What: Cooking Demonstration
When: Sunday June 23rd, 2013, from noon to 1pm
Where: In the Pike Place Market, as part of “Summer Sundays on the Cobblestones”
On Sunday, June 23rd, I will be giving a cooking demonstration in the middle of the street at the Pike Place Market. The event, which will take place from 12noon to 1pm, is part of Summer Sundays on the Cobblestones, when Pike Place is closed to cars to make way for more farmer stands, musicians and other fun stuff, like cooking demonstrations.
I haven’t yet decided what I will be cooking, but you can be sure that I will be using produce available on Market stands that day. And I will be offering samples of the dish that I prepare. There is no charge for either the demonstration or the tasting, so brace yourself for summer crowds and come by.

Dining Out for Life 2013
Thursday April 25, 2013
The concept behind Dining Out for Life, which is celebrating its 20th year in Seattle, is simple: just eat out at any of a whole ton of participating restaurants, and a portion of the cost of your entire meal goes directly to the Life Long AIDS Alliance. Its that easy. Get together a group, bring all your friends. The more you spend, the more money is raised for this fantastic organization.
At Le Pichet and Cafe Presse, we are excited to once again be a part of this very worthwhile event. Both restaurants will be donating 30% of the entire days revenue, so make plans now to come by at lunch or dinner or just for coffee, snacks or drinks. It all helps the cause.
As Seattle has always supported Dining Out for Life enthusiastically, reservations for that evening can be hard to come by. For reservations, call:
Cafe Presse 206 709-7674
Le Pichet 206 256-1499
Cafe Presse and Le Pichet will be open regular hours over the Easter Weekend, March 30 to April 1, 2013.
Cafe Presse is open everyday from 7am until 2am
Le Pichet is open everyday from 8am until midnight

A decorated pate was one of the early courses at the Winter Supper at the Corson Building to raise money for Jubilee Women’s Center and the Pike Market Senior Center
On February 24, 2013, Le Pichet and Cafe Presse teamed up with the Corson Building, Bar Sejor, Sitka and Spruce, Bar Ferd’nand and Le Caviste to cook an over the top Winter Supper at the Corson Building. The idea, which was hatched jointly by Matt Dillon and myself, was to cook an old style, elaborate country French dinner, to charge a ton of money and then to give all the proceeds to two charitable groups who are doing great work in our community: Jubilee Women’s Center and the Pike Market Senior Center. The event was sold out, and we were very pleased to be able to raise over $6000 for these two fantastic groups.
The menu, when all the creative dust settled, featured 10 courses paired with 10 different wines or alcohols, all served by some the top service professionals in the city: Joanne Herron of Le Pichet and Cafe Presse, Marc Papineau of Bar Ferd’nand and David Butler of Le Caviste. Coffee was provided by our friends at Caffe Vita, who were on hand to prepare pour-overs at the end of the evening.
For those of you who were able to attend, THANKS SO MUCH FOR MAKING THIS EVENING POSSIBLE. And if you missed this event, here are a few photos that I hope will make you wish you had been there. Continue reading
