Texas BBQ Follow Up


As you may have heard, we had a really fabulous time with the Cafe Adrift, Boundary Bay Brewery, and Gothberg Farms Texas BBQ, beer and cheese pairing on June 6th.  The food (almost 100% local) was beyond incredible. 

One of the fun events we did was a beer/cheese pairing alchemy led by our much loved Julia Wayne from Edible Seattle.  Here are the results of the pairings we had the pleasure of sampling!

Hopefully most of you have seen the pictures on facebook, so I won't bore you with repeats.

Thanks Chef Martin

Chef Martin brings his culinary students to tour our small farm each year.  They do some really incredible local food events and catering.  I have had the pleasure of attending a few of them.  I so appreciate the opportunity to participate in the education of our future chefs and food lovers.

This article appeared in our local newspaper, the Skagit Valley Herald.  Imagine my surprise at finding this!  I love it!

When the last class came, they brought me one of these tarts.  I have never forgotten how much I loved it.  In fact, we had made attempts at re-creating it.  The fresh chevre makes for a fabulous dessert treat.

Thanks Chef Martin and your students!
