'Shiro Says': Words to Use at the Sushi Counter

Seattle's first sushi chef, Shiro, whose new memoir we excerpted in our December issue, offers several helpful tips in the book for consuming sushi like a pro.

Over the years, the sushi bar has developed its own special jargon, including its very own way of counting, which allows the chef to bark out the total for a meal to the cashier without appearing rude. Here are a few of the words used by those in the know: Read more »

By: 
Cody Bay

Long before James Beard Award-winning chefs began taking it to the streets, food trucks were feeding L.A. on the fast and cheap for decades, with immigrants serving primarily Mexican staples like tacos, tinga and offal, or the classics of Asia: steamed buns, fried noodles and boiled peanuts.

Questions for a National Geographic Underwater Photographer

For thirty years, Brian Skerry has explored the planet’s oceans, publishing his findings frequently in National Geographic. He's captured some of the most fascinating creatures under water, including whales the size of metro buses, Leatherback sea turtles and Tiger sharks. But his work has also led him to witness devastating problems like overfishing and marine degradation from pollution.

Seattle World’s Fair is Cool Again (Thanks to Café Nordo)

Visiting the Space Needle was not on the top of my “must list” when I moved to Seattle six years ago.

To be honest, it seemed like one of the city's miscalculated impulseslike getting a lower back tattoo or a car phone.

Maybe that's because my vision of future worlds is more fired up by the likes of Back to the Future or Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure than that of the Jetsons. Read more »

Thanksgiving Cheat Sheet, Part 6: Let the Turkey Rest

Remember that the turkey can sit, cooked, under foil on the counter for 45 minutes and be perfectly fine (actually better!) than if you're rushing it to the table and cutting into it right away.

Meat that is allowed to rest is juicier, so err on the side of having the turkey done early: just tent with foil and use the oven to rewarm or keep warm the green bean casserole and mashed potatoes. 

This also means you have plenty of time to get the gravy just right.  

Happy Thanksgiving!

A La Mode Doubles as Pie Shop and Community Center

By: 
Rachel Hart

In case you haven’t heard, pies are the new cupcakes. And with all the sweet shops dotting our landscape, most of them with tasty enough pies, picking the best one comes down to a couple of things for me: experience and proximity.

Check and check, ever since Chris Porter (below) opened A La Mode Pies on Phinney ridge and 59th a couple of weeks ago.

He not only gave the pie-neglected Phinney/Greenwood/east Ballard neighborhoods a much needed boost but also carved out a mini community center of sorts. Read more »

Thanksgiving Cheat Sheet, Part 5: Cocktail Snacks

Cocktail hour is essential in my holiday happiness (Don't judge, Schick Shadel).

Luckily my inlaws are Midwestern, so instead of water they just drink Labatts starting at noon.  But still, cocktail hour comes around every day around 4pm. Read more »
