Bounty Week, Oct. 13-19, to feature locally grown foods on Valley restaurant menus

Snoqualmie Valley restaurants are celebrating the second annual Bounty Week, Oct. 13 to 19, and several restaurants, including The Black Dog in Snoqualmie, Carnation Cafe in Carnation and Red Pepper Pizzeria in Duvall are offering sneak peeks now of their menus.

Bounty Week is a week dedicated to food grown right here in the Snoqualmie Valley.

During Bounty Week, The Black Dog in Snoqualmie will prepare a pizza with an olive oil and garlic base, topped with fennel and golden beet, and paired with a side radicchio salad. Carnation Café will offer eggplant parmesan, featuring sweet delicata squash. Red Pepper Pizzeria in Duvall will feature their namesake, sweet red peppers, on their signature pizza and salad.

Participating restaurants include Black Dog Arts Cafe, Blake’s Pizzeria, Blue Heron Bar and Grill, Carnation Café, The Cottage, Duvall Grill and Taproom, Duvall Tavern, Flavour Bistro, Grange Café, Heirloom Cook Shop, Longevity Foods, North Bend Bar and Grill, Red Pepper Pizzeria, Fall City Roadhouse Restaurant and Inn, and Snoqualmie Taproom and Brewery

Bounty Week began in 2016 as a way to create connections between Snoqualmie Valley farms and restaurants. The Valley’s farms produce an amazing array of food, from vegetables, herbs, and fruit to beef, pork, and lamb to artisanal cheese and mushrooms.

Last year the Snoqualmie Brewery and Taproom participated in Bounty Week: “Our chefs used it to produce some marvelous dishes, and the customers not only raved about them, but actually walked up to the kitchen window to express their surprise at the quality of food coming out of our little kitchen. Everyone felt the food pairings were perfect as well,” said General Manager Dave Eiffert.

Bounty Week is a collaborative effort, coordinated by Savor Snoqualmie Valley, the Snoqualmie Valley Farmers Cooperative, Northwest Agriculture Business Center, SnoValley Tilth, in collaboration with Valley restaurants.
