Salty's Kathy Kingen wins Best Food Blog award from 425 Magazine

425 magazine, a publication of Premier Media, held their annual "Best of" awards cocktail party last month at Sotheby's Realogics, in Kirkland. Salty's on Alki's representatives attended to receive the top honor of winning in THREE categories; Best Brunch, Best Lunch & Best Dessert.

However, after thumbing through the pages of the brightly colored issue, low and behold, Kathy Kingen's name popped out! "WINNER! Best Food Blogger!"

Of course, all of us at Salty's have known her talent for years, but now the greater Seattle area - Eastside, North side, West side, South side.....and soon the world will know her writing abilities and commitment to health. As one of our fearless leaders (co-owner with her husband Gerry Kingen), Kathy is a bright light whenever she enters a room. She is a soft shoulder, a tender heart and a you can feel her love of people the minute you begin a conversation with her.

"I am so very honored to receive the 425 magazine "Best Food Blogger" award. It just goes to show that the local community truly cares about their health and the benefits of clean eating. My heart is full." - Kathy Kingen.

Kathy's blog is entitles "Good for You!" and can be read in Salty's Good Times Newsletter. Robinson news has also picked her up as a contributing columnist for the West Seattle Herald and Highline Times. Kathy's latest blog is "Wild Pacific Halibut: A Brilliant Food and Sustainable Fish"
