Delicious Food Porn from 'North America's Best Restaurant'


DELICIOUS FOOD PORN FROM 'NORTH AMERICA'S BEST RESTAURANT'




To get to chef Blaine Wetzel’s restaurant you first have to travel to the very north of the Pacific North West of the USA, then hop on a ferry. But this hasn’t stopped the food world rushing to eat his food and bestow honours upon him – this week, restaurant blog Opinionated About Dining named The Willows Inn on Lummi Island as the Best Restaurant in North America for the second year in a row.

Having taken over the restaurant and boutique hotel in 2010, former Noma Chef de Partie and Washington State native Wetzel has built a reputation for hyper-local, hyper-tasty American cuisine, with most of the ingredients either grown or foraged on the island – think plenty of smoked fish, elk tartare and an abundance of delicious fruits, vegetables and herbs.

Bletzel was named as one of Forbes' 30 Under 30, a list of young people who are changing the way we eat, last year, so expect to hear more from this exciting young chef.

In the meantime enjoy a selection of dishes from the restaurant, some of which were produced for its annual First Harvest Dinner, when some of the world's best chefs are invited to cook with Wetzel there, and a short video in which he explains a little more about the restaurant, below.
