Edge of Seattle Cooking
The staff at Edge of Seattle Cooking ushers guests onto its lush, 5 acres of wooded land for gustatory experiences ranging from simple, peaceful relaxation to a romantic and refined experience in this culinary destination. An extensive roster of chefs, including French natives and a culinary instructor from the Art Institute of Seattle, welcomes students to six-hour, hands-on cooking classes, ongoing class series, and Michelin-starred bake sales. Classes instruct students in a range of skills, from basic kitchen competency to how to whip up haute cuisine, and many courses focus on classic French cooking methods. Owner and Proprietor Nancy Gates-Douglas developed her love for food and wine growing up in Morocco and the Loire Valley of France, and these culinary roots spurred her to create the inn as a place for celebrating French regional cuisine and Washington-state wines. The inn itself combines the provincial with the modern by incorporating such contemporary touches as wireless Internet into its bedrooms and banquet areas, which brim with French antiques and fluffy, decorative lap dogs.
