Northwest Home Cooking Recipes

Pike Place Market is a public market overlooking the Elliott Bay waterfront in Seattle, Washington, United States. Northwest cuisine is an North American cuisine of the states of Oregon, Washington and Alaska, and the provinces of British Columbia and the southern Yukon.  The cuisine reflects the ethnic makeup of the region, with noticeable influence from Asian and Native American traditions. 

Seattle's Pike Place Market is considered the "hub" of this culinary style, although Portland and Vancouver are also influential cities.  Common ingredients in the cuisine include salmon, shellfish, and other fresh seafood, game meats such as moose, elk, or caribou, mushrooms, berries, small fruits, potatoes, and wild plants such as fiddleheads or even young pushki. Smoking fish or grilling seafood on cedar planks are techniques often used in this cuisine.

There is generally an emphasis on fresh ingredients, simply prepared, but unlike other cuisine styles, there are various recipes for each dish, with none of them considered more or less correct than the others.  This has led some food writers to question whether it truly is a "cuisine" in the traditional sense of the word.
