Foodportunity 2012

Did you go to Foodportunity? If you didn’t know Foodportunity, is one of Seattle’s premier networking food events. At Foodportunity 2012 guests sampled bites from Tom Douglas Restaurants, Local 360, Il Corvo Pasta, The Metropolitan Market, Beecher’s and more. One of the best parts of this events is when you actually talk to some one the chefs from these fine establishments. A couple of my favorite dishes were Ilfornaio’s panino vegetariano and Metropolitan Market’s Mac and cheese. Here are some snap shots taken from the event.

    Oddfellows’ Second Annual Whoopie Pie Bake Off

    I love sweets. No correction I really really love sweets! I can survive on ice cream and german chocolate cake for weeks on end. So when I heard about Oddfellows Café + Bar Second Annual Whoopie Pie Bake Off I was all in. However before I get into the competition let me explain what a Whoopie Pie is for those who don’t know. A Whoopie Pie is made of two round mound-shaped pieces of baked cookie, pie or cake. In between these cakes is a sweet, creamy filling or frosting. Think of something close to a Oreo cookie or a ice cream sandwich.

    Bake off contestants were made up of professional and amateur bakers. Whoopie Pie entries were apprised by the crowd and a unique panel of official judges. Categories during the competition were: Home-Baker, Professional, and Gluten-Free/Vegan, with prizes for best classic and best non-traditional Whoopie Pies in each category. The prize for winning the Crowd Favorite Whoopie Pie will be an invitation to be a judge in the contest next year!
