About This Book
In the Kitchen The Costco Way is the seventh in our series of cookbooks
designed to showcase the exciting array of foods sold at Costco. It is being
distributed free to our members on a first-come, first-served basis the weekend
after Thanksgiving as a token of our appreciation for their membership.
In this year’s book we are proud to present two special features. The nutritional
content of recipes developed by healthy-eating expert Devin Alexander or
submitted by our food suppliers is included with the recipes in the “Healthy
Dishes” chapter beginning on page 10. For our “Kitchen Basics” section (page
85), we asked the legendary Martha Stewart to suggest her Top 10 kitchen tools,
basic bakeware and essentials for stocking the pantry. She also developed
three recipes for our “Chef’s Choice” chapter (page 88) using our Kirkland
Our popular “Chef’s Choice” chapter offers 30 pages of recipes developed by
10 of the country’s most accomplished chefs. All of these chefs have achieved
national renown with cookbooks of their own, television shows and/or exceptional restaurants. Thanks to all of them for helping to make this another exciting addition to The Costco Way cookbook series.
The rest of the book is arranged in a simple and direct manner with sections
for breakfast, appetizers, salads and soups, side dishes, entrées, desserts and
beverages. The index at the back of the book contains listings by recipe and
food item. We also have included a “Supplier Listing” section with contact
information for all of the participating food suppliers.
Every recipe in In the Kitchen The Costco Way has been identified with the supplier’s
name and logo. We want to thank each of these suppliers for their support of this
book. (Please note that some branded products may not be sold in your part of
the country. In such cases, you should substitute a similar product.)
I hope you will enjoy many wonderful meals using this book and that some of
these dishes end up in your own collection of favorite recipes.
