Greg Atkinson - Storyteller in and out of the kitchen

"Atkinson has one hand on his All-Clad and one in the dirt. He's a storyteller with his cooking". Jonathan Kauffman/Seattle Weekly

This Thursday you have the chance to meet and hear speak a premier voice in the realms of Pacific Northwest Cuisine, Greg Atkinson. Author of books, newspaper columns, radio broadcasts on KUOW 94.9, restaurant consultant, prior head chef at the Canlis restaurant and now instructor at Seattle Central Community College - this man has a passion for local food.

He began by writing a weekly column in the San Juan Islands about seasonal ingredients, his recipes and the people that he got the food from, and things just grew from there. Not many individuals are blessed with the ability to create and then vividly write about it, but with 4 books already under his belt(here) and an incredible ability to cook, Greg is doubly blessed.

Tickets for the event are available directly at the Renton Historical Museum or at the door of the Carco Theater on the day of the event. This is the last of a wonderful speaker program that was created in tandem with the Smithsonian exhibit Key Ingredients - America by Food. I recommend calling in advance for your ticket. (425) 255-2330
