Mindy and I made our way through the Bite of Seattle this past weekend in search of food and for me, a cooking demonstration by Chef Ethan Stowell and Chef Thierry Rautureau.
First we stopped at the Alley which had a few different restaurants offering a bite or two of some of their best dishes in order to benefit Food Lifeline (click)
Lots of great stuff to get the stomach rolling in the right direction. We walked around some more and stumbled our way through more food but I was here to see a cooking demonstration by Chef Stowell and Chef Rautureau.
We made our way to the stage and the producer Russ Nelson noticed I was taking a bunch of pictures so he asked us if we wanted a little tour of the stage.
One day I’ll be on this side of the stage but until then it’s time to watch a few masters demonstrate their skills.
In 20 minutes Chef Ethan Stowell with the assistance of the host of the show, Chef Rautureau, rocked a Roasted Halibut with Taggiasca Olive Puree, Roasted Fennel and Green Olive Vinaigrette. Sounds amazing right?
The only problem with this is that the health department in my state doesn’t allow them to actually serve the food to hungry onlookers. The bright side was that they handed out the recipe and now I’ll be able to try it out for myself!
Well, that was it for me at the Bite of Seattle….had to go to work!
