Hey kids! Those Voracious types at Seattle Weekly are putting on a show at the Paramount Theatre April 14. They’re calling it the inaugural Voracious Tasting and Food Awards. The food-focused festivities begin at 7 p.m. with plenty of schmoozing (chefs from 40 restaurants are providing the “tasting”) and boozing (with a lineup of cocktail movers and shakers doing their duty at the open bar).
In addition to the presentation of food awards for innovation, sustainability and for livin’ la vita e Pellegrini, they’re promising an Iron Chef-style showdown pitting a pair of International Culinary School students from the Art Institute of Seattle against a couple of pros. Spinasse’s Jason Stratton and culinary scholar Sara Harvey will take on Emmer & Rye’s Seth Caswell and Joshua Schimmel-Bristow.
As the late Angelo Pellegrini might say: “Food? Wine? I’ll drink to that!”
