*I’ve had several people ask what Pacific Northwest food is, and I’ve stumbled over my answer a few times. But, after doing a bit of thinking and narrowing it down, here’s my answer…
The Pacific Northwest includes Oregon, Washington, Alaska, British Columbia, and Idaho. These areas have amazingly fertile and diverse soil from moist weather, volcanic soil, forests, and valleys. The Pacific Northwest is known for production of grapes for wine, Walla Walla onions, mushrooms and truffles, stone fruits, berries, apples, pears, and lentils. The PNW is a leader in sustainable farming and in eating locally produced food. The Pacific Ocean also offers many different types seafood such as cod, crab, salmon, and halibut.
PNW foods are fresh, locally grown foods and herbs from fish to berries, from onions to hazelnuts. Most of the dishes are simply made letting the flavors and the freshness be the focus.
