Food Lovers Weekend

SUMMER SIZZLES- A THREE DAY EVENT

Sign up now for the Food Lovers Weekend— Summer Sizzles- July 27 to 29, 2018

Summer is the season of abundance. We look forward to the bounty of local farms- sun-ripened tomatoes, heaps of sweet and hot peppers in every color, juicy berries bursting with sweetness, and bouquets of fragrant, fresh herbs. Summer is also the season for having fun-  slurping down ice cream cones and other frozen desserts, lounging with cool Tiki bar cocktails and a platter of pupus, enjoying picnics on the grass or on a beach towel on the sand.   This edition of Food Lovers Weekend may include everything from Island foods (think: Hawaiian poke and Jamaican jerk!), to Korean BBQ, to Thai and Filipino foods, to Spanish Paella chock-full of seafood.  Here’s the plan: we’ll indulge in everything that fits our mood in Summer when it Sizzles!

Each day is packed with delicious, informative culinary fun: back to back demos, substantial tastes of everything plus exciting beverage pairings and loads of super cool stuff to make and take.  

Our Food Lovers Weekends will be held at James Beard Award Winner Tom Douglas’ cooking school, Hot Stove Society. Sessions include cooking demonstrations by our talented Tom Douglas Restaurants Chef Team and special guests plus wine tastings and hands-on cooking technique classes.

Hot Stove Society is located inside downtown’s stylish Hotel Ändra on 4th and Virgina. In addition to being in the center of our restaurant campus, it is also a great starting point for walks to the Pike Place Market, Seattle Art Museum, and several beautiful downtown neighborhoods. Your visit to Seattle will truly be enhanced by Hotel Ändra’s swanky urban accommodations. Within the “Food Lovers Weekend” registration confirmation, you will find a link for discounted room rates that we’re offering all participants.

No matter the season, if you are a food lover and want to savor the culinary mecca of the Pacific Northwest in a surprising, enlightening and delightful way, we have the perfect weekend for you!

Each Food Lovers Weekend costs $995 per person and includes all food, wine and fees for the scheduled events of that weekend. Travel and hotel accommodations are not included. Discounted rates with hotel partner, Hotel Ändra, are available for those who are interested.
