Restaurant Week

Seattle Restaurant Week is kicking off and running for the next 10 days! That's just one giant excuse to eat 10 great dinners!

This morning I was live at Joey Restaurant on South Lake Union (they also have locations in Bellevue and SouthCenter) cooking with Executive Chef Chris Mills. Whew ... that was a mouthful! Anyhoo ... he's off to New York to cook at the James Beard Foundation which is like the Carnegie Hall for chefs ...very cool honor. He showed me a few dishes that he's taking to NYC and showed us that you don't need to be afraid of making "fancy" food ... AND ... how to spice-up your 'regular' food. We made Ahi Tuna Tacos and very elegant (that's Chris' word for them ...lol) chicken corndogs.

He might have saved the best for last though ... Warm Banana Cake with coconut sauce .... DELISH!! I almost drank his entire bowl of passionfruit / vanilla bean sauce ... OMG it was so good!

Chris 'plating' the cake - I'm just mugging for the camera ...lol

'Doin our thang'

Watch out Chris ... I have mad chef skillz!

Mmmmmmmm :-)

My partner in crime

Check out Joey Restaurant at all 3 Seattle locations - Bellevue, SouthCenter, and South Lake Union.
Seattle Restaurant Week runs until October 28th at over 1 hundred restaurants in the area. You can get a 3 course meal for just 25 bucks and no passes or tickets are needs, but reservations are recommended. Happy Eating!!
