Brunch Gets a Latin Touch

In Uncategorized on September 18, 2010 at 12:53 pm

This week our weekly brunch at Nomad Bar will feature a Spanish Classic, a Chilean staple and a waffle also inspired by a classic South American sweet. We will serve a mixed Paella with chicken, sausage and seafood. We will also feature Pastel de Choclo a beef casserole with a basil and corn topping. Our featured waffle is reminiscent of the South American sweet, Confites de Zanahoria made with carrot, carmel and sweet coconut. We will have a summer tomato salad and the favorites too!

The beer brunch returns this Sunday! Each year we salute beer for brunch on Labor Day weekend. Why? Well it goes like this, fourteen years ago I worked at Waterloo Brewing Company along with several friends. My friends and I celebrate those times, football, great beer, damn fine food and each others company in what ranks as a major holiday for most if not all of us. Hell,  we have a pal that flies from New York each year. Thanks Sam!  I wanted to bring some of this to those that enjoy Traveling Bistro each Sunday. So we bring beer to brunch and let it flow throughout the featured items. This week we will  braised beef in Stone Ruination. We will roast mushrooms with a Blue Cheese and Avery White Rascal sauce. We will smoke some pork loin and glaze it with Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock and herbs. Pasta Salad with a sweet and sour dressing made from New Belgium‘s La Folie, anyone? The RockStar of the show will likely be the featured waffle made with Uncle Billy’s Insomniac Coffee Stout. We will have the favorites as usual and Heaven’s Radio will be playing their hillbilly gospel. Hope to see you there.
