Spirit tasting through the state.
Now in its 6th year, PROOF — The Washington Distillers Festival, will return for a one-of-its-kind tasting event on Saturday, July 7th. The event is happening for the fourth year in Seattle’s Fremont Studios.
I had just finished reading Cork Dork and was feeling confident in my ability to taste wine like a pro last week when we visited Claret Wine Bar in Wallingford, the newest member of the Purple Cafe and Thackeray restaurant family. I had no reason to feel confident – I love wine and know which wines I like and which I don’t (Sorry white wine, you’ll never be a red. You’re dead to me), but I’m no expert.
While I’ve had plenty of good PNW-inspired fare in Seattle, including top-notch wine offerings, my recent dinner at Agrodolce was really special. From the outstanding entree options to the welcoming and knowledgeable staff and the exquisite wine, Agrodolce stands out.
It officially feels like summer has hit the PNW and what better way to celebrate than happy hour on a patio? Answer: Two for one happy hour on the patio at Mama’s Cantina in Belltown.
If there’s one thing I love more than the seemingly endless options of locally crafted beer in the PNW, it’s the access I have to brunch food that gives me reason to get up on the weekend. When I heard that Head Brewer Adam Frantz worked with the Belltown Brewing kitchen team to sneak beer into every item on their weekend brunch menu, I knew I had check it out for myself.
Chef Tommy McDonald, Seattle native and author of vegan cookbook Field Roast: 101 Artisan Vegan Meat Recipes to Cook, Share, and Savor shares 100 delicious, satisfying vegan recipes. McDonald is the head chef at Field Roast (founded in 1997 in Seattle), an artisan vegan grain meat and cheese company.
