Culinary icons Tom Douglas, Holly Smith, Ethan Stowell, John Sundstrom, and Sabrina Tinsley join our very own circus chef, Erik Carlson to present a sumptuous fall menu. Each of these masterfully crafted courses are to be expertly paired with delicious wine selections.

And it doesn’t stop there!

Ann Wilson
Ariana Lallone
Frank Ferrante
Les Petits Freres
Martha Davis

High 5!

Teatro ZinZanni: One of Seattle’s Premier AttractionsSeattle Attractions Logo

Seattle is a fabulous city.  You know it.  We know it.  We’re pretty certain the whole world knows it.

To ensure people keep coming to visit our city and to make sure locals know about all it has to offer, is what Puget Sound Attractions Council (PSAC) is all about. Founded in 1984, the PSAC is an association of 30 of Seattle’s Premier Attractions. From museums to wildlife, sightseeing to live performances – Western Washington has attractions to excite and intrigue everyone.

To promote awareness of the sheer fabulous-ness that is Seattle, we  are taking part in the High 5! Seattle Attractions Contest.  But what is this High 5! contest and how do I take part?  Great questions:

High 5! Seattle Attractions Contest: If you visit 5 of Seattle’s Premier Attractions before October 31, 2012, you’ll be entered to win one grand prize from 22 attractions (including an evening for 2 to Teatro ZinZanni)! You can earn additional entries by sharing a photo while enjoying the attractions either to the Seattle Attractions facebook or tweet the picture using #High5Seattle

And the Winner Is…

Do you know this man?

This dashing gent in a chef coat is Erik Carlson, the culinary wizard here at the tent. This is also his game face.  He has been masterfully crafting our menus, ensuring that our fantastic feasts are a feat of the imagination for over a year.

Last weekend at The Bite of Seattle, Chef Erik participated in a battle of whisks, a.k. the Bite Cook Off!   He went head-to-head (spatula-to-spatula?) against Stumbling Goat Bistro’s chef Joshua Theilen.

This was the first ever Bite Cook Off!, an event which tests a chef’s quick wit and culinary prowess.  This year also featured guest host Thierry Rautureau from Chef In The Hat (we are in love with him).  Contestants are competing for a $200 donation to the charity of their choice and the coveted title of “Bite Cooks Master!”.  During this challenge the chefs are given a box filled with three mystery ingredients to merge into a delicious dish.  Simple right?

Wrong.  Chefs have just 30 minutes to prepare this epic feast.  30 minutes!!!   From learning the ingredients to hands-up you’re finished meal just 30 minutes!  This is just like the series Chopped!  So stressful.

The competition was fierce, friendly, and a heapin’ helpin’ of fun.  The judges, selected from the audience, had a big decision on their plates.  After some intense deliberation, the judges crowned Chef Erik “Bite Cooks Master!” for his delectable dish.  Huzzah!

If you happen to visit Stumbling Goat Bistro (which is simply scrumptious with delightful cocktails to boot) or see Chef Erik under the big top (where the cuisine is always fabulous, thanks to Chef Erik and his stellar team), congratulate them both on a job well done!

To Wine World, With Love

Last Wednesday when the tent was dark, we put on our fancy shoes, gilded sombreros, and snappiest dresses and ventured out to Wine World¡Caliente! performers Christine Deaver, “Big Mike” Geier, Ling Rui, and Ann Bernard spent the evening with our fabulous Golden Tassel Club Members and the Wine World Explorer’s Club.  Delicious wine was consumed, jokes were told, and a delightful evening was had by all in attendance.

Late Night ESPECTACULAR

THIS Saturday we are having a sexy late night Cinco de Mayo show.  Did we say show?

What we meant was…

LATE NIGHT ESPECTACULAR!!!

This party features oodles of gratuitously sexy performances,  luchadores clashing in a battle royale,  fantastic cerveza, and dancing!  This spectacle of spectacular is hosted by a trifecta of tremendous talent: the Mexican Elvis El Vez (Robert Lopez), the tallest caballero this side of the border “Big Mike” Geier, and Mexican blonde bombshell Christine Deaver.  See these three lo-co hosts as you’ve never seen them before: late at night and uncensored!

Joining in the saucy mayhem:

Late night shows are crazy popular and lines to enter can get long close to show time.  If you are attending, be muy inteligente and arrive here right before 11 PM.  Don’t forget your ID, you must be 21 or older to witness the ESPECTACULAR!
