the buzz




Seattle, Washington

Seattle is a food lover’s paradise. Holding a sweet spot in the city’s culinary heart, the 100-year-old Pike Place Market is a popular destination for locals and tourists. The oldest continually operating public farmers’ market in the country, it pioneered the “meet-the-farmer” connection in 1907. From salmon to strawberries, halibut to haricot vert, Dungeness crab to clams, Pacific oysters to asparagus, and berries to bushels of greens, the bounty of local, seasonal foodstuffs here is breathtaking. The Emerald City is one of few places on earth where folks can name all five species of wild Pacific salmon -- and tell you their favorite. Seattle is homeport for the Alaska fishing fleet that fishes wild salmon, halibut and rockfish from icy North Pacific waters. And, yes, Seattle’s coffee really is that good – a double espresso is the best way to counter Seattle’s dreary, drizzly winter mornings. Baristas are everywhere, housed in everything from drive-up mobile vans to the ubiquitous storefronts of a certain national coffee empire.

About me:
I love food. Seriously LOVE it. I often myself eating one thing and already planning my next meal. I love how it brings people together and acts as a social glue or focal point. Food was love in my family growing up and I have found myself taking on the same attitude as I establish my own household. Not so good for the dieting though. :)

About me: I wasn't born in Seattle, but was raised here. Been on the poor side most of my life. I know what it is to stretch a dollar and pinch a penny. God has been good to me. -Steven
