Chocolate, Wine and all that Jazz… and ribs!

Last night was the annual Chocolate, Wine and all that Jazz event at Boehm’s Candies. This annual Issaquah foodie event benefits the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce.

Participating restaurants were; Agave, Filo’s [replacing the Field of Champions Sports Bar, check it out!], Tutta Bella, Qdoba, The Melting Pot, Extreme Pizza, Cascade Garden, Gemini Fish, My Chef Lynn, Fall City Roadhouse, University House [a standout again this year with their grilled ahi tuna and Mongolian beef “street tacos”] and of course Boehm’s Candies, the host.

Participating  wineries were;  Passion Vineyards, Twin Cedars, Wildridge, Airfield Estates, Michael Florentino, Cedar River Cellars, Redmond Ridge, Tempest Sol, Rogue Brewhouse, Pandora Cellars [I bought two bottles of their awesome reds. They sold out of the Tempest Sol “Shadow” which was my first choice.] All of the wines were very good, as was the food.

This year there was nearly unlimited food and unlimited tastings from the wineries. Which makes the $40 entrance fee an incredible bargain! Mark it on you calendar for next year!

And because I didn’t get enough great food last night our  resident Grillmaster Jordan roasted up a batch of Costco ribs for BBQ Friday. God I love this job!
