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.

7th Annual Easton Farm Tour Takes Place This Saturday!

20 Aug

The Easton Farm Tour is back! Pic from Citizens for Easton.

Farmers and farms are the netting that holds our society together. We don’t often get a chance to be on the farms, to see what they do day in and day out, but we sure do get a chance to reap the benefits of what they reap. Well, Citizens for Easton have put together their 7th Annual Easton Farm Tour to help us make connections and to give us even more reasons to appreciate what we have here in Fairfield County.

The Easton Farm Tour is absolutely free and is a self guided tour, so you can go at your own pace and even go to whichever farms that you’d like. You’ll meet at Easton Firehouse Green at 1 Center Road and you’ll get a map to help you begin your journey. Along the way you’ll find special events and deals from farmers and community organizations.  Continue reading

There’s going to be a food truck court! You’ll be able to check out the saucy pies of Skinny Pines, the savory and sweetness of Christophe’s Crepes, and everybody’s favorite seafood shack on wheels, Lobstercraft.

Farm Fresh Pesto, Sauces, Meat, Veggies, and the Cold Roman! New Canaan Farmer’s Market-New Canaan, CT

11 Jun

Farmer Joe of Smith's Acre, dishing out fresh veggies!

It seems that Farmer’s Markets are sprouting up all over Connecticut now.  Stamford has their French Market (review coming soon) and also Friday Farm Market at Stamford Museum & Nature Center.  New Canaan, also, has a nice spread and variety of local goods.  Open Saturdays, 10-2, rain or shine until November 19, 2011.  It’s at the corner of South Avenue, Main Street, and Maple Street.  We toured the stands today and dug down for info on your behalf, dear foodies.  Here’s a list of places and what they’ve got to offer you! :)

• Du Soleil:  Healthy and gourmet food such as quinoa salad, pestos, hummus, and more. Their cilantro pesto was to die for, but unfortunately they ran out before we had a chance to grab some to take home. Instead we left with the caper and olive hummus which was very nice.

Raus Coffee:  Coffee, ground or prepared for you.  Try the Cold Roman® ,an iced espresso frothed with cream and a touch of sugar… you’ll be hooked.  Ask for a sample if you want to find a new drug! Their coffee is also sold at the Westport Farmer’s Market, Double L Market, Arogya Tea, and served at one of our favorite farm to table spots, Le Farm.

Michele’s Pies:  Great variety of homemade, freshly made pies.  The blueberry and blackberry pie was great…not too sweet with lots of crumbly goodness.  She even went up against Bobby Flay in a pumpkin pie throwdown.

Plasko’s Farm:  Farm fresh fruits and veggies.  Cider donuts (YUM), spreads, and a ton of delicious looking condiments like fresh salsa, pickles, jams, and more.

Riverbank Farm:  Farm fresh fruit and veggies, all organic.

Dream Desserts:  Excellent gluten-free desserts.  The peanut butter bar was amazing. Usually gluten-free desserts are blah, but these were really good!

Stone’s Throw Farm:  Farm fresh fruits and veggies.

• Bongo & Cappaci:  Handmade and fresh ravioli for sale. Kristien raved about the greek ravioli she sampled, packed with feta, cucumber, olives, tomatoes and red onion. He only sells at farmer’s markets and local restaurants but won’t reveal which ones.  We tried to bribe him with a canoli.  Didn’t work.

• Uncle Buck’s Secret Garden: Purrrdy flowers for sale.

• St. Ex. Specialty Foods:  Fresh made mozzarella and killer pesto that Kristien’s fellow Humongite David Plain raved about.  We are holding a tub of it ransom and asking David for $40 for its safe return to his house.

Whistle Stop Bakery: Pie, cookies, and other baked goods.

Greyledge Farm: Pork, beef, sausage, chicken, and lamb for sale in different cuts. Oh and like six flavors of bacon. Bacon. Yeah, need we say more? Expensive, but local and worth it.

Gazy Brother’s Farm:  Farm fresh fruits and veggies.

Beldotti Bakeries:  Amazing variety of breads, including this fantastic looking onion bread, olive bread, and sausage bread.

Smith’s Acre: Farm fresh fruits and veggies.

Skinny Pines:  Imagine this:  a food truck with a portable wood fired brick oven pizza!  People have been raving about this pie, and we’re dying to get a slice of the action.  We’ll have to come back to try some next time!  Oh, even better?  They cook their pies with local ingredients, including their flour!  Sweet.
