seattle cooks - did anyone (else) go?

reese | Nov 19, 2003 05:49 PM

i went to the seattle cooks food show on saturday - my second one in the 6+ years i've lived in seattle. going at 10am was ideal - it got very crowded. i thought it was a worthwhile time/$ investment - i got some delicious mustapha harissa (which i hadn't seen in stores before) and got to sample and buy buona tavola products - i'm too lazy to get to the market all the time - though i just heard a cheese shop is going in where the garden shop used to be - how cool is that?

i'm curious to know what others think of this/this type of event. it's definitely corporate-sponsored, (which i think of as a negative) but i was able to get a gorgeous bamboo cutting board for 1/2 the price it would have been at capers, support a tiny kirkland based smoked salmon company and generally avoid what i think of as the boring hype-y stuff (why you should avoid cast iron and aluminum pans etc). is this the wrong forum for this? seems like this is the kind of event a chowhound would want to go to (and possibly grouse about) and i'm surprised that i haven't seen any posts on it. thanks
