Washington is well-known for its delicious foodie events like the 3rd annual Taste of Tulalip, a 2-day award-winning food and wine weekend hosted by Tulalip Resort & Casino.

Top Chef alum and new co-host to ABC TV’s “Chew”, Carla Hall will be on hand for a cooking demo. The “Thirsty Girl” Leslie Sbrocco will be emceeing all this deliciousness, and I heard that there may be a culinary throw down going on as well at the Rock and Roll Cooking Challenge!

The Taste of Tulalip takes places Friday, November 11th and Saturday, November 12th at Tulalip Resort & Casino – tickets are available through their website and are going fast!

Garden-to-Glass: Zen Garden Cocktail

Earlier this summer, I made a libatious garden-to-glass Zen Garden cocktail Envy cocktail that combined organic vodka, muddled honeydew melon, fresh cilantro and a bit of green Tabasco. This week I return to the garden-to-glass theme with this cocktail.

On Kathy Casey’s Liquid Kitchen™, I make a Zen Garden cocktail! Refreshing and crisp, this cocktail features muddled celery, cucumber and lemongrass rounding out the botanical flavor of gin and sweetness of agave nectar. Fresh yuzu juice and sake make a wonderful far east addition to this cocktail.

Cheers! -Kathy
