To Our Valued Members
We are delighted to offer this gift—our seventh annual cookbook in our
series of Costco Way cookbooks—to thank you for your business and loyal
membership. This book has been made possible through the support of Costco’s
many food suppliers.
As in past years, we’ve asked our suppliers to develop recipes that showcase
their products that we sell at Costco. We have also included recipes from
many of our favorite celebrity chefs such as Sandra Lee, Martha Stewart, Ina
Gartner and Paula Deen in the “Chef’s Choice” section in the center of the
book. These top chefs have worked their magic to develop recipes and tips
using their favorite ingredients from Costco. Most of the recipes throughout
the book have a short list of affordable, readily available ingredients and are
quick and easy to prepare.
This year, you’ll also find a new chapter, “Healthy Dishes.” It’s a perfect addition since many of us are trying to adopt a healthier lifestyle for ourselves and
our families. You can also find healthy recipes in other parts of the book. For
example, in our “Chef’s Choice” chapter you’ll find healthy and delicious recipes
from Jessica Seinfeld, Myra Goodman and Ellie Krieger.
And yes, you can eat healthy and shop at Costco! We sell lots of fresh fruits
and vegetables, lean meats, poultry, fish, nuts, olive oil, whole grain breads,
whole wheat pasta and healthy snacks. You just can’t eat the whole package
in one sitting!
Of course, the secret to any great dish is using only top-quality ingredients.
When you purchase your ingredients from Costco, you know that you are
off to a great start. As Sandra Lee explains in her foreword on the next page,
Costco does 70 percent of the work for you.
We hope you enjoy In the Kitchen The Costco Way and try out our recipes with
your family and friends. You can also find our past years’ cookbooks online
at costco.com. Just type “Costco Cookbooks” in the search window on our
Bon appétit from all of us at Costco!
