Local Chefs. Chef Battles. Cooking Demos!

The Bite Cooks! Presented by Thai Select and Albert Lee Appliance

Do you love watching cooking shows on TV? The Bite Cooks!, presented by Thai Select and Albert Lee Appliance, and hosted by Chef Thierry Rautureau, aka 'The Chef in The Hat', now in his 12th year as host, brings that kind of fun & excitement to a live stage featuring a selection of the Greater Seattle area's finest chefs. The Bite Cooks! is located on Fisher Rooftop of Seattle Center.  

Cooking Demos:

Each day local chefs will perform cooking demonstrations of some of their favorite dishes and guests will have the opportunity to get a copy of recipe to try at home!   All demonstrations will be done on a fully-equipped stage provided by Albert Lee Appliance. Thank you to Charlie's Produce for a generous donation of fresh produce for The Bite Cooks! 

Mystery IngredientS Cook-Offs:

Who will be named The Bite Cooks! Master? Local chefs will go head-to-head in a mystery ingredient cook-off! For the cook-offs, chefs will be given 3 mystery ingredients, a small pantry of basic cooking staples and 30 minutes to
make their dish. Then, it will be up to the audience to judge the
chef's final entrée to determine the winner!
