Cascadia Creamery's beloved Glacier Blue.

The Good Food Awards, surely the only honorary with an "elixir" category, announced its 2018 winners this weekend in San Francisco. Per usual, Washington represented well in this annual celebration of sustainable, crazy tasty local food and drink products. This year's local victors included some familiar names alongside some newcomers. (Mental note: check out that snacking cacao and spicy eggplant kasundi situation, stat.)
