HistoryLunch 2018: The Delicious Story of the Food & People of the Pike Place Market
Join us at the Four Seasons Hotel, 99 Union St., Seattle, on September 13 at 11:30 am as we explore the delicious story of the food and people of the Pike Place Market. We are excited to present a menu inspired by the Pike Place Market and the wilds of the Northwest, which will be curated by Tom Douglas and Four Seasons banquet chef, Jason Melton.
In July 1907, responding to farmer and consumer complaints, the Seattle City Council, led by Thomas P. Revelle, passed an ordinance to establish a farmers market at Pike Place to allow farmers to sell directly to the public and eliminate the middleman, presaging today’s Farm to Table movement.
Recently, HistoryLink moved its office into the Pike Place Market, and we were so thrilled and inspired that we decided to make it the subject of this year’s HistoryLunch. We started looking for the perfect person to help us explore the subject of the food and the people of the Pike Place Market, which lead us to . . .
Tom Douglas: Not only is Tom Douglas an award-winning chef, successful restaurateur, and an innovator who helped define Pacific Northwest cuisine—he also farms his own produce. He will be joined by Pamela Hinckley, CEO/ CVO of Tom Douglas Seattle Kitchen. They will introduce you to the people who make the Market what it is—the Soul of the City.
