A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

Sponsored giveaway: Savor Food tour at Pike Place Market

IMG_2158.JPG

One sunny Saturday morning, we met our group at the Market Theatre to begin our Savor Food tour of Pike Place Market. Although I have been to Pike Place Market numerous times before, I was excited to see what new things I might learn about the market and what new foods I might try. Our tour commenced with a little history of the market and then onto our first stop was Daily Dozen. There is nothing quite like a hot, fresh donut smothered in cinnamon and sugar to get your day off to a good start.

After our donuts, we headed to Market Spice to sample some delicious alder smoked salt, the infamous Pike Place Fish Market for smoked salmon, Pike Place Chowder for chowder and bisque, Chukkar Cherries for cherries and cherry salsa, Beecher's for cheese and crackers, Frank's Produce for donut peaches and cherries, Piroshky Piroshky for sweet and savory piroshky and then Etta's for crab cakes. Amazingly enough, I had never been to Piroshky Piroshky, Market Spice nor Etta's before.

Our tour guide was good natured, fun and witty and the two hours seemed to fly by. We dutifully followed the pink umbrella around a bustling market and thoroughly enjoyed the delicious sampling of foods we were able to try. I learned so many new things that day, from how Rachel the Pig saved the market to how Frank's Produce is in its fourth generation of Franks to how another vendor saved Piroshky Piroshky from ruin. We heard stories of community, resilience and left with a feeling of hometown proud.
