Book Larder opened on October 12, 2011, offering a carefully selected collection of new and imported cookbooks to lovers of food and cooking in Seattle and beyond.  We are also a spot to gather for author events, cooking classes, demonstrations and other food related discussions, both formal and informal.  When you visit, we hope you’ll linger over titles that catch your fancy, and make yourself at home around our big kitchen counter.

Here are a few articles that have appeared over the past few years that will tell you a bit more about who we are and what we do:
