A new week and a new feature on the Food Media site (notice I didn’t say food blog site as it will soon be more than just a blog), The Man Who Ate the Town. The feature, which is a series or category is called “Food Pairing Series.” This is because I, along with The BCPF, are invited to be part of a lot of food pairings, be it wine pairings, bourbon, beer, other liquors, etc. So, I figured it would be cool to go ahead and have a feature dedicated to those pairings.
One thing I do want to point out, though, is that these articles on The Man Who Ate the Town aren’t supposed to be time sensitive. They’re not meant to necessarily “pair” with a holiday or any particular theme. As a matter of fact, the dinner I talk about in this edition of the Food Media site, was held the day before Valentine’s Day, a whole month ago. The purpose of these posts/articles are to bring awareness to the chefs, restaurateurs, and owners of the best restaurants this area has to offer. It’s a showcase to allow them to show off their stuff and makes a case as to why you should follow them and their establishments, to see what is coming in the future.
Like a good steak, I feel you should let a dinner rest in your mind, creating a space to choose the right words and descriptions, before throwing out something in haste. I understand that some of my counterparts/peers are involved with deadlines and such and have to get their work out quickly. I get that, but I am not under such duress. Granted, I will say that a month is probably a bit long to wait, but you know I’ve had a lot going on and I wanted to say the right thing, not just throw something out to hurry and get it done.
So, I’m not only writing about that website on this blog, I’m going to piggyback it so you can get a good read of the “‘Illest Bourbon Dinner” from Chef Tim Grandinetti of Spring House Restaurant, Kitchen and Bar. You can read the article here. Follow Chef Tim on Twitter: @DocBrownstone
Enjoy the article, Dear Reader, and know that another of this series is set to come out later this week. Sláinte! Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“15 Year, 107 Proof A younger version of our famous 20-year-old Pappy Van Winkle’ Family Reserve, this bourbon was crafted according to our exclusive family wheated recipe. The smooth, oak flavor blends well with the barrel proof. Selected from barrels in the heart of our Kentucky warehouse, it has remained untouched for 15 years and unhurried by time. ‘A whiskey connoisseur’s bonanza,…remarkable find…ranks with the best whiskeys,’ Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal. Rated 98 by the Beverage Tasting Institute” – Pappy Van Winkle 15 Year webpage
