Bob Donegan is an unassuming character. So much so that I didn’t realize I was speaking to the president of this longtime successful local company until we turned on our microphones and started gabbing. I asked him what he did for Ivar’s as we walked down the hall to the studio and he said, ‘Basically everything… I washed dishes at our Mukilteo store last night.” And so it went. One thing’s for sure, Donegan knows his stuff about Ivar’s and Ivar Haglund. Listen to the fun interview here:
A new Ivar’s cookbook is out, in honor of their 75th anniversary, and they’ve ‘reeled in’ a collection of recipes both old and new. Ivar’s Seafood Cookbook is packed with great trivia and memorabilia, too.
