With 2015 well underway, it’s time to start planning for things to come! The best way to plan for the future is to look to the past. So, let’s take a quick look back at some of the event highlights from 2014 and start saving some dates for 2015.
Seattle Wine and Food Experience
One of the great things about this event is that it is continually evolving. While everything we loved about it last year will still be there – a VIP option (always worth it!), Washington wines, beers, and ciders served alongside amazing bites from local restaurants – there will be a new event the night before the big day!
On Saturday, February 6, at 6:00 p.m. Seattle magazine hosts POP! Bubbles & Seafood – the new kickoff event for the Seattle Wine and Food Experience. Bubbles will be present in the form of sparkling wine, cider and beer. Of course, this is a wine AND food event, so also featured will be
the Pacific Northwest’s bounty of seafood including salmon, clams, oysters and shrimp prepared by Seattle’s best restaurants. They had me at bubbles. Seriously. I’m so excited about this event, I already bought tickets in December!
Taste WA Seminars
If you’ve ever wanted to delve deeper into Washington wine, the seminars at Taste Washington are a great way to do it. The only drawback is that it’s not possible to attend all six offerings. Three seminars are offered on Saturday, March 28th and three are offered on Sunday, March 29th. All seminars take place from 10:30am to 12:00pm. Choose wisely!
We previously wrote about our anticipation for the International Food Bloggers Conference (IFBC) and keynote speakers, Karen Page and Andrew Dornenberg. The conference was a weekend filled with networking and fantastic sessions including wine and food pairing. If you share our love of food and other delectable delights, perhaps you’ve considered blogging about such things. If so, the IFBC is a great resource. We are very lucky that it will be in Seattle again in 2015 from September 18th to 20th.
Lamb Jam Seattle
I not only attend a lot of events, I work a lot of events. This is one of those events I “work” at. The crowd attending this event is devoted to food and wine. The chefs who compete at this event are seriously creative. The wine at this event pours on and on! It is serious fun. Typically held in the fall, this is an event to look out for.
Uncorked Holiday Bazaar
Held at the Factory Luxe in the old Rainier Brewery building, the crowd here was on the prowl for holiday wines and gifts. There was also a food truck outside serving up Indian food, the perfect fare for a chilly day. This was a lively event in a nice, intimate space with just the right amount of people. If Seattle Uncorked offers this event again next year, don’t miss it!
