We spent the first weekend in March on Whidbey Island, in Coupeville, WA. for our 6th year hanging out at the Penn Cove mussel fest. Chris Garr volunteers his time to do cooking demonstrations representing Ivar’s Acres of Clams, and we make it a full weekend, hanging out and enjoying food, and LOTS of drinks! this Year we sat down with Rawle Jefferds, Joseph Labatt, and Big Steve Clarke and a quiet, but great guy Charlie  after hanging out in the beer tent listening to live music.


Just a warning, we basically brought a party to Chris’ room and this episode gets to be a hot mess! We interrupt each other, repeat ourselves a couple times, end up having multiple conversations at once, and there are people being loud in the background. But we had a blast hanging out, and despite the craziness talked about some great stuff regarding Penn Cove Shellfish LLC, and the people who make that company so valuable to the community, as well as what makes Penn Cove Shellfish important to the local culinary industry. We also get some great insight into the culinary industry here in Seattle in general.
