Serious Salmon

Serious Salmon

Food figures big in Seattle, especially any variation of seafood. Fresh salmon is a huge inspiration for Seattle's creative culinary scene. These chefs from Campagne were preparing salmon in a kitchen faced by huge windows. Culinary theater viewable on the streets of Seattle! Campagne is one of the most celebrated French-style restaurants in the Pacific Northwest.

I adore salmon too. But take care of your rivers at all costs - you've probably heard that California's fishery has been declared a "disaster" with the collapse of the Chinook population in the Sacramento River.

I love peeking in the kitchens! And I have to agree with these two chefs, it is a very serious matter! Btw, I saw an episode of Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservation" which took place in and around Seattle. You guys are serious foodies! :)

Fascinating that we both posted something about Campagne in the past week. You chose to look into the kitchen and I looked under the table. -:)

I have sometimes wished I could be a mouse under the table and then a spider on the wall. What's that all about?

I did read, somewhere, online, that Salmon have disappeared and the so-called experts don't know why.

Is this going to put restaurants like this one out of business?

I have to secretly admit.. I was hoping to catch a glimps of you reflection in the window..

I wonder who is the person behind the Camera of Seattle Daily Photo?

Nice shot. Looks like salmon is pretty serious business.

The height of concentration in that image! Seafood figures hugely in Cape Town as well.
