TONIGHT! Hunt, Gather, Cook: Finding the Forgotten Feast with Hank Shaw The Pacific Northwest has a rich bounty of flora and fauna to offer from land, sky, and sea. Foraging, gleaning, hunting, fishing, crabbing, clamming… not just for the hardcore outdoorsy-crowd anymore. Join us for an evening with Hank Shaw, author of Hunt, Gather, Cook: Finding the Forgotten Feast. Hank will share his adventures in the field and in the kitchen with a talk on wild foods and book signing. Special guest, Chef Robin Leventhal (formerly of Crave & Top Chef), will also be on hand, serving up some delicious appetizers inspired by Hunt, Gather, Cook. Kevin Cedergreen of Cedergreen Cellars, Cole Sisson of Hestia Cellars, Melissa Peterman of Elsom Cellars, and the fine folks from McCrea Cellars will be pouring some fantastic Washington wines.
Friday, July 29 Shenandoah Davis Growing up immersed in classical music, Shenandoah Davis creates heartbreaking, spine-tingling compositions which seamlessly combine the romantic piano swells of Debussy or Chopin with contemporary influences such as Owen Pallett, Joanna Newsom and Arthur Russell. An avid traveler and collaborator, she has toured the US, Japan, and Western Europe, worked with such ensembles as the Seattle Rock Orchestra and Portland Cello Project, and performed at some of North America’s largest music festivals (SXSW, Bumbershoot, Sasquatch) while garnering praise from fans and critics back home for her 2008 debut “We; Camera.”
