Yes, we’ve dreamed up another great way to raise funds for the Ballard Food Bank. Gloria Jackson, an extraordinary cook and great fellow realtor, wanted to do a small appetizer cookbook, something thoughtful featuring organic farmer’s market produce, perhaps something seasonal. We’ve taken that concept and run with it, and hope to be hosting a competition of some of the best Spring and Summer appetizers out there, original recipes, in mid-June at the Phinery right on the corner of 65th & Phinney. With Marlin behind the photographer’s lens we will have an e-cookbook in the works, and as recipes are tasted we can gleam which are favorites, with the top chef receiving a bottle of Champagne. Nothing like a bit of competition to heat things up. Stay tuned for more developments on this fun fundraiser.
