This Month we’re celebrating more than St. Valentines Day. Here in Walla Walla, FEBRUARY IS FOR FOODIES! For those of you who haven’t heard about this before, it is a time when many of the local restaurants prepare special menus that are only offered in February. Walla Walla is home to many award winning chefs AND an amazing culinary arts department at Walla Walla Community College which means there are many options to choose from! (There is even an opportunity for you to take a cooking class with some of these chefs on Feb. 14 at the Marcus Whitman Hotel & Feb. 21 at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel.) In addition to the restaurants many wineries are sweetening the deal with special cheese & chocolate pairings! (Dunham Cellars has a chocolate made exclusively for them by a company in San Francisco. While many other wineries & tasting rooms offer amazing choices from our very own Bright’s Candies).
A number of lodging venues are offering “February Is For Foodies” rates or “Sweetheart Packages” so be sure to ask for those when booking your rooms. We would love to pick you up at your hotel, Bed & Breakfast, or Vacation Rental and take you to the wineries and restaurants of your choice. You can find more details at wallawalla.org. We look forward to seeing you soon!
