BUSINESS UPDATES: O’Nelll Plumbing discount; PCC online cooking classes

Two updates from local businesses that are both longtime WSB sponsors:

O’NEILL PLUMBING DISCOUNT: Noticing that plumbing problem more now that you’re working at home? Here’s the Morgan Junction-based plumbing company’s offer:

West Seattle’s own O’Neill Plumbing is currently offering 30% OFF for all West Seattle residents on Service Calls through the end of May.

They know that with layoffs, bridge closures, and everyone staying at home, times are tougher these days. For more than 103 years, O’Neill Plumbing has been calling West Seattle home and they will continue to be here for their neighbors. And with the bridge closed, they most likely can be there faster than anyone else. They appreciate your support and they look forward to seeing you out and about soon. Stay safe, West Seattle. and save 30% by calling O’Neill Plumbing @ 206-932-5283.


As spending more time at home becomes a new normal, a lot of us are looking for fun, lighthearted (virtual!) events to take our minds off things. PCC Community Markets is here to help.

The co-op will be holding online cooking demonstrations through Zoom for just $25. With demos like ‘One-Hour Bagels’ and ‘Thai Flavors at Home’, students will have the opportunity take a peek inside PCC instructors’ home kitchens as they share personal stories and tips while they demonstrate flavorful dishes that can be created after class.

Recipes will be shared in advance, so students have the opportunity to gather ingredients and prepare questions for the instructor. A recorded version will be available afterwards to reference at any time!

Upcoming classes include pizza and bagels as well as international cuisines.

    I’ve been doing online cooking classes with other outfits since the lockdown began.  Has anyone else taken an in person PCC cooking class?  Just curious what you think.  How much are in person classes compared to the online class? I’d imagine more, given that in person classes tend to include the ingredients.  For the more unusual recipes (international) I wonder/hope they stock all the ingredients you would need. Only makes sense.

      Hiya West Seattle Guy – I’ve taken a few cooking classes at PCC. If memory serves they are $50-60ish and include tastes of the food. The classes are great for learning about techniques, ingredients, different cuisines, etc. I’ve found that the PCC usually carries the ingredients in the recipes, even for the Thai class.

    We signed up for two of the classes. I’m hoping that PCC sends us the ingredients soon for the May 1 and May 3 class. We are doing instacart for groceries and need a heads up in advance of ingredients so we can place our order for delivery. Often delivery is not available for quite a few days out. I emailed them about this but haven’t heard back. Otherwise I’m excited for the classes! A fun change in the routine for those days!

    I’ve taken more than 20 cooking classes from PCC. Every single one was outstanding.  The instructors are extremely skilled and clearly love cooking and teaching. It’s too bad the full experience of being there isn’t possible right now but you can’t go wrong taking their classes.  For me it’s one of the best deals anywhere. Tips on how to make cooking easier are always included. There are always lots of questions from the students that can reveal the whys behind some approaches and ingredients.  I remember one class where we ended up talking in detail about the best salts to use in roasting, sautéing, and baking — all different. I always learn a lot in each class. The food’s delicious and the prices can’t be beat.

    The next class in the online series will be chef Omid Roustaei, teaching a couple of simple Persian dishes from his kitchen right here in West Seattle.

    I’ve assisted with PCC cooking classes for the last 10yrs and for $25 it’s a major bargain. The instructors are outstanding and you’ll learn more than just recipes. Unfortunately no samples…enjoy making your own!
