John Sundstrom presents at Central Library


Chef & Restauranteur John Sundstrom presents 'Thinking Outside the (Recipe) Box'


Friday, June 21, 2013


7:00 pm – 8:30 pm PDT


Central Library

Room Location

Level 1 - Microsoft Auditorium






Meet Johnathan Sundstrom, executive chef and owner of Seattle's Lark restaurant, and learn about his work with Jared Stoneberg to create the community-supported Lark cookbook through crowd-sourced funding.


Sundstrom and Stoneberg worked with an entirely local Pacific Northwest crew -- photographers, writers, designer and printer -- to publish both print and digital versions of the cookbook. Beautifully photographed and designed, "Lark: Cooking Against the Grain" represents an innovative self-publishing model that creates new ways for the home cook to experience print and digital content.

Sundstrom opened Lark, an artisan-focused restaurant, on Seattle's Capitol Hill in 2003. He was named “Best Chef Northwest” by the James Beard Foundation in 2007.
