Sign spotted last Thursday on window at Tutta Bella in Wallingford
They are our prep cooks, line cooks, sous chefs, small business and restaurant owners, servers, busboys, dishwashers and bartenders. They tend the vines and harvest the grapes that go into our award winning, world class Washington wines.
They pick (and pack) the apples and cherries, raspberries, Walla Walla onions and asparagus our state is famous for. And they grow a lot of the organic produce that comes to our farmers markets (nationwide) every week.
They are our housekeepers, nannies and day laborers. My clients. Fellow Seattleites and Washingtonians.
