I'm off on a food adventure! For the next four days I'll be immersed in the world of organic apple, pear and cherry orchards, learning from industry experts in Washington State. I know. Right up my alley! As a pie maker and a canner with my own fruit trees, I could barely believe my eyes when the invitation came in my e-mail a couple months ago and I instantly said yes. I can't think of a better way to spend four bright autumn days! Especially because I get to enjoy this journey with five other Canadian women who also write about food. Inspiration station.
We'll start in Wenatchee, Washington, known as the Apple Capital of the World (probably even the universe), then we'll head to Seattle where the fun will include lots of dining out and a hands-on canning workshop with certified Master Food Preserver Brook Hurst Stephens. Seriously, if I could plan the perfect food getaway this is pretty much it!
So if I'm a little quiet on the blog this week it's because I'm nibbling and chatting my way through loads of organic fruit south of the border. No doubt I'll be scribbling down recipe ideas in my cute new notebook along the way. This is my first trip away from my two little kiddies and I'll miss them for sure. But hopefully I'll come home feeling inspired and ready to create new deliciousness in our own little family kitchen.
Off I go!
