As part of her Roots Cookbook Tour, noted Portland, Oregon cookbook author, Diane Morgan, brings her newest tome, Roots: The Definitive Compendium with more than 225 Recipes (Chronicle Books; $40), to Seattle for a special dinner and book signing on Wednesday, December 5th at Trace. This go-to compendium is both a comprehensive reference book and a cookbook of simple yet creative ways to prepare dozens of different root vegetables, the local ones and the global ones—from beets, to malanga, to wasabi.
Chef de Cuisine Steven Ariel will execute recipes from Diane’s cookbook, putting his own spin on a delicious, 5-course dinner with an optional wine pairing.
