To Our Valued Members
We are delighted to offer this gift in time for the holidays—the tenth annual book in The Costco Way cookbook series—to thank you for
your business and loyal membership. This book has been made possible
through the support of Costco’s many food suppliers.
To help mark this 10-year milestone we’ve featured a special cake—in this
case Costco’s famous Kirkland Signature All American Chocolate Cake—
on our cover. Although you won’t find the recipe included here (it’s a trade
secret), you can purchase this cake in the bakery section of our warehouses.
And you can use this delicious cake in a recipe for Chocolate Almond Bonbons
on page 121.
The first thing you’ll see as you start leafing through this year’s book is a
selection of members’ favorite recipes from the past nine cookbooks in
The Costco Way series. What better way to celebrate a tenth anniversary than
to take a look back at highlights from years past? I hope you enjoy seeing
these member favorites as much as I did. The best recipes truly are timeless.
Returning again in this anniversary edition is our special “Chef’s Choice”
section in the middle of the book. It features recipes from many of our
favorite celebrity chefs such as Jamie Oliver, Aaron McCargo, Jr., and Lidia
Matticchio Bastianich. These top chefs have worked their magic to develop
recipes using their favorite ingredients from Costco.
Old or new, the secret to all the great dishes featured in this book is top-quality ingredients. When you purchase your ingredients from Costco, you
know that you are getting the best—and at a great price.
We hope you enjoy A Decade of Cooking The Costco Way and that you 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 home page.
Bon appétit from all of us at Costco. And here’s to the next 10 years!
