Cherry, Bourbon and Bacon, Oh My 08/22/2011
Chef Katie Coleman has been dazzling us with her fresh, easy and delicious food and drink pairings. After we tasted her fresh tomato tequila cocktail, we had to come back for more. Katie graciously welcomed us back to Durham Spirits Company where she treated us to a symphony of flavors featuring cherries, bourbon and homemade bacon!
In these two videos, Katie first prepares a modern take on the southern classic the Mint Julep by adding fresh cherries. Then she pairs this incredible cocktail with a crostini topped with cherries with bacon, shallots and goat cheese.
One of the things we love about Bull City Burger and Brewery is that they make everything by hand - and we mean everything: not only are the burgers freshly ground and hand shaped every day, but the mayo, the mustard, the pickles and the fries are all made in-house as well. Oh, and that delicious lager is homemade by the BCBB crew as well, right in downtown Durham, NC.
When Chef Seth Gross decided to do burgers, he decided to do everything his way, right down to the hamburger and hot dog buns. Take a peek into the kitchen of BCBB to see the love going into every hot bun!
