1. Columbus Food Adventures: Columbus Meat Lovers Tour

August 23, 2012 - February 21, 2013
Thursday 6-9:30 p.m.
$60 Advance reservations required
Departs from Schiller Park Community Center
1069 Jaeger St., Columbus , 43206
From the website: Columbus has a lot to offer the carnivore, and not just in the form of its juicy burgers and famous sausages. On our Meat Lover's Tour, we'll encounter one of the most creative chefs in the city using farm fresh cuts and innovative preparations, a pair of ethnic cuisines displaying novel uses for a wide range of proteins, and a smokehouse with a long history of preparing European-style smoked and cured meats.
This event is (self evidently?) far from vegetarian friendly and is a delicious overview of some of the most delicious carnivorous delights to be found in the city! Our stops include: Skillet - The darling of Columbus foodies, Skillet is about far more than just breakfast! Chef Caskey will take the opportunity to display his brilliance with meat preparations. Thurn's - A behind the scenes look at this hundred plus year old business in which an astounding variety of meats and sausages are cured and smoked according to traditional European and family recipes. Apna Bazaar - This unassuming Pakistani market hides an exceptional restaurant where we will see, first hand, how they use the art of tandoor cooking to prepare delectably moist and tender kebabs. San Su - At this Korean restaurant, we'll experience two types of traditional beef dishes, prepared in the Korean BBQ style. Don't miss our Moshi Restaurant Review.
