About This Book
Time ;ies … even when we’re in the kitchen! Welcome to the tenth annual book in our The Costco Way cookbook series. In keeping with our
tradition, this book is to be handed out to members on a ;rst-come, ;rst-served basis the weekend after Thanksgiving as a token of our appreciation.
We have several special features in A Decade of Cooking The Costco Way:
• We have been asking readers of our monthly magazine, The Costco
Connection, to let us know which were their favorite recipes from past
editions. These are showcased in a section beginning on page 10.
• We also asked our fabulous food suppliers to choose their favorite recipes
from among the many they have provided through the years. These have
been noted with a special “Supplier Favorite” logo throughout the book.
• And we have specially designated in our Supplier Listing at the back of the
book those suppliers who have been participating in the cookbooks from
the first book in the series, Entertaining The Costco Way, published in 2002.
Once again you will find our popular “Chef’s Choice” chapter with recipes
developed by some 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
with this year’s benchmark edition.
Please note that every recipe has been identified with the supplier’s name
and logo. We want to thank each of these suppliers for their support of this
book. (Note additionally that some branded products may not be sold in your
part of the country. In such cases you should substitute a similar product.)
As of this November, we will have distributed just under 15 million The Costco
Way cookbooks, containing more than 2,500 recipes. I hope you enjoy this
year’s celebration of recipes past, even as you find new joys here for your
