One of our Favorites
"Chefshop has been, from its founding, one of Marcella’s – and mine – favorite sources of ingredients for our kitchen. The variety and quality of both packaged and fresh, local and imported foods that Eliza and Tim discover and gather, is immensely satisfying to us. When Marcella stopped in Seattle in 2008 to present her memoir, Amarcord, Eliza and Tim opened the doors of their shop and warehouse to host an unforgettable reception and generous tasting of their specialties. Marcella was greatly moved. It was the last event of her career, which ended with her life a few years later. Before her passing, Marcella had written a guide to the market, her favorite subject, which is being published posthumously by Scribner. On the occasion, Chefshop is hosting another extraordinary party. There will be no more books coming from Marcella to celebrate here, making this a unique gastronomic and literary event that no one will want to miss."

Mark your calendars!

Stop by the shop on Saturday May 4th, and meet Victor Hazan. Bring your books, or buy one here - and he would be happy to sign them.

For those who are not familiar, Victor was Marcella Hazan's "better half", and a key partner in the writing and production of some of the classic Italian cookbooks that we all know and and love.  Victor is in Seattle as his son, Giuliano, prepares to conduct three cooking classes at ChefShop.com this weekend. So, it's a great opportunity to stop by and say hi to Victor, and have him sign a copy of his last book, INGREDIENTI: Marcella’s Guide to the Market  (Simon and Schuster, 2016. List price, $20.00), or Marcella's most famous cookbook, Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking (Knopf, 1992. List price: $35.00). Both books are available for sale in the store - or bring your (well used) copy from home.

The book signing is very casual - come by any time between 11:00 and 2:00. Store address: 1425 Elliott Ave West (between Magnolia and Queen Anne)
 

When Marcella Hazan, the beloved author of The Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking, passed away in 2013, she left behind a handwritten manuscript for her next book: a simple guide to shopping for, and cooking with, the best ingredients. In INGREDIENTI: Marcella’s Guide to the Market, Hazan distills her legendary kitchen wisdom and her years of experience in finding and cooking with fine ingredients.

As with all of Marcella’s books, INGREDIENTI was translated and organized by her husband, Victor Hazan, himself an authority on food and wine. And after nearly 60 years of observing Marcella as she cooked, and transcribing her often intuitive methods, Hazan channels Marcella’s signature voice. INGREDIENTI is a tribute to their marriage, culinary partnership and legacy. Victor has dedicated the book to Marcella.
