Expect Sweet Stuff From Chef Nikol At Auction Picnic
Oh, goodie! Just got a sneak peek at the dessert lineup for Thursday’s Auction of Washington Wine Picnic, a winning combination of nostalgia-inspired sweets--root beer floats bring out the kid in everybody!--and trendy treats. Tulalip Resort Casino’s Nikol Nakamura has done it again!
Here’s what picnic-goers can expect:
- Coconut Tapioca with mango-lime salad and mango sorbet
- Mini Blueberry Hand Pies
- Individual Pineapple Upside Down Cakes with black pepper whipped cream and cherries
- Nutella with pistachios and sea salt fudge
- Root Beer Floats with Snoqualmie gourmet vanilla ice cream and artisanal root Beer
- Mimosa Jell-O Shots
It sure sounds spectacular. See you in the dessert tent?
The Picnic & Barrel Auction and Saturday's Gala both benefit the Seattle Children's Hospital and Washington State University’s Viticulture & Enology Program.
