Dining Around Town
Last week we had the pleasure of taking part in a tour of the Pacific Northwest’s first authentic Alpine chalet, the “Edelweiss Chalet”.
Located just above the chalet is a chocolate factory. Here, the tour guide told the story of Julius Boehm, founder of Boehms Chocolates, and pointed out features throughout the chalet-turned-museum, including the Olympic rings carved into the front door, charming farm animals painted on the kitchen cabinets, and art by one of Boehms’ own chocolate dippers.
After the chalet tour, the Members headed back down to the small, well-functioning chocolate factory where workers were breaking down peanut brittle and hand-dipping chocolates, among performing other tasks necessary to candy production.
The Members finished off the tour in the High Alpine Chapel – a small wedding chapel adorned with recreations of Michelangelo’s art and Austrian landscape paintings.
The Members shopped to their hearts’ content through the chocolate shop before ending the outing with a satisfying lunch at the nearby WildFin American Grill.
We’re always looking forward to our next tour opportunity, especially if it involves chocolate!
