Backstage Dinner at Chateau Ste Michelle

Sometimes it’s hard to find good food when you are on the road. Being someone who loves to cook, I took it upon myself to build the TasteCase, a mobile kitchen  we take on tour as a means to make some great food when we want to.  As we have rolled through different cities across the country we’ve used this little kitchen to make (many) margaritas, braised pork sandwiches, pan seared trout and so much more. I’ve cooked for the band, for our friend’s in other bands, for our hardworking crew, and even a few fans along the way. But I have never cooked  in that environment for Seattle. It’s overdue.

I’m pleased to announce that I will be hosting a pop-up dinner backstage prior to our show at Chateau Ste Michelle Winery on Friday, June 13th. Eight lucky guests will be chosen by lottery to attend an intimate and exclusive three course meal prepared backstage at Chateau Ste Michelle’s Manor House. (Outside if the rain stays away!) The band has recently traveled to Southeast Asia for some shows and left with a love of that region’s food, so I’ve created a menu inspired by our recent travel. The meal will feature wine pairings generously provided by Chateau Ste Michelle.

There is no cost to you, our guest, for the meal. (You already have to have tickets to the show, however.)  This is my way, Allen’s way, and Chateau Ste Michelle’s way of saying “THANK YOU” for your continued support. We’d like to treat you to a memorable evening and provide you with a special meal prior to a very special show.

    I will be attending the show with my husband and 2 of our best friends. If we are lucky enough to receive 4 dinner spots, my musician friend, of 20+ years, and his beautiful wife that celebrated her 42nd birthday this week, would be smitten! Thank you for the opportunity. We are all soooo excited for your show. 🙂
