NW Epicurean-A Local Company Whose Mission Is To Identify, Educate, Promote, and Enjoy the Regional Cuisine of the South Puget Sound

Based in Olympia, NW Epicurean highlights and promotes the local food and agriculture within the Puget Sound community though agritourism and special events.  Owned by Marieke Gerrittsen, a graduate of Evergreen State College, who is passionate about what she does.  She comes from a farming family.  She a certified Nutritional Educator & has a degree in studies focusing in scientific and nutritional education.

I liked her the minute I met her.   She is fun and energetic.  We love going to our “Foodie” Events.

In March we drove up to Seattle for the Foodportunity event. We had so much delicious food and met other interesting people in the “biz.”  OMG it was so much fun…I had the best oysters by Taylor Shellfish who have been growing shellfish in the bays and inlets of Puget Sound for over 100 years!

Her website is full of wonderful pictures of local farms, food, and tours.

To give you an example of a tour by NW Epicurean, she had one called “Aphrodisiac Tour.”  Hmm, the name intrigued me.  Headline: Fresh Puget Sound Oysters, a Xinh’s seafood buffet paired with award winning wines, and local artisan chocolates.  Sounds good to me…sign me up!  (Seafood, Wine, and Chocolate, winning combo)

Tours bring guests to multiple culinary locations to meet the producers and learn about the culinary culture of the South Puget Sound.  From farms, wineries, breweries, bakeries, butchers, and to creameries that sustain our food culture year-round.  If you are passionate about food, the northwest, local venues, and having fun with your friends, please check out this LOCAL company’s website.  Tours being added all the time.
