For me, food and wine is a
true sensory experience. My husband & I love to cook for our friends and we are always
testing out new recipes on them. With the addition of wine, food can take on a whole
new dimension. I have immersed myself, as much as my day job allows, into wine.
Specifically wine from the Pacific Northwest.
As a Washington State native, I grew up with the fresh seafood and produce native to the
area. I look forward to local strawberries in the spring & sweet corn in late summer.
As well as fresh caught Dungeness Crab out of Puget Sound and the flavorful beef produced
by local farmers. The Northwest
offers an abundance of wonderful ingredients to work with.
This site is dedicated to the Food & Wine of the Pacific Northwest. Please join me as I
explore all it has to offer!

Our favorite vacation spot is
in the Carribean. It is a 13 square mile island,
half of which is French, the other half Dutch. We prefer the French side of the island
mainly for the FOOD. We love the bechamel, escargot, foie gras, lobster thermador ect. However,
one of our absolute favorite meals is the pizza. Yes folks, French style pizza. Thin flatbread
crust, cured meats, sharp cheese and a sunny side up egg in the middle. Whoa! What did you say?
You had me until you said egg? On a pizza? That's right, it's the best. Pulling a slice of of pizza
out and you get that little bit of yolk with it....heaven.
We attempted to recreate our little bit of Europe tonight. We used a basic baking soda flatbread
recipe, added sliced mozzarella, salami, home pickled onions, parmesan cheese on top. Popped
it in the oven for about 10 min, pulled it out briefly to crack an egg right in the middle, back
in the over for another 5 min. We were pretty pleased with the results.
