Wander over to The Wandering Cafe

September 27th, 2011 · No Comments

While we’re on the subject of  The Wandering Cafe, where you can pick up lollipops from This Charming Candy and empanadas from Pampeana on Monday evenings, we should let you know that the seven-year-old catering company is giving you another reason to stop by its Maple Leaf location at 7533 Lake City Way.

This month, The Wandering Cafe has been staying closer to home by swinging its doors open to the public for its Chef’s Dinners every Wednesday. They’ve been such a hit, this week’s Singapore Crab Feast sold out three weeks ago, which gives owner Kristine Pottle reason to have yet another Chef’s Dinner this Thursday, Sept. 29.

“We always have a great time,” Pottle says. “A lot of the time, the people don’t know each other, so we start the night off with cocktails and hors d’oeurves.”

From the website:

As some may know by now, we have a terrific new gal in our kitchen. chef heather immoor can not only cook and bake up a storm but is also our very own lady butcher. we are hoping to butcher a lamb this month and a pig next month. watch the site for updates on fresh cuts available and dinners featuring these products.

this month will be one of the better harvest seasons our area has had, so we want to kick off our NEW chef’s table dinners by celebrating what we have available right here in the pacific northwest. each dinner will have multiple courses and wine pairings available. as always you are welcome to bring your own or sign up for our selections for the evening. we’re proud to source as many ingredients as possible from local farmers, who will be featured each week as their products become available. for us this is not a trend, it is a way of life we hope to share with our guests. please watch for updates on the menus as they develop with our friends at the markets. feel free to contact kristine pottle or heather immoor with any questions, suggestions or to book your spot.

Pottle expects to have two more Chef’s Dinners next month, so keep an eye on The Wandering Cafe calendar for updates on upcoming events. Or make a reservation for Thursday’s Singapore Crab Feast by calling  (206) 367-3676 or emailing or
