Chef Tom Douglas cooks up Issaquah stop
November 13, 2012
Renowned Seattle chef Tom Douglas is due in Issaquah just before Thanksgiving, to promote a cookbook packed with recipes for treats, including a famed coconut cream pie.
Douglas is scheduled to sign copies of “The Dahlia Bakery Cookbook: Sweetness in Seattle” at Costco, 1801 10th Ave. N.W., from 5-6:30 p.m. Nov. 19.
The cookbook contains 125 recipes for cakes, cookies, ice creams, pastries, pies, sandwiches, tarts and more. Food Network star — and recent Issaquah Costco visitor — Giada de Laurentiis called the doughnuts in the book the “best thing I ever ate.”
Douglas, proprietor of a dozen Seattle restaurants and with more on the way, is the 2012 James Beard Outstanding Restaurateur Award winner — the top honor in the United States for a restaurateur.
