Savor Seattle Food Tours
Recently I had the chance to go on the widely talked about Savor Seattle Food Tour through Pike Place Market. Angela Shen, the savvy founder of Savor Seattle is an absolute foodie and so passionate about the culture and cuisines of Seattle. Her motto is eat. drink. be inspired. and that was exactly what I did!
We started the guided tour in the morning at Pike Place Market with fresh coffee and piping hot mini doughnuts, watched the flying fish and tasted the most amazing smoked salmon, learned about local spices and the history of the market. We went on to try many other delectable creations including Chukar cherries, handmade Beecher’s cheese, Chef Tom Douglas’ famous coconut cream pie and local wines at The Tasting Room, tucked away in Post Alley on a cobblestone street. What an experience! I have grown up in Seattle and learned more about Pike Place Market than I ever knew before.
Angela offers public and private tours, both at a reasonable price, perfect for weddings guests or your bridal party to showcase Seattle’s history and fine foods. Go hungry!
