Taste of Tulalip - Are You Ready?

Had my first taste of "Cristal"
I mean, are you really ready?  Are you ready for a weekend filled with extraordinary culinary delights, celebrities of the food world, and live cooking challenges?  All of this along with award winning wines from not only Washington, but California and Italy?  If you are then make sure you are in attendance at the Taste of Tulalip November 11th & 12th.

The weekend kicks off with a tasting reception, celebration dinner and VIP afterparty at the Oasis pool on Friday night. Saturday includes a seminar and demo with celebrity chef Carla Hall, a Private Magnum Tasting hosted by star chef Cathy Kasey and Tulalip Resort sommelier Tommy Thompson and then capped off with the Grand Taste from 2:30-6:30.

The preview tweet up I attended last week offered a sampling of what to expect at the event.  Believe me, the Tulalip Resort has spared no expense.  At the preview, sommelier Tommy Thompson poured some exclusive wines including 2002 Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne, 2008 Domaine Leflaive Batard Montrachet Burgundy, 2006 Leonetti Reserve Red Blend and ZD Abacus Cabernet Sauvignon XII.  I was also able to taste a some tidbits of the amazing food that will be at this event.  I am constantly blown away by the culinary talent of the chefs at the Tulalip Resort.  Get your tickets now so that you can share in this food and wine extravaganza!
