Being a food blogger, I love attending local Seattle foodie events to taste and try what the community is eating and cooking. When I heard about an event dedicated to all things whiskey and chowder, it caught my interest. When I won tickets from edible seattle, I couldn't wait to go!
On Friday the 17th, the second annual Whiskey + Chowder festival took place at The Foundry at Herban Feast. Admission included tastings from distillers and local restaurants/caterers with their one-of-a-kind chowder. From all crab chowders, to seafood soups, to raw oysters, anything chowder-related was present for tasting.
The event was sponsored by metropolitan market, a local award winning grocery store serving the greater Seattle area since 1971 and edible seattle, a local magazine dedicate to all things seasonal, delicious, and devine! Check out edible seattle's recipe section for ideas on tonight's dinner!
What were my all-time favorite whiskey and chowder from the event?
Bainbridge Distiller's Yama Single Grain Japanese Whiskey. It had a strong start with a smooth, slightly spiced finish.
The Carlile's Room seductive cream of celery soup with mushrooms and mussels. The soup was thick enough to be a chowder and the mushroom and mussels gave the celery flavor its depth and layers.
