No one really covers the desserts at Taste Washington, so this year I am! Because even a dessert geek gets amused at the idea of watching Tom Douglas make teeny tiny crab cakes. I was media this year, which also gave the benefit of VIP access. […]
I never thought I’d go into a charcuterie place and leave excited about dessert. Way back in January, Olympia Provisions pitched me to chat at the Winter Fancy Food Show. Thing was, I’d already been planning to go to Portland, their home turf, so I […]
