  1. Fresh foraged mushrooms. Apples. Local shellfish. Locally roasted coffee. Local dairy
    (milk, cream, butter and cheese are all excellent locally).

    1. I have lived my entire life in the PNW and the one thing that stands out is seafood, specifically salmon. Find yourself a nice piece of salmon and simply roast it with salt, pepper, a touch of lemon, and a couple pats of butter. Serve it up with some roasted potatoes and a green salad. It is the PNW on a plate.

      1. Wild salmon, definitely, with potatoes and asparagus, in season. blueberries or apples.

        1. Seafood: salmon or steelhead, geoduck, mussel
          Produce: sweet yellow onion, potato, wild berries, wild mushroom, apples
          Beverage: artisan coffees, wine - syrah, riesling, semillon

          1. Wild King salmon (white or regular - Tim's Seafood - Kirkland) and fresh basil, peaches, cucumbers, tomatoes, nectarines, blueberries. Get all the produce mentioned very soon since fall is upon us. Squash and fresh apples are on their way!
