Amigos 2.0

Posted: February 4, 2013 in Drinks, Events, Food

Last Monday “Amigos de Pinxto” with Sean Brock really embodied what the whole event is all about; getting cool peeps together to hang out, enjoy cocktails and bites of food with friends.

 

Our guest chef did not let us down- the guy showed up with a 2 year aged Ossabaw country ham for Christ sakes!!!

He also brought; BBQ pork ribs from his restaurant Husk and fried pickled green tomatoes.

 

Not only was the food great but the conversation was non-stop laughs the whole night- everyone was pumped to have Sean there and to taste his food.

I met Sean a few times with Mike Sheerin from Trencherman and we all totally hit it off in a “bromantic” sort of way. I really respected his cooking and his approach to food and I asked if he’d be open to coming up and doing an Amigos with us. He said yes, but I figured it was the liquor talking…but sure enough- he came thru and hosted what turned out to be a standing room only night.

Having a guy like Sean in, has created the kind of buzz we need to bring more and more talented chefs from around the country together to introduce their food to Chicago.

Stay tuned…
