Recs for Best Greek Restaurant - Seattle

Vios on Capitol Hill is excellent. Yanni's and Panos also very good.

Pastries on the Eastside (SEA)?

Good luck! Hoffman's in Kirkland has lost its mojo and it's specialty was cakes not pastries.

Cafe Besalu in Ballard is tops for pain au chocolate. Columbia City Bakery does nice job as well.

Until someone with pastry passion decides to set up shop on the Eastside, local residents will have to look wistfully westard over Lake WA with a gummy sweet QFC pastry stuck to their teeth.

Farmer's markets are more miss than hit.

Cook Like a Chef

Polycarbonate plastic leaches bisphenol A a chemical compound with estrogen like properties. Durable yes, safe...unknown.

It is important not just to source quality food but also to handle it safely without exposing consumers to potential toxins.

Knife sharpening in Seattle?

The guy who runs Epicurean Edge in Kirkland trained under Bob Kramer. He does a great job with sharpening. I trusted my custom Kramer chef's knife to him
