Tacoma Aroma Flavor is my passion project...to create a series of cookbook/restaurant guides that feature local chefs and mixologists who embrace a farm-to-fork philosophy. "Tacoma Aroma: Savor the Flavor" highlights South Puget Sound communities and donates 25.3% of the profits to nonprofits in the 253 area code! This board documents my process from concept to cookbook. Learn more at TacomaAromaFlavor.com. Thanks for following! Cheers, Kris

Our first photo session for the Tacoma Aroma cookbook/restaurant guide was at pimientabistro.com, located where the boundaries between NE Tacoma and Federal Way blur. Known for its fusion of European cuisine with Latin American flare, for monthly tapas nights, and for being tucked in behind a Brown Bear Car Wash, Pimienta lends truth to TNT Food Journalist Sue Kidd’s assertion that “…strip malls hold the region’s dining gems.” Delicious! #galleryofdeliciousness #pnwfood #TacomaAromaFlavor Strip Mall, Federal Way, European Cuisine, Restaurant Guide, Beet Salad, Prawn, Scallops, Car Wash, Couscous
