Chicago at the Peace Center

This week Chicago is at the Peace Center , and we have been slammed every night. Tonight we are going to smoke ribeyes with wood from old bourbon barrels. It adds a great flavor to the steak before grilling. We will pair that with local fingerling potatoes from Terry Goldenstar, yellow wax bean casserole, and Clemson blue cheese butter.

Black Truffle Salt

I picked this up in Portland a few weeks ago. I think it would be great with french fries and fried eggs.

The Admiral in West Asheville

Van And I were in Asheville on Thursday and a friend and her husband told me to check out The Admiral. It is a little funky gastropub style place. Van had the wild Sockeye Salmon with Blue Corn Hominy and Fried Green Tomatoes. I had the Kurobota Pork Chop with Pommes Frites,Arugula, Goat Cheese, and Balsamic Reduction. The place sits about 50 people including the outside. They change their menu daily and they have a small garden out front. The place was full the whole time . And on a side note they have PBR in a can.
Here are some pictures from the web.
