Caseus, Hapa, Lobstercraft, Skinny Pines + StrEATery Compete Today in Food Truck Throwdown!

19 May
Food Truck Throwdown 2016

Meet the meat masters . . .

Look at these five food trucks and what they are throwing down for today’s Food Truck Throwdown! Honestly, we’re going to have the toughest time judging all these amazing dishes. But, it’s not just about us judging, you also get a vote and say in crowning the People’s Choice champ! It all starts at 4 today at 805 Atlantic Street in Stamford. Tickets are $25 and that gets you a 4-6 oz. sample from each truck plus lots of fun and events. Proceeds from this event will go towards Optimus Health Care who fights to “Improve the overall health of our communities in Bridgeport, Stamford, and Stratford, particularly the medically underserved, by providing preventive, primary care and supplemental health care services along with health education in a culturally sensitive manner regardless of ones’ ability to pay.”

See you there, we’ll be stopping by around 6. If you see us, please say hi! For more info about this event, check out our original post.

[oink] is heading to Caseus in New Haven. Get your tix now! Picture from their Facebook page.

[oink] is a new popup from Chefs Craig Hutchinson who worked at the award-winning Ribelle in Brookline, MA and Alex Lischynsky who worked with Craig at Radius among other great restaurants in Boston. Their focus? Real, from the ground, from the farm, sustainable and pure food done right. And, it sure doesn’t hurt that the food they are using for their events comes from CT land. They’ve been making appearances from place to place, too, most notably and recently at Black Hog Brewing for a continuing series of pop up dinners. Continue reading

Chief Brody’s Banh Mi Truck + Jason Sobocinski Sock it to Homelessness

9 Oct

As a continuation of his Guest Chef Series, Chef Greg Martell from Chief Brody’s Banh Mi food truck will be teaming up with Chef Jason Sobocinski from Caseus in New Haven and Black Hog. They’ll be manning the food truck together on October 15 from 11-3 at the corner of York and Chapel. At that time they will not only be serving up their regular awesome menu, but will also have a special Banh Mi from the food-genius mind of Jason Sobocinski. But, this isn’t the first time these two chefs have worked together, oh no. Martell actually used to work the Caseus food truck!

Oh, and there’s an extra incentive to order that special sandwich: Chief Brody’s will donate $2 from every purchase to Columbus House Inc. who serves the homeless and those in risk of being homeless. In addition, they will be a Sock Drive going down. Just bring a pair of new socks in and you’ll be entered to win some great swag from Caseus, Ordinary, Black Hog, and Chief Brody’s.

A trifecta of events to make Derby Day 2014 awesome in Milford, New Haven, + Norwalk

24 Apr

2014 marks the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby, the Indy 500 of the horse-racing world.  As we mentioned in our post about the special Kentucky bourbon tasting at Harry’s, the derby is really just an excuse for people to dress in huge ass hats and wear lots of Vineyard Vines and searsucker suits.  But, you can’t just get all dressed up and all fancy looking then stay at home.  Psssh, what fun would that be?  You best believe that we’ve got to help you out a bit.  So, here are three really exciting and adventurous things to do on Derby Day…hideous hat not necessarily included.

Wakeman Town Farm Holds First Farm to Table Event Featuring CT’s Best Chefs!

24 Jul

“Grassroots” is an event not to be missed.  It’s the kind of thing that if you miss it, you realize that you’re not one of the cool kids anymore.  It’s the kind of event that when you go, you realize how awesome food is and how wicked good it feels to keep it local.  Although the “Grassroots” farm to table dinner won’t be going on until September 15, we felt that we had to tell you about it now because tickets go on sale this Friday, August 3 and are $150 each.  Make sure that you’re following Wakeman Town Farm by e-mail newsletter if you’re a member…that’s where you’ll find the invitation.  It will also be up on their site with a link to purchase tickets via PayPal.

Here are some of the best chefs that CT has who are locavores, ready to transform local seasonal veggies (from nearby farms) into meals of yumminess:

Gnocchi from Artisan in Southport

Frederic Kieffer of Artisan, Southport

The dinner will also help Wakeman Town Farm to raise money for their farm.  Their plans?  Spruce up the place, give away scholarships, create high school and college internships, and install animal shelters for their children’s program.  Another way to help Wakeman Town Farm is by becoming a member.  Here are some of the ways to help out along with the benefits:

Jason Sobocinski + John Barricelli Book Signing and Tasting for The Wakeman Town Farm, 5/6

29 Apr

Behold the awesomeness!

Yes, after a successful swag run that included white shoes at $20 at Marshall’s Shoes in Westport, I snuck into Barnes & Noble while Kristien oohed and aahed over the vast array of shoes.  Barnes & Noble, my oasis, my escape from the monotony of shoe shopping…how I love you.  Well, wouldn’t you know what we found when Kristien made her way in?

Click through to purchase/look at book at B&N

A double dose of culinary and cheeseuary awesomeness in the form of a book signing!  Yes, so just stop in at the Barnes & Noble in Westport on 5/6/12 from noon-2 pm and you’ll be able to meet Jason Sobocinski from Caseus Fromagerie and Bistro and John Barricelli from The SoNo Baking Company.  Their books will be for sale, and you’ll be able to get them signed all in support of a bookfair for the Wakeman Town Farm education center in Westport.  We checked and you’ll be able to bring in your own copies, oh intrepid foodicionados.  This is for a fundraiser, though, so consider buying both books to be signed.  Oh, but wait, did you catch that other word on the sign?  Yes, TASTING.  Muahahahaha!  You’d be absolutely dumb not to attend.  Think ahead, too…wouldn’t this be a perfect gift for your lovely wife or your mother on that special day that comes only once a year?  Or, think of your favorite bloggers named Dan and Kristien Del Ferraro…

You are probably familiar with both Jason and John, because they seem to be everywhere these days.  Jason is well known for his awesome restaurant, food truck, and store Caseus in New Haven and also for hosting The Big Cheese on The Food Network.  Also, John has received countless kudos from the media and fans for his food and baked goods (especially our ode to the stuffed french toast) and  hosts his own show called Everyday Baking on PBS.

In addition, please also consider coming in earlier than the book signing to support Wakeman Town Farm.  Starting at 10 am, there will be lots of fun events and green activities that celebrate how amazing farms are and why we love spring.  This will be a great place to take your kids, hint hint wink wink nod nod.
