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!

St. Martin is known as the "Gastronomic Capital of the World". Whether you are looking for ribs from
a beach bar, lobster thermador from a fancy french restaurant or whatever your stomach desires,
you can find it there...Read More
