A while back, Mike won a Twitter contest run by Matt Jennings, Chef/Owner of Farmstead and La Laitierie here in Providence (and if you’re not following @cheesematt on Twitter, you should be). The prize: tickets to last night’s Brewmaster’s Dinner with Brooklyn Brewery‘s Garrett Oliver at La Laiterie. It was a wonderful evening filled with, as you would expect, fabulous food and drink, and to my surprise and delight, we even shared a table with Ingrid and Josh of Rhode Island 100 Mile fame.
Sadly, the low light didn’t make for great photos, but trust me when I say that I am still dreaming of the house smoked pork jowl on local hop biscuits, the bone marrow-filled pierogi crowning a delicious pumpkin potage, the silky bresaola topping an autumn salad, and the duo of pheasant, not to mention the “Black & Tan” dessert course served with our favorite Black Chocolate Stout. And don’t even get me started on the “Manhattan Project” brew, which was out of this world. Our sincere thanks go out to Matt and everyone involved in pulling off last night’s event – we are so glad we could be there.
