Alaska Cod Parmesean
Culture Dose: Alaska Seafood Recipes
Feast on the bounty of the season. If you live in Seattle, you know that the arrival of certain coveted items can make headlines, sending food lovers into an excited tizzy. In May, for example, city-wide restaurants and vendors (like Pure Food Fish Market in Pike Place) released announcements heralding the much-anticipated arrival of Wild Alaskan Copper River Salmon. (Fun fact: Alaska is the source of nearly 60% of the seafood harvested in America, including 90% of its wild salmon.)  (more…)

Restaurant Radar: Naka Serves an Impressive Japanese Kaiseki Meal
Chef Shota Nakajima served a standout meal bringing Seattle its first traditional kaiseki-style Japanese restaurant. The overall experience at Naka is one of the best in recent memory. The atmosphere is modern, with light music playing in the background, and only a half-full dining area. The chic bar was busier than the dining room on the weeknight we visited, but gets fully booked on the weekend.  (more…)
