My intention is to bring back a local feel to the page, to tout as many local recipes as possible and in time to get our local restaurants and their chefs involved as well. When I moved here last September from Seattle my first order of business was to have breakfast at a local restaurant. What I found at Fuller's Family Restaurant was a breakfast far better than anything I had encountered in countless restaurants in Seattle over the previous four years. While I have repeated that experience several times already and plan to continue to do so regularly, I know there are more great food experiences in our area and I would like this column and page to not only enhance our home cooking experiences, but shed some light on some of our local dining gems as well.
So please accept this invitation to share your local recipe treasures, tips and food knowledge. Placing the highest priority, of course, on those recipes or meals that you feel can qualify not only as healthy in a parent's eyes, but that will win over the ever-critical and over-opinionated palate of my 4-year-old son.
