As I mentioned on Friday, I’ve got a dinner invitation of sorts for you tonight.
Technology permitting, I’ll be part of a small group of food writers tweeting while eating what promises to be a pretty special dinner. Tonight, this year’s five James Beard nominees for Best Chef Northwest will come together at Crush to strut their stuff:
- Maria Hines of Tilth
- Joseba Jiménez de Jiménez of Harvest Vine and Txori, and maker of that Rocky Mountain oyster sorbet we discussed
- Ethan Stowell of Union, Tavolata, How to Cook a Wolf, and Anchovies & Olives
- Jason Wilson of Crush
- Cathy Whims of Nostrana (in Portland)
I’ll be there, utensils in hand and hands on the keyboard, describing all of the dishes and the overall experience (while trying not to spill stuff on the laptop). You can follow along, adding your commentary, by simply going to the James Beard Best Chefs Dinner & Tweetup site at Event Chatter.
