Culinary Travels – Northwest Gems
It’s been awhile since I’ve been back to the Pacific Northwest, and after this trip I was wondering what the heck took me so long. Beautiful and delicious, this is a great part of the country. In Oregon, I had the good fortune of sampling the wines of King Estate, some of the finest in the state. From Pinot Noir to Pinot Gris, the wines of King Estate are true expressions of terroir. Up in Washington State, my focus turns to pears. The best pears in the world come from this part of the country, and I’ll take you inside the harvest, and give you some ideas for creating culinary classics with these Northwest beauties. Pinot and Pears-quite the combination!
