From Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor):
15th Annual Cooking with Class 2016 at Salty’s on Alki
Cook with Your Favorite Seattle Chefs, Sept. 15 2016
Sometimes a good idea just keeps on giving. Cooking with Class is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year having raised almost a million dollars over these many years. People love getting to know Seattle area chefs and cooking with them, and chefs love meeting their guests instead of being behind the scenes as they are at most fundraisers. It’s a win-win for everyone, especially our beneficiary. This year we embark in a new direction specifically targeting programs that assist seniors at the Pike Place Market Foundation. Seniors can get overlooked in the world of fundraising; we like to focus on helping make their lives a little more secure and comfortable.
Join us at this fun event on September 15, 2016, at Salty’s on Alki in West Seattle. Tickets sell out every year, so be sure to check out seattledining.com/cwc for the list of chefs and the food items they will teach you about and availability. Each chef donates their time, experience and product. Auction and raffle items, and the great items in the gift bags, are all donated. It’s an amazing amount of good will. The topper is, of course, Salty’s on Alki. For 15 years they have donated the venue — their entire banquet floor at sea level. They have three chefs at the event. They feed the volunteers before the event. They feed volunteers and chefs at a post party. They provide appetizers before the classes begin. They never charge us a cleaning fee (22 chefs, 176 guests cooking; imagine the cleanup). Thank you, Gerry and Kathy Kingen, for your amazing generosity. The event couldn’t happen without you!
This year Taylor Shellfish returns to shuck oysters on the front deck before classes start where you can also enjoy these fine oyster-friendly wines:
Long Shadows 2015 Nine Hats Pinot Gris
Davenport Cellars Sauvignon Blanc and Fume Blanc
Blends Inc. Tomero Torrontes
Dunham Cellars 2014 Lewis Vineyard Riesling
Treveri Extra Brut
Brian Carter Oriana
Be sure to also look for the Wine Tasting Table with a taste of the wines served during class. If you’ve never experienced Cooking with Class, make this the year you sign up — go online to seattledining.com/cwc. It’s a fun evening that helps a lot of people and takes place in one of the nicest spots in town with the best view of Seattle. There’s just nothing bad about it.
