Lunch at the Shop
I have been craving Peter Miller’s debut book, Lunch at the Shop, as if it were an ounce of the finest dark chocolate. Now that it is here, it is I who is melting into it, lost in the stories of food and foraging that define Seattle’s fresh food scene, and enraptured by the wit and heart that will make you adore Peter Miller as much as I do.
My most recent visit to Seattle will forever be defined in my mind by my time with Peter. During the day, he led me through Pike’s Place Market, introduced me to every vendor (each his longtime friend), taught me how and where to buy wine, explained the history of his favorite restaurants, chefs and their families… and instead of giving me directions to my next destination, he walked me there. Before parting ways, Peter suggested a late afternoon walk, and then insisted I join him and and his wife Colleen for dinner.
It is not often I meet someone as warm and caring, someone who appreciates life and takes time… no, makes time… to breathe it all in. Now you can have the privilege of sharing his company too. Lunch at the Shop will warm your heart, make you laugh and make you fall in love with the very idea of preparing and sharing a meal. Should you decide to treat yourself to Lunch at the Shop, I promise you will be as nourished by it as by any meal.
