Catch Vivian at two Taste of Washington Events this year.
Friday, March 29, 6pm: Sampling at The New Vintage
More than a night out on the town, The New Vintage is an unforgettable experience that delivers stories in the form of food and wine. With unexpected moments at every turn, this event is your backstage pass to meet and mingle with the exciting chefs and inspiring winemakers who are putting Seattle and Washington State on the world’s food and wine heat map.
Located in one of Seattle’s stylish new venues, The Sanctuary, The New Vintage welcomes Seattle star chefs Edouardo Jordan (JuneBaby), Ethan Stowell (Ethan Stowell Restaurants) and Rachel Yang (Joule) coupled with chef friends from around the country including Chris Cosentino (Cocksomb, San Francisco, CA), Vivian Howard (Chef and the Farmer, Kinston, NC), and Gregory Gourdet (Departure Restaurant + Lounge, Portland, OR). Experience wine cocktails at the Halo Bar up above, plus exclusive bites in an intimate space down below.
