I don’t mean to brag, but I’ve got friends in organic places. And by organic, I mean Pike Place Market in Seattle, Washington.
I might be a biased Seattle girl, but I really love the Seattle Bites Food Tour. The owners, Mark & Jan Marie, are my dear friends. This week I had the pleasure to making some cookies for them for a presentation they did for Visit Seattle. I can’t wait to show you the cookies they gave to the attendees but, first, let me brag some more about them and what they do…
I’ve been on the tour four times. Last time I got to meet James. You, too, can meet James at the information booth. He’s a fan of Seattle Bites as well and has the brochure to prove it.
When you introduce yourself, please tell him Deanna from The Old Hen B&B says hi. You might also like to tell him he made the blog. He’s the most photogenic James I’ve ever met, no?
Everybody who signs up for the tour gets this handy Seattle Bites bag and an ear piece that allows you to hear the tour host even when the fish guys are chanting and doin’ their thing – flingin’ fish, makin’ tourists laugh and stuff.
The tour hosts are so fun, informative and friendly. I’ve learned so much about Pike Place from them.
One day I even got to play photographer. I adore this picture of this very happy group member.
Cutie, baby Seattle’s Best Coffee? Why, yes, please! I also love that every time I’ve been on the tour the eats have been a little bit different. Seattle Bites also serves the biggest bites of any Seattle food tour.
You must. simply must go on this tour – even if you’re a local. You will never see the market in the same way again. I promise you. Why? Because you will become part of the market’s history and become friends with the shop owners.
Are you ready to see the cookies I made for Seattle Bites? I’m not sure if you are ready for this much cuteness. No really. I’m simply giddy – far more excited than I probably should be.
Yes, it’s a cookie. A cookie sandwich to be exact. Complete with lunchmeat, lettuce, tomato, mustard and mayo.
To celebrate Pike Place. To celebrate the name “sandwich cookies” taken far too literal. To celebrate the outstanding Seattle Bites Food Tours, my friends at Seattle Bites are giving away 4 tickets for their tour.
