About The Rogue Estate
Established in the autumn of 2009 after a series of particularly successful BBQs and Dinner Parties, The Rogue Estate is an exploration of the very best in food, drink and related pleasures. Current wings of the estate include this blog, a BBQ catering operation, a Saucery and a kitchen mercenary gig which operate under the R.E. banner and a weekly “Chef’s Night” test kitchen / dinner party.
The Rogue Estate Blog’s Authors are: Bob “Macross” Perye, Jack Wynne, Ian Malbon, Steve Kempner, our irreverent alumni and occasional guests. We are cooks, eaters, drinkers and writers all currently based in the Metro Detroit area. We explore and exploit the incredible ethnic diversity of our surroundings at every opportunity, giving ourselves and our audience a global culinary variety. Everything here is written from first hand experience. We may reference the works of others, but never without engaging in the subject directly.
The name itself, The Rogue Estate, is a piss-take on the concept of the 4th and 5th estates, Journalism and Internet Journalism respectively. It’s all in good times and for good taste, although not necessarily in good taste.
This is work of love, inspired by our surroundings and experiences in our kitchens, markets, tobacconists, bars and eateries. We invite you to read, comment, contribute and most importantly, enjoy!
