The Last {CollaBREWation} Supper

It’s a bittersweet day in the LBLF world.

The time has come for my dear friend and chef collaBREWator, Dan Higgins (and his lovely lady), to move to Portland, Oregon. Cue sad trombone. I’ve learned a tremendous amount from Dan and can say that without a doubt, my cooking skills have improved as a direct result of his mentorship – I can’t thank him enough. *tear*

We knew the only appropriate send off would be a beer and food pairing dinner so glorious, it would at least temporarily soothe the sting of their departure.

But before we get to that – some crazy and fun updates!

On May 26th I launched ‘Beer Ed,’ an interactive beer and food tasting series with none other than one of my favorite places on earth: Findlay Market. The event is monthly, and features three courses of Findlay food paired up with Cincy brews. This upcoming class is Sunday June 29th at 2 pm and will feature dishes from Eckerlin Meats and Christian Moerlein beers! If you’re here locally, I’d love to see you there!! Learn more and get tickets HERE.

But that’s not all!  Friday I got an email from Fox 19 that they wanted to do a live tv segment, basically a ‘preview’ of the event! At first I was super nervous but it actually turned out to be really fun.

OK, now, onto the real excitement of the hour: Six courses of beer and food pairing heaven. Continue reading The Last {CollaBREWation} Supper

Local Bottle Shop Spotlight: Market Wines

A bunch of the Cincy beer bloggers and I are collaborating on a joint effort to share our favorite, local, sometimes hole in the wall, bottle shops. Luckily, we live in different areas of town, meaning there is a broad swath of small, local businesses being featured this week.

The below list will continue to get updated as the posts come in, so far we have:

Individual Strawberry Rhubarb (Cardamom) Crumbles

Wandering around my most favorite local market always gives me so much inspiration (and NO it is not Trader Joe’s, but good guess).

Individual Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

This time, I discovered some absolutely gorgeous rhubarb at Daisy Mae’s at Findlay Market. It was just too pretty to put down. I mean, seriously?
