Local Focus – Global Reach

Posted by Mikaela Cowles Judd

By 4:50 on a Wednesday night, the line stretched down the block and around the corner at JuneBaby. Whispers of turkey legs fried in oxtail fat spread from patron to patron. When the door finally opened at 5:01, the street was flooded with the savory scent of braised meat.

The line wasn’t new. It’s a regular occurrence in Seattle’s quaint Ravenna neighborhood. After all, Chef Edouardo Jordan won not one, but two James Beard Awards in 2018 — Best Chef: Northwest for his nearby restaurant Salare and Best New Restaurant for JuneBaby....

Thanks Loy! It really is an amazing spot! I can't wait to go back. There were so many good things on the menu that I didn't get to try.

We weren't an "outdoorsy family." My mom, always said, “Camping is one bathroom and slow room service."

So while I grew up hunting with my dad and building forts in the backyard, my childhood was spent with easy access to a shower and a soft bed.

But the older I've grown, the more I've learned to love the outdoors. The more I relish nature. It's a passion I can't wait to share with this little girl and continue to foster in myself.

A huge shoutout to Rachel Zupke for letting a novice hiker tag along and for introducing me to the amazing Brenda Ulinski — who graciously captured the pictures in this piece. You two fill my heart with joy. I can't wait to hit the trail with you again, perhaps with a little friend!

Nice article!

Not gonna beat around the bush, flying on a seaplane is one of my all-time favorite things to do. The views. The thrill. The fast travel times. Did I mention the views?

If you're curious what it's like and what you really should (and maybe shouldn't) pack — I have you covered!
