3 Day Bite of Seattle

King Salmon on Mascarpone Grits

Imagine sampling seven different fine restaurants' creative culinary offerings for under ten dollars and knowing your dollars are going to feed the hungry. If you tour "The Alley," just one of many attractions at this weekend's Bite of Seattle at Seattle Center, you can do just that. It's Seattle's popular 3 day summer food and hospitality celebration featuring 50 restaurants and 30 tasty food products, celebrity chef cooking demonstrations, "Just a Bite" portions of chefs delights, confections, down home barbecue, foods from every culture, even ice cream, chocolate dipped strawberries and shave ice. From family restaurateurs to celebrity chefs, everyone will be dishing up good things to try. There are also beer and wine gardens, comedy and music performers to enjoy.

Just to tempt you with the type of fare Seattle has to offer, here's a Pacific Northwest classic I recently enjoyed, prepared Dahlia Lounge style. This is King Salmon on marscapone grits, amazingly delicious and my kind of comfort food. Dahlia will be dishing up Slow Smoked Pork Butt with Sweet Corn Chow Chow as their Bite offering in The Alley on Saturday. Bon appétit,

Oh, drool, slurp, yummy. This looks sooooo good I was tempted to lick my computer screen. Am looking forward to try some known and unknown Seattle treats very soon.

I'm right there with Bibi drooling and wanting to grab this right off my computer! Especially for the grits; I'll have to try them with marscapone sometime. I haven't even had breakfast yet and I'm thinking about dinner! Great photo, and what a fun 3-day food event!

Realmente apetitoso y con un buen precio. La próxima vez que vaya a Estados Unidos, tendré que pasar por Seattle.

Great shot (love those muted red-browns), and great to know this all goes to a good cause.

Wow, what a great idea! That's cool!

Thanks for the comments on my blog; yes, they did in fact toss cabers and have haggis for sale. :o)

Oh my, that king salmon on marscapone cheese grits looks so delicious.

The Bite of Seattle program resembles NYC's Restaurant Week where top restaurants offer prix fixe menus for $20.05 (for 2005), $20.06 (for 2006) . . . you get the idea. :-)
