I’m sore. The hills and 6.43 miles I walked yesterday won the debate with my butt and thighs. No matter, I managed to drag myself out of bed and to breakfast for one of the highlights of the conference — breakfast by Pastry Smart @PastrySmart! Was it delicious? Fantastic? Filling? A resounding yes to all 3. For Francophile, it was heaven, charcuterie, freshly made biscuits, yogurt and fruit (who cares? it was about the biscuits) and other deliciousness. I stopped at 3 biscuits filled with black forest ham! Oh my.
Let’s see this from a different angle. 🙂
The breakfast topic was “What Matters Most: Conversations on Humane, Organic & Sustainable Food Production Practices in a Millenial World” Choosing the food we eat is no longer about going out in the yard and selecting what’s available — it’s a trip to the market to pick from thousands of choices of good-looking food-type products. But most of us don’t consider where it comes from or, in the cast of protein sources, how it was raised. I enjoyed hearing about the Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC) and its certified program.
The special part of the evening was dinner. Urbanspoon Dine-Around Dinner ! Urbanspoon sponsored over a dozen tables at some of Seattle’s best restaurants. Quite a feat on a Saturday night at prime dinner time. Somehow I was grouped with a Gluten Free table but it didn’t matter.
The meal and wine pairings were delicious.
