January 14th Event: The Washington State Wine Awards

2013





The Washington State Wine Awards (formerly known as Washington Wine Restaurant Awards), established in 2002, recognizes industry leaders that exhibit strong support of Washington wines and high professional standards in wine service.

After 10 years of honoring restaurants, this year’s ceremony will shine a spotlight on nominees and winners from the retail, tourism, distributor and wholesaler sectors, as well. An estimated 500 attendees will include wine buyers, sommeliers and influential tourism players, among others. In addition to the short awards ceremony, attendees will have the opportunity to engage with several dozen Washington State wineries
and taste their wines.

The Washington State Restaurant, Retailer and Tourism Champions of the Year are the most prestigious awards, while the Washington State Wine Grand Award seeks to commend those individuals and organizations that designate menu and wine list space for Washington wines and provide continual promotion, sales and education of Washington wines. Other awards honor special categories such as Sommelier of the Year, Best Wine Event featuring Washington Wine, and the Walter Clore Honorarium which is given to an individual who has demonstrated dedication to the advancement of the Washington wine industry. Judges evaluate restaurants, individuals and organizations on a variety of criteria, including wine list, service and staffing, promotions and overall wine philosophy.

You must RSVP in advance if you wish to attend this event.

The Awards Ceremony and Tasting will be held Monday, January 14th, 2013.
McCaw Hall at Seattle Center
Seattle, Washington
3:00PM-7:00PM

This event is new to me. The last time I mentioned personal Seattle restaurant experiences, was after Taste Washington Seattle 2012, "What to do in Seattle after Taste Washington!" I look forward to learning more about the Washington State Wine Awards.

Cheers!

My Favorite Recipe | Flourless Chocolate Torte

Satisfying those chocolate cravings. My Instagram followers have seen me post photos ( @wild4wawine ) of my favorite dessert for over a year. Possibly, I've posted the original recipe to Instagram. If you ask, I usually do. After success and failures, I've learned that this dessert does not always deliver desired results. With some effort, I've figured out why, and the remedy. Yes, I've been gently tweaking the recipe. Adjusting ingredients. Modifying and streamlining the process. With mixed results. Confiding with my wife, she gave me a tip that finally nailed this recipe down. I'm happy to share this recipe with modifications. It's truly a lovely dessert. My favorite. Enjoy responsibly. Just out of the oven flourless chocolate torte. Recipe: Flourless Chocolate Torte An easy recipe to follow. You will need an oven, mixer, spring form pan and a double boiler. While you can eat this torte warm, I prefer to let it cool down and refrigerate it

Chateau St. Michelle, Indian Wells, 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon

Good Wine, Happy Camper Fall is settling on us quite rapidly. Today, our sunny afternoon was framed by ominous dark clouds lurking on the horizon north of us. It‘s unsettling how quickly the cool weather descends on SE Washington. That touch of autumn sunshine put me in the mood for grilling steaks tonight. I‘ll embrace the sun when I can. But, what good is steak without wine? On my way home, I grabbed a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. On a whim, I bought a wine I would not usually purchase; it was priced on sale for less that $15. My expectations were not high for the wine, I was just hoping for something palatable. Chateau St. Michelle Chateau St. Michelle, is a Washington winery - an Eastern and Western Washington winery. The St. Michelle winery and tasting room is located in Woodinville, Washington, just across lake Washington from Seattle. However, this wine is made in Patterson, Washington, from Columbia Valley grapes (Indian Wells series) at their attractive Columbia Crest

The Ministry of Time/El Ministerio Del Tiempo History is under threat. Someone is attempting to alter the past. In response, a secret government organization is working to protect the sanctity of time. This group is the Ministry of Time. Agents of the ministry, are able to travel to different times and places via a deep well of stairs located in Madrid, Spain. From these stairs, innumerable doorways branch off to different periods of the past. Agents are recruited from other time periods, they work diligently to protect the history of Spain. And we get to go along for the thrilling ride. I’m changing up things today by recommending my favorite Spanish TV series. I found it accidentally, now I'm hooked.

With a neglected minor in Spanish, I’m embarrassed to have forgotten so much vocabulary and
