This is the fourth volume in our The Costco Way cookbook series. As with last
year’s book, Easy Cooking The Costco Way, 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.
For Creative Cooking The Costco Way we have asked a number of America’s
outstanding chefs to team with some of our vendors to show off their delectable
products to the best advantage. You will find these special dishes in the “Chef’s
Choice” section beginning on page 68. Each of these chefs has achieved national
renown with cookbooks of their own, shows or appearances on The Food
Network or exceptional restaurants. I want to thank them all for joining
us in this exciting addition to our The Costco Way cookbooks.
The rest of the book is arranged according to type of dish, with sections for
breakfast, appetizers, salads and soups, side dishes, entrées, desserts and beverages,
the same approach we adopted with last year’s book. To make finding what you
are looking for as simple as possible, the index at the back of the book contains
listings by vendor, recipe title and food item.
If you have friends and family who have not been able to obtain a copy of
this book or Easy Cooking The Costco Way, you can direct them to the online
versions at www.costcoconnection.com, where both books can be searched
Every recipe in Creative Cooking The Costco Way has been identified with the
vendor’s name and logo. We want to thank each of them for their support of
this book. Please note, however, 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 enjoy this token of our appreciation for your membership and that
you will find it useful in your own creative cooking The Costco Way.
