In a buzzy room of Monsoon restaurant, bartenders, cocktail judges and gin enthusiasts came together for the Gindonesia Tiki Night last Sunday. Organized and sponsored by the Seattle Gin Society and by Lucas Bols USA, some of Seattle’s best bartenders went indeed head-to-head in a showdown for the most authentic Tiki cocktail contest. Judges had to rate balance, complexity, taste, presentation and garnish for a total of 25 points.

During the International Food Blogger Conference, we were all exposed to several new and old products from cookies and nuts to bread mixes and seeds. This year my favorite product -and I vote for it-is the Noosa Pumpkin Yogurt. And this was unexpected as I am not a pumpkin fan. I don't like pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin muffins or even pumpkin beer or gum (they both exist). The only pumpkin related dish I enjoy is the pumpkin and corn soup, flavorful and smooth!
Therefore, I was surprised with this Noosa flavored yogurt. It is soft and creamy and tasty and the pumpkin puree blends perfectly with the creamy substance. Easy to eat, you will ask for seconds. And I don't blame you.

One of my favorite things at the International Food Blogger Conference was this year's tote bag. I like it better full with the goodies but it is lovely empty as well. I wonder what people will say when I will carry it around in Seattle and in locations that my travels will take me. Here it is in color and in a Mad Men-like black & white version:
