A three day event celebrating the Inland Northwest Culinary Scene?! That’s my love language. It all starts on Thursday, July 11th at Center Place Event Center with the SEAFOOD BASH. A luxurious celebration of fresh fish, shellfish and all things seafood! Last year the seafood boil with crab, corn, potatoes, and sausage stole the show along with the ahi stack from Anthony’s. We can’t wait to see what these talented, innovative chefs come up with this year.
Friday, July 12 from 6-9 pm, enjoy a special ‘Fire & Smoke’ themed evening featuring a BBQ extravaganza, with live cultural entertainment by The Coeur d’Alene Tribe, sponsored by Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort.
Try the various food pairings with craft beers along with wine and cocktail pairings.
Saturday is an all day affair beginning with the Grand Tasting and Stage Demos from 1-4pm, where attendees can sample from food purveyors, wineries, breweries, distilleries.
New this year… Spokesman-Review Northwest Passages Main Stage: Programming is focused on women in the culinary industry.
