New Friends at Pike Place Market

What can be better than sharing food with friends!

Top PotFriday morning Perry and I hit Top Pot doughnuts for some great doughnuts and coffee. I had a maple bar and a apple fritter. They were oh so good.

We headed over to the Weston where a group of IFBC attendees were meeting up. From there we split up into smaller groups and headed out for breakfast and to explore Seattle.

Pikes placeOur group of Perry P Perkins, Sarah Kirkconnell, Jana Seitzer, Alina Ferguson and myself headed towards Pike Place Market. We meandered through the market finding breakfast and coffee.

La Buona Tavola _Fotor_CollageAfter breakfast we did more wandering stopping here and there tasting the many different sweet pastries and savory treats. We stopped at The Truffle Cafe. We tasted some wonderful wines served to us by Rei Hanscomb. She was very knowledgeable and a great hostess. She kept us entertained and made us feel at home. This little shop has a great selection of wines as well as oils, salts, pastas and fresh black truffles. The Lemon Curd that we tasted with the Prosecco was incredible. A great little shop.

At this point Sarah and Alina left our little group due to other obligations. Jana Perry and I made our way down to Sur La Table. This is a cooks dream. So many cooking utensils and kitchen gadgets. It was a good thing I had a stroked budget. I don’t know how long we were there. I lost track of time.

I love sharing food and drink with people. It is why I do what I do. There is nothing better than spending time with friends and making new ones over good food and drink.

Thank you Sarah, Jana and Alina for keeping us company!
