electrolux

Another foodbuzz event and this time it was a meet and greet at Relais & Chateuax in Midtown to hear about Electrolux appliances and eat some tasty treats brought to us by the River Cafe. This was fun and it was like a little gallery opening except we had name tags, which actually make things so-much-easier. I hate that I cant remember names, like tonights chef for example, but I remember everyone who had a name tag. The appliances are pretty cool and I will post a youtube later about that but for now here is the food.



The theme was holiday since we are moving into the season and our bouches were amused with this little spoonfull of braised pork, squash and a toasted marshmallow.



Tasty indeed and I have to say my bouche was amused, various other tasty bits were passed about and the food bloggers went crazy, this was a tapenade with goat cheese and pimento.



We talked turkey and how to cook it, when we all learned how we were given a sandwich.



Dont let me forget that we had risotto, oh yeah, real good risotto with a few of my favorite mushrooms, this, my friends, made the whole journey worth it. This risotto was - and I hate to say things like this - sublime. It was. It was everything about the rice that you want, it was all about the mushroom that you desire and it just screamed cheese in the softest most cheesiest way, it was creamy and chewy and risotto-y as it should have been.




The coupe de torchon had to be the pumpkin creme brule. I wont even say too much about this little masterpiece. I am making this bad boy for my next whatever. I had a great time and I was happy and fortunate to be invited.

Wow, you're certainly quick with the review of tonight's FoodBuzz event! Can't wait to see the YouTube video of the stuff I saw in person. ;-)

I'll be sure to link to your review when I post my blog entry tomorrow! If you give you proper credit, would you mind if I put that picture of the creme brulee on Taste As You Go?

I don't think you'd see Electrolux holding that little soiree in my town... 2 years ago, they closed a plant that employed over 2,200 people... The food looked good, though!

Zen Chef said...

So, Foodbuzz fed you twice in less than a week!?
Can't beat that. Looks great! Damn, I wish I had a job with normal hours so I could attend these things.

Michelle said...

I'll snag the photo(s) from your blog. Why make things complicated? :-)

The Diva on a Diet said...

Hi there doggybloggy - great to meet you last night. And, I agree, the risotto was sublime. Love your write-up of the event ... you certainly managed to convey the flavor of the evening ... and more succinctly than I, I might add! Great post!

Cheers.

Duane Reade said...

It was great talking to you at the event. I'm definitely going to check out the disco ball donut battle video. And I think that was the first time in my life that I've had properly prepared turkey -- it may have made up for a lifetime of tragic Thanksgivings!

Michelle Ann said...

Love the pumpkin brulee... What does an amuse bouche look like anyway?

doggybloggy said...

The BD: it only seems fancy....

jessie: its such a great idea

The diva on a diet: it was nice to meet you too, I guess my lazy typing has its upside

duane reade: same to you, and I am glad your turkey experience is improved

michelle ann: serious? an amuse bouche can look like all kinds of things...

Mandi said...

Harmony said...

LOL...thanks for catching up, I knew you would do it sooner or later. ;-)

Patsyk said...

I desperately wanted to go to this, but getting into NYC on a weeknight is tough for me. :(

Looks like a fantastic time though... maybe next time!

Comestiblog said...

Marvelous evening, wasn't it? Great post and superb pictures as always. We've got to stop meeting on the escalator, though--people will start talking! Also, congrats on attaining the coveted number one slot.

doggybloggy said...
