The organizers of the Seattle Chocolate Salon are pleased to announce that Chef John Sundstrom of Lark Restaurant in Seattle will be presenting and discussing his latest cookbook at the Salon on July 23rd.

John Sundstrom is chef and owner of Lark restaurant in Seattle. He has been named one of Food & Wine’s Best New Chefs, won an IACP Judges Choice Award, and won a James Beard Award for Best Chef Northwest.

His new book is Lark: Cooking Wild in the Northwest. In it he tells the story of Seattle’s popular restaurant, Lark, and shares his recipes for the local seasonal cuisine that has made it a Northwest destination for over ten years. Now available in paperback, Lark is John Sundstrom’s culinary homage to the Pacific Northwest, inspiration for his rustic yet elegant cuisine.

In this new edition Sundstrom adds a chapter of his restaurant’s favorite everyday kitchen staples, including recipes for cordials and syrups, house-made pasta, mayonnaise, dressings, breads, and smoked and pickled foods. Lark celebrates the distinctly moody and majestic Northwest and its bounty of ingredients with more than 100 recipes and stunning full-color photographs.
