Dude Sweet owner Katherine Clapner posted on her shop’s Facebook page this weekend’s featured frozen flavors, and they sound like a crazy, creative, and tasty way to beat the heat. FROZEN YOGURTS: fig/malted milk and banana/baharat. ICE CREAMS: rooibus/white chocolate and ginger beer. SORBETS: blueberry/fennel pollen, kiwi/matcha, miso/togarashi, chocolate/pomegranate molasses, and Mexican papaya/agave.
It seems there is a holiday for everything from sliced bread day (July 7th), to opening a bottle of wine with dinner day (just a day before rum day on Aust 15th), to your favorite spirits day, and in turn National Rum Day is Tuesday, August 16th. If you are a fan of the spirit made from cane sugar or are just looking for a refreshing summer cocktail that will transport you to the Caribbean, give one of these tasty concoctions a try. Be careful though, these sweet and savory combos go down very easy on a 100 degree day.
Mount Gay Rum, one of the oldest and finest rums made from pure sugar cane, molasses and pure filtered water in Barbados has launched a new 100 proof rum aged in Kentucky white oak casks which are charred lightly to create a sweet and smoky flavor and deep amber color. Mount Gay Eclipse Black was just relased into the marketplace last month and promises to deliver intense yet refined character with a smooth taste and silky texture. Their 100 Reasons cocktail takes a traditional mojito up a notch with an extra layer of honey and caramel flavors from the rum and sweet spiciness from the ginger.5 Comments »
I bet Steven Doyle doesn’t even know about this!! I just happened to stumble across it on the CBS site. Looks like they are going to have a Most Valuable Blogger competition. I would never suggest who you should nominate but The Scott at Dallasfood.org has already made his sentiments known. This is going to be an interesting ride.1 Comment »
Café Mykonos, a “European restaurant with a Greek influence,” is, according to their website, undergoing a facelift. This morning comes word from their head surgeon, chef Tony Gardizi. You remember Tony. He’s cheffed at Vino and Basso, Guthrie’s, Bali Bar, Mi Piaci, and Capriccio Ristoranti. Most recently he went down with the ship at Decanter Restaurant in Bishop Arts. Chef Gardizi’s new menu at Café Mykonos rolls out today.
UPITTY DATE: Gardizi said the new menu is locally sourced New American. It will not be Greek at all.
Jeez, I forgot to mention Vueve. You remember Vueve and Club Nine7Two. The Champagne company got upset and they had to change their name to Vue. There was a miniature Trevi Fountain in the dining room and Gardizi attempted to create Global Cuisine? If you don’t remember, Heather will show you around.4 Comments »
