I had lunch the other day with a couple of Seattle’s most awesome wine people at Tilikum Place Café.  What do you do when there’s no Italian wine to drink?  You order a lovely little Sancerre, like this tart little number from Philippe Raimbault.  Steely, aromatic and
delicious- this was the perfect accompaniment to Chef Ba Culbert’s eclectic and delicious food.

We tried the soup of the day- a lovely little vegetable and ham stock, fresh and restorative. The chicken salad- a plate of roast chicken, potatoes, boiled eggs and the best aioli ever, was also a hearty and delectable option.  Lunch is clearly not an afterthought here- it’s the main event.

This woman can cook!

Dessert was also amazing- a slice of coconut and macadamia nut pie, and a lovely little panna cotta topped with blood orange segments.  Seasonal and delicious.

Every time I visit the Emerald City I am more convinced Seattle is an all-too-overlooked food and wine epicenter.  Exciting chefs, fun and interesting wines, and an unparalleled community of food and wine geeks abound…

About The Author

I love all things Italian: the beautiful country of Italia, the Italians themselves, the language, the food… and above all, I love Italian wine. The people I meet in my charmed life are fascinating, the wines are extraordinary. I needed a special place like this to write about them, and to remember them.
