Nibbles & Networking at Foodportunity Seattle

Last night I had the pleasure of being back in Seattle again to nibble and network at Foodportunity Seattle, held at Tom Douglas Restaurants Palace Kitchen.


This is the third Foodportunity I’ve been to inside a year and find the networking invaluable and the nibbles nom nom nom nom nom. I lost my date Libby Tucker, CEO of Beer2Buds, for about an hour (she’s particularly excellent at networking) and found myself engaged in numerous conversations with the Washington Beef Council, Whole Foods, chefs, public relation professionals, restaurateurs, food bloggers and foodies.

Keren Brown, the organizer of Foodportunity, somehow seems to attract a hip, diverse and professional crowd to these events… and the “foodie speed-dating” had a disproportionate ratio of pretty women to men (this was also observed at Foodportunity PDX last September and is anticipated to occur again in Portland March 7th).

The nibbles were deliciously nom-y! I especially enjoyed the chicken pate quenelles and Cathy Whims’ (Nostrana in Portland) dessert offering. I’m curious to see what the final commentary reveals as to favorites from the Chef’s offerings!

If you weren’t able to make Foodportunity PDX last fall, nor last night’s Foodportunity SEA, tickets ($20 pp) are on sale for Foodportunity PDX at the Heathman Hotel in Portland March 7th. I guarantee a night of great food related networking – and because I’m deeply passionate that Portland has the hottest culinary scene in the world – will also guarantee a stellar night of nibbling.
