1) Where does your passion for food come from?
We have traveled extensively and are inspired by the different cuisines and culinary experiences in each country and region. We seek out the traditional foods and bring home new ideas and try to recreate them in our own kitchen. Based on our passion for food we started our small business to bring Cascade Fusion Smoked Olive Oil to the market.
2) What will our fans find at your booth this fall?
The opportunity to taste our products and discover a unique ingredient for new culinary creations. Cascade Fusion Smoked Olive Oil and Cascade Fusion Balsamic Vinegar. We have wonderful gift ideas that will delight family and friends. Bob and Kris look forward to meeting you at our booth.
3) Where is your favorite place to eat?
Our current favorite restaurant is Copine in Ballard. A relatively new restaurant in Ballard with wonderful, creative dishes.
4) Where do you source your ingredients?
We get our Arbequina olive oil direct from Figueroa Farms in California. Everything is done at the farm, from milling the oil to bottling and labeling. The owner, Shawn Addison imports our balsamic vinegar from Modena Italy.
5) Tell us about a new product you are working on.
We have several ideas we are considering. We are intrigued with the idea of smoking balsamic vinegar and plan to do a test run. We have partnered with a seafood company and are trialing packing tuna with our smoked olive oil.
