If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I’m completely obsessed with steak tartare. I’m a complete savage when I go to restaurants. If they have this popular raw meat dish, I will be ordering it.
I started to realize that not all steak tartares are created equal. So I created a Trello board with a running list of all my favorites (I know, I’m a nerd). Rather than let that list go to waste, I thought I’d share with you where to find the best steak tartare in Seattle.
A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I took a road trip from Seattle to Idaho in order to check out the skiing at Schweitzer Mountain and Silver Mountain. Neither of us had driven across Washington state or gone to these resorts, so we were excited to spend a long weekend exploring a new area of the Pacific Northwest.
Here are pictures from our trip and my recommendations for the top things to eat, drink, and do while at Silver Mountain and Schweitzer Mountain Resorts.
There’s nothing I like more than an easy salmon recipe. Oh wait…there is. An easy salmon recipe paired with WINE.
If you remember from the interview with Farm Shed Wines I posted last week, I’ll be partnering with them to develop a few recipes that pair well with local Pacific Northwest wines.
This is the first recipe in our collaboration, perfect for Valentine’s Day (or any day really). I created a pan-seared salmon served with roasted orange, fennel, olives, and a pistachio-cacao nib gremolata. I also made recommendations of the type of wine that would go well with it. So if you’re ready to impress your hubby with a relatively healthy, light, flavorful, and easy salmon recipe, you’ve come to the right place!
If you’ve learned one thing from my Instagram stories, Walla Walla wine guide, and my Lake Chelan wineries round up, you know I love wine. That’s why I was so pumped to learn about Farm Shed Wines, a new wine retailer curating sustainable, small batch wines from the Pacific Northwest.
Since I love supporting local makers and artisans, we’re going to work together to develop recipes and wine pairings highlighting stories from their winemakers. But before we dive into each winery’s story, I wanted to share with you how Farm Shed Wines went from an idea to a full-fledged wine shop just outside of Tacoma, WA.
One of my favorite things about Seattle is just how much of a food city it is. There’s more than just a butt load of awesome, trendy restaurants. Its residents have a deep reverence for food, which results in a lot of non-eating foodie activities in the Seattle area.
To lay out just how serious Seattle takes food, let me highlight a few facts. It’s illegal not to compost in Seattle. Sustainable agriculture is everywhere: from individual urban gardens to community pea patches and restaurant farms. There are a ton of foodie events in Seattle every month. Farmer’s markets run strong here and the opportunities for people to get hands on with food are endless.
So if you are like me and have a deep love for food beyond what you put in your mouth, you need to read this article. I outline all the non-eating foodie activities in the Seattle area so you can increase your culinary knowledge and make more food memories along the way.
