Event Alert: PROOF Washington, June 15

Guest Post by Juli Crompe.

While the name of this blog suggests wine content, William and I recently had a chat about the explosion of distilleries in Washington state (and the Northwest) and decided it was worth a bit of attention. With the first annual PROOF Washington scheduled for June 15th, this is the perfect time to introduce yourself to some of the new, hot local distilleries. And if you purchase before June 7th, early bird pricing is in effect, saving you $5 per ticket!

PROOF Washington will be held at The Foundry by Herban Feast (formerly known as Urban Enoteca), a hip, urban event space that will feature 40 distilleries and 12 local restaurants & food vendors sampling some delicious bites. Music will be spinning from KEXP's Greg Vandy & custom crafted cocktails will be shaken and stirred from expert local bartenders.

At PROOF, you'll also be able to meet the men & women responsible for these libations, and learn about grains, barrel aging, fermentation, the creation processes and blending.

One thing I really like about this event which is different than Taste Washington and other wine events is that there will be an on-site retail store where you can purchase anything you liked throughout the event and take it home! This seems to be a new trend with hard liquor events. Proceeds from the on-site sales benefit the Washington Distillers Guild.

Saturday, June 15, 2013
The Foundry by Herban Feast, 4130 1st Ave S, Seattle, WA 98134 (just south of the stadiums)
Evening Session: 6-9pm
Tickets: $40 through June 7th, $45 after
Tickets include a commemorative shot glass and 10 tasting tokens.

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

My Favorite Recipe | Flourless Chocolate Torte

Satisfying those chocolate cravings. My Instagram followers have seen me post photos ( @williampollardjr ) 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 refrigera

In response, a secret government organization is working to protect the sanctity of time. This group is the Ministry of Time.
