Chef Dan Kardos of Bartaco Westport Teams up w/ Shearwater Coffee This Sunday

19 Dec

Sunday is all about coffee, chilling, and good food, so why not do all three at Bartaco in Westport? From 1-3 on 12/21, they’ll have a few treats for you. First up is Ed Freedman of Shearwater Coffee Roasters in Trumbull. He’ll be hanging out, so feel free to ask him all about the roasting process and what goes into the making of a good coffee. While you’re there, you’ll definitely want to check out what Executive Chef Dan Kardos (formerly of The Whelk, NOLA, Local Kitchen) is cooking up! That’s cuz he’ll be making up a special treat made with some Shearwater coffee.

And, since we’ve got you here, you can also check out Bartaco/Barcelona’s online shop for all kind of goodies! Act fast if you want delivery for Christmas: you’ll have to order today. Some items available are t-shirts, caps, glassware, olive oil, paella and sangria kits, their popular hot sauces, and the Barcelona cookbook. 

Local Beer, Moonshine, Wine + Coffee Dinner to Celebrate Parallel Post’s 1st Birthday

19 Nov
 

UPDATE:  the dinner sold out last night!  Sorry if you couldn’t snag a ticket.  

There are beer dinners, there are wine dinners, and there are even spirits dinners…but Parallel Post in Trumbull has topped all of that to celebrate their first year in business.  They’ve gone and thrown it all together into one culinary orgy of greatness on 11/20, starting at 6 pm for $65 per person (not including tax and tip).

First we’re talking about a birthday reception with Stratford’s Two Roads Brewing and East Hartford’s Onyx Spirits (first legal moonshine in New England).  Next up is the meal itself…five courses worth paired with wine from Connecticut Distributors.  The meal will be cooked by Chef and Restaurateur Dean James Max, Executive Chef Christopher Molyneux, and Chef de Cuisine Ali Goss.  Finally, wrapping things up, you’ll get to try a cocktail made with Trumbull’s own Shearwater Coffee Roasters that will pair nicely with the dessert options made by Madelyn Rendon.
