October is harvest time in the San Juan Islands and that makes it a very special month for locals and visitors. To celebrate the season there are many happenings to choose from.
Savor the San Juans is a medley of food, art and culture. Our favorite activity is the special showcase of the Island’s best resturaunts coupled with local produce and a special price for all to enjoy.
This Friday night, October 12th, Coho resturant’s chef Bill Messick will create an atumnal menu to pair with local winemaker Chris Primus’ evening wine selections. This six course meal will include plates such as pan seared scallops with braised pork belly and napa cabbage, grilled ribeye, potatoe rosti and broccolini, finished with an apple and cheddar pie.
October 26th Coho will feature an Italian dinner PNW style. Chef Bill Messick has created a specific menu to pair with Italian varietal wines from Washington state that are true to the original grape from Italy, but also unique to Washington. These wines have been hand picked by trusted Sommelier Jonathan Sindleman. The fabulous six course menu includes delights such as, pan seared venison tenderloin with roasted fingerling potatoes, and Painted Hills braised oxtails, with white bean & butternut squash angnolott.
