Ivar's Seafood Cookbook

If Ivar's isn't a Seattle landmark, it ought to be. Serving local seafood--salmon, oysters, clams, halibut--for 75 years, it is one of the most successful restaurants in the Pacific Northwest. With their first cookbook, they serve up home-cooking recipes from the restaurant's extensive repertoire of seafood dishes. But what else would you expect from the folks whose motto is "keep clam?" Ivar's has a lively history of creative self-promotion, from their wild, giant dancing clams ads to their announced plan to introduce the iSpoon in 2015. The cookbook contains 60 of Ivar's best recipes, tantalizing photography, and a gathering of anecdotes and ephemera from three-quarters of a century of restaurant adventures, marketing feats and  pranks, and dedication to serving its customers.
