I had the most amazing dinner the other night, courtesy of my favorite foodie-in-crime, Bri. You’d think she was a celebrity, she is always doing something 500x cooler than I am doing at the same time. In reality, I think she just has a really cool job, and I frequently bribe her to let me come along as her plus one.
Most recently, we attended a four course ranch-to-table dinner in the private library dining room of the Pike Place Market hosted by the resident BB Ranch butcher shop. The library room is one of the huge windows on the second floor of the market, right above Rachel the pig, and the butcher shop is right across the street on the ground level. The dinner is amazingly crafted, beautiful plates of food featuring meticulously nurtured meats. It deserves every one of those adjectives, trust me.
William von Scheneidau, BB Ranch founder, and resident swarthy cowboy, hosts the evening and is the perfect mix of knowledgable farmer, fine food connoisseur, and genuinely nice guy. And by the end of the night you’re happy to throw back whatever home-brewed libation he offers and follow him anywhere, including straight into a meat locker where you may be left to die. (True, and almost unfortunate, story.)
If you’re interested in your very own BB Ranch dinner, here’s the info. I highly recommend. Hope you enjoy the photos from the night! And if you have any swanky events like this and you need a plus one, call me!!
