We’ve been spending time in Walla Walla again. We took a side trip from the Pendleton Round-Up to do some wine tasting and checking on the grapes for Burnt Bridge Cellars. The melon carpaccio for my November class was inspired by the starter that we shared. We also had a pasta with sausage, oven dried tomatoes and pesto, and a clam pasta with fresh garden vegetables. Last year we had an amazing salad of roasted figs, baby greens and blue cheese. If you’re going to Walla Walla, make a reservation before you go.
Update Oct 2013
One of the positive things about making way too many trips to eastern Washington during crush is that occasionally we have time to enjoy one of the amazing Walla Walla restaurants. The standout dish for me on our recent visit to T Maccarone’s was their Grilled Peach, Mozzarella, Pickled Blackberries, Serrano Ham, and Arugula Salad with Meyer LemonVinaigrette. This salad, along with their wonderful bread made a perfect meal, although I also had the clams which were very good. On an earlier trip I had a memorable Grilled Fig Salad that inspired me to get a fig tree. Now I think I need to try pickling blackberries.
