Hops and Barley: Boston-style Crab Cake with Cabbage Slaw and Rémoulade
I love crab cakes but being from Australia were seafood is super expensive, especially crab (and lobster) I was eager to sink my teeth into them. (are you surprised that our seafood is expensive considering we are the biggest island in the world?...yeah it’s a huge issue here)…I digress….
I have to say I was disappointed.Why? mainly because of the dill mixed through it. I am not a fan.
Hops and Barley: New England Lobster Roll
Again, was disappointed due to the amount of dill sprinkled through it.
Hops and Barley: Boston Lager (I think)
Enough to wet my lips….
US: Bison Chili with Wild Mushrooms, Cabernet, and Pepper Jack Cheese
Well hello Bison Chilli! I am moving to Bison country and to meet me a cowboy, where I can eat chilli and saddle up a horse….this chilli was get my whip out delish!.
US: Heirloom Tomatoes with Oregon Blue Cheese, Red Onions, and Basil
Really loved this dish. Cold and tasty with a wonderful bite from the Oregon Blue….I am hunting down the recipe!
US: Red Stag by Jim Beam
Cold and icy refreshing, just what I needed as it was getting hot and I was parched! The glass was empty very quickly!
Spain: Seared Albacore Tuna with Romesco Sauce
Ireland: Lobster and Scallop Fisherman’s Pie
Yum, yum and yum….the lobster was sweet and the scallop tender…nothing overcooked here! An absolute winner!
Desserts & Champagne: Strawberry Angel Verrine
The only reason I ended up with this was because I wanted the tasting plate of all three but they had run out of dark chocolate sensation. It was light and tasty enough. I am not usually a huge dessert person, but occassionaly I will indulge.
Desserts & Champagne: White Star Impérial
Sweet, crisp and lovely…Thanks Moet…
Puerto Rico: Medianoche Sandwich
A choice just to say I had something from the country….I only took one bite…to much bread for me and at this point I was feeling rather full….I should have had the Asopao de Pollo (Chicken Soup with Rice)
Puerto Rico: Bacardi Frozen Torched Cherry Colada
But this! Wow….an adult slurpee that was very cherry tasting……..yum
So what's next.....more days of the F&W Festival?
