Editorial Reviews

Review

...a wonderful rush of a book, filled with photographs of that dazzling mundane place... Jess gathered ingredients and recipes from nearly every purveyor in the place and turned those random scribblings into something great. "The Pike Place Market inspires good eating" reads the back cover. That was certainly true in this house. Danny and I flipped through the book and wanted to make nearly everything — wild mushroom tagliatelle! Spanish chickpea and chorizo stew! deviled duck eggs with green olives, smoked paprika, and fried capers! 
Shauna Ahern, Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef

...an excellent collection of recipes and stories from Seattle’s public market. I laughed out loud so many times while reading some of the really great anecdotes in the book.  I give it two thumbs up!
Monica Bhide, A Life of Spice

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread? Bliss, and perfect with a cup of Market Spice tea (the original flavor, if you have to ask). The apple clafouti—what she calls the French Apple Custard Cake—is another bit of bliss, combining the best of the produce smells with the best of the buttery bakeries. For savory things, the Spicy Marinated Feta is lovely, redolent of all the market’s garlicky, spicy, pickled delights. ...reading and cooking with Jess's book is as close as I've ever come to duplicating a physical walk through the market without actually being there.
Edible Seattle
 
Seattle writer Jess Thomson navigates the wild wonders of our world-famous Market via this go-to guide, which includes recipes for fresh offerings at market stalls as well as specialties by Seattle restaurant royalty. Learn the secret to Le Pichet’s salade verte, the pulled-pork sandwich at Matt’s in the Market and Fran’s Gold Bar brownies from Fran’s Chocolates.
Seattle Magazine

The cookbook has a good balance of simple recipes (including some particularly drool-worthy sopaipillas, fresh tortillas fried and topped with chipotle, cinnamon, and cumin) and more complex, fancy dinner party recipes (like a clam, mussel, and white bean paella). In the book, the vendors’ hints are successfully combined with Thomson’s food wisdom... With Pike Place Recipes, Thomson invites readers into the market as more than overwhelmed tourists or jaded locals—instead we arrive as excited home chefs and members of an ever-growing food community.
Nosh Pit blog, Seattle Metropolitan

Seattle’s iconic Pike Place Market is teeming with inspiration for delicious dishes, and likewise is home to many of our city’s most beloved shops and restaurants. Thomson has collected into one volume the best of the best to be had at the Market, such as Market Spice Tea Cake, Downtown Duck Salad from the Pear Delicatessen, and Marche’s Mussels with Pernod Cream. As if that isn’t tasty enough, she also gives us a plethora of menu suggestions, handy hints and tips, and a listing of shops and restaurants featured in the book.
Dishing with Kathy Casey

She did a terrific job of fleshing out this collection of shops and stores and stalls in her book, Pike Place Market Recipes: 130 Delicious Ways to Bring Home Seattle's Famous Market, beautifully photographed by Clare Barboza... Brilliant!
Al Dente

Pike Place Market Recipes is more than a cookbook, flipping through its pages is like taking a tour through the variety and delight of Seattle's famous public market... The result is a book that captures the importance of place to a market like Pike Place. The place where things come from, but also the place that is the market itself. A historic landmark, a public gathering place, an anchor for a city.
About.com Local Foods

The recipes in Jess' book are simple in design and execution but full of complex flavors -- and right there is some Pike Place Market Magic at work.  What I love even more than the recipes is that she seems to have captured the "soul of Seattle" between the pages of a book - no easy feat, that, and one that will help locals and tourists, alike, celebrate our market for what I hope is a hundred more years.
Chef Reinvented

The book is well worth a look even if you're not from Seattle...it's full of fantastic recipes, and wonderful stories about the famed and storied market.
CakeSpy 

I couldn’t imagine a more perfect gift for a newcomer to the Seattle area than this book. It’s part guidebook, part cookbook, part tale of food-lover in paradise.
Gastrognome

What you need to know about Jess comes through in everything she does. She pours her heart and soul into her writing. In this book, she basically connects you with the souls of the market and gets their recipes. But that’s not it, she also gives you tips on what to do with foods you can find like her 10 way lists where she gives you 10 inspirational things to do with ingredients. This book is jam-packed with recipes and beautiful photos that highlight the beauty of the market. This is such a nice gift for someone who likes to cook.

Have you been to The Pike Place Market? Then you'll love this cook book. It will take you back to vendors you visited and make you remember the vast array of ingredients available. Each recipe I've tried has been a triumph. If you haven't been there, then make a recipe, enjoy it's success and it will make you long to visit. The recipes do not call for exotic ingredients you cannot get in other areas of the country, by the way. This book was a treat...so glad I got it!

Bought this as a gift for some out of town friends, and they really loved it. They enjoyed seeing recipes from places they recognized from their trip to the market. It's a well done, attractive book.

After living in and leaving Seattle, this was a great book to remember a favorite place of mine when there and relive some of the great food/recipes from the region.

Ordered this from a segment I saw on the cooking channel and am so pleased. What a wonderful book and the recipes are relevant no matter where you live although some ingredients may not be readily available. A little imagination and ingenuity and you can make anything in this wonderful book!
