Chef Patrick Nelson's Salmon Dish

“I am excited to meet other people from around the country and share food,” - Chef Nelson

Brown Paper Tickets' Food, Farm and Beverage Specialist Chef Patrick Nelson will be headed to St. Louis on October 28-29 to represent Washington State in the state-based food showcase. Fifty chefs will present a dish symbolizing their state at the event.

Chef Nelson will present cedar planked sockeye salmon with an apple cider/honey glaze, pea shoots, and tayberry mead pickled Walla Walla onions. Many of these ingredients are directly sourced from Washington – including the apples, honey, and pea shoots directly from Chef Nelson's Crowsfeet Farm, in Everett, WA.

“I am excited to meet other people from around the country and share food,” Chef Nelson said about Flavored Nation.“I think it's going to be fun and educational for everyone.”

When he's not assisting event organizers with their food events at Brown Paper Tickets, Chef Nelson owns and manages his own farm, as well as teaches workshops focused on creating a Suitcase Kitchen. These workshops show touring musicians, pop-up chefs and any other interested parties how to pack a full kitchen into a suitcase for on-the-go cooking. This will be Chef Nelson's first time serving at Flavored Nation.

Flavored Nation hearkens back to the 1904 World's Fair to bring chefs from around the country back to St. Louis. They are determined to find out what everyone is truly eating in every corner of the country. The event is also designed to help fight local hunger by donating $5 from every ticket purchased to the St. Louis Area Foodbank.

Tickets begin at $45. Find more information at
