Great Plates: Rogue Estate BBQ

On July 29th our friends at Torino Espresso +Bar hired Rogue Estate's Catering gang to cook and serve a gourmet caliber BBQ Dinner to celebrate their one year anniversary. We sourced all out ingredients locally, including organic pasture raised pork from Melo Farms and served up these great plates: A VIP menu of BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich, BBQ Spare Ribs, Detroit BBQ Co's FrankenBakon, Mustard Coleslaw, Smoked Mac & Cheese and Fresh Dill Pickles put smiles on a lot of faces.  Photos by Robbie Small and EatItDetroit. -///

Great Plates: The Brunch Underground

On Sunday Ian, Deb and Bob were fortunate enough to score reservations at a local "pop up" brunch club in Metro Detroit called "The Brunch Underground". The locally sourced (and well executed) menu:

--Bloody Mary bar featuring McClure's Mix & Pickles -- An open-faced duck eggs benedict entree, one with crispy pork belly, another with house-made tempeh and sauteed greens with a lightly dressed sprout salad and house made vegetarian kimchi. -- A petite scoop of house-made, locally grown, organic raspberry-ginger sorbet. -- Chazzano coffee
