The Cardinal Cafe



While sketching at Gordon's a couple of weeks ago we came upon the Skagit Valley College culinary arts students.  We were told that they cook gourmet lunches for the public.  Everything is made from scratch.  Jerlyn, Linden, Kalena, and Missy headed over this afternoon to try it out.  What a treat!!   The service was suberb and the visiting chef from Puerto Vallarta came out to the table to tell us about his Mexican cuisine which included plantain appetizer with tomatillo guacamole, shrimp serviche, salmon tents (?), empanadas, and mango sorbet swimming in hibiscus consommé with a fushia sugar spoon!!  Wow! Of course, we sketched.
