ExpoCulinaria is less than a week away


Fri, May 9th, 2014
Posted in Peterson Arts & Culture

The menu is set. The cooks are ready to go. The wine and beer sommeliers have picked the beverages.

ExpoCulinaria is less than a week away, and we’re ready for our guests. This annual experience of taste promises to be an evening of incredible flavors, a little night music and mingling in the classic, rustic setting of Hoiland Mill. It’s an event that is sure to create memories with friends old and new.

Here’s a summary of what our guests can expect.

Culinary professional May Mylnczak will show us that brats are not just for the backyard barbecue with three very different renditions of the basic brat — brats with dijon fundue caramelized onion, brats topped with sauerkraut and a sesame ginger mustard sauce, and brats fired in beer batter with a chipotle aioli sauce. Mary will complete the sweet and savory selections with something decidedly sweet — chocolate pots de creme.

But the experience of taste doesn’t end there. Guests will enjoy samples from Rushford Peterson Valley restaurants, area vineyards, brewers and local beverage distributors. Foods you’ll be sampling include lefse appetizers, ribs, ice cream, chicken burritos, homemade pies, barbecued brisket, New York style cheesecake, and much more. So bring your appetite and enjoy what’s being cooked up by Burdey’s Cafe, Chiggy’s Liquor, The Creamery Pizza & Ice Cream, Four Daughters Vineyard, Lynndyn Bridge Restaurant, Norsland Lefse & Bakery, Pam’s Off-Sale Liquor, Pearl Street Brewery, Rushford Foods Deli, Shawnee’s Bar & Grill, Stumpy’s Restaurant & Bar, Wenonah Brewing Company, Winneshiek Wildberry Winery

Tickets are available at Rushford Foods in Rushford and online at www.rushfordchamber.com via PayPal. Tickets are $25. In addition to the food, beer and wine, each ExpoCulinaria guest will receive a wine glass and a handmade maple appetizer plate engraved with the ExpoCulinaria logo – a terrific keepsake that you can utilize over and over again. We hope you will join us on May 17!
