Chris Young & Grant Crilly: The Everyday Science of Cooking, featuring the Pike Place Market

Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue. $10 ($5 from every ticket will be donated to The Pike Place Market Foundation)

Special Programming

Just in time for the holidays, ChefSteps offers a uniquely local look at the simple science of the ingredients you cook with. Do you know the best way to preserve a carrot’s flavor? Does searing a steak really seal in the juices? ChefSteps founders Chris Young, co-author of Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking, and Grant Crilly, former Modernist Cuisine development chef, show how a basic understanding of your ingredients can improve your everyday, and extraordinary, meals. Using live demos and original videos and photography by Ryan Matthew Smith, Young and Crilly explore the surprising science of everyday cooking through a virtual tour of Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Market purveyors also are on hand for the talk (as well as before and after for tastes and questions in the lobby), and Seattle’s Book Larder sells delicious cookbooks (perfect for the foodies on your holiday gift list). Presented by ChefSteps with Town Hall.

Tickets are $10 at or 888/377-4510 and at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. $5 from every sale will be donated to The Pike Place Market Foundation. Town Hall members receive priority seating. Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue.
