A trip to Seattle isn't complete without a stopover at Pike Place Market. Second only to San Francisco's Ferry Building, this market offers beautiful, even tantalizing local produce at reasonable prices. You'll pay the same as you will at the grocery store but the quality will be twice as good. Moon Valley Honey is my new favorite...I've never tasted honey this delicious. Anyway, across the street from the market is Beecher's, a cheese house we also love to hit. In the past I've purchased this paste (in apricot) and enjoyed eating it with Brie and some hard cheeses too. During a recent visit to Harmons I spotted this very paste, in several flavors, in their cheese aisle. I can't get over how gourmet Harmons is becoming...it's awesome :) These fruit pastes are the perfect addition to your holiday cheese plate. Add a few Mediterranean olives from the olive bar and you'll have a gourmet appetizer in a matter of minutes. Think: "Work Party".
