Dinner at BOKA
Dinner started with our celebratory glass of champagne and proceeded with several small plates of fresh seafood prepared by Chef Angie Roberts who came out to say hello and share her passion for local, organic ingredients. BOKA also features an eclectic selection of wines from around the world, including many well known Northwest winemakers.
Taylor’s Farm Geoduck served sashimi style and crispy with lemon, olive oil and aioli. The staff impressed us with their extensive knowledge of Geoduck.
Salted caramel chocolate molten cake and strawberry shortcake with lemon shortbread. BOKA even packed a little strawberry shortcake to take home to the kids!
Dinner at Barking Frog – Woodinville Wine Country
Visiting the Barking Frog is like coming home. Since we hosted Mamacation there last November, we’ve had a special bond. Chef Bobby Moore and team do an extraordinary job of transporting you to wine country with dishes that pair perfectly with Woodinville wine country’s yummy wines.
Watermelon and heirloom tomato salad with fresh chevre, toasted pine nuts micro greens and 10 year aged balsamic.
Sea Scallops and Souse Vide Pork Belly over grilled corn risotto, smoked mushrooms, caramelized leeks and jalapeno.
A shot of espresso and chocolate mousse – ’nuff said.
