This past Thursday saw Denver yelpers gather at Jonesy's EatBar in Uptown for the seventh installment of the 2012 Secret Supper Club. Dozens of diners came out to enjoy a four course meal prepared by Chef Beau and two wine pairing from Canyon Wind Cellars in Palisade, CO. The wines, a rose and a petit verdot were both a smashing success, so much so that Vicki P has already been procuring bottles from her local liquor stores!
And the food was just as pleasing to the palate. Yelpers started out with a first course of a Bacon Bleu Potato Cake (apple wood smoked bacon,caramelized onions, Bleu cheese crumbles, dressing and chives) and followed it up with an Arugula Farro Salad (baby arugala, heirloom tomatoes, farro, fresh mozzarella, and champagne vinaigrette.) The main course of dirty rice, shrimp, craw fish, andoulie sausage, onions and cilantro cream with chipoltle black bean puree all stuffed into bell peppers was no slouch either. But, for many attendees dessert stole the show! The "Red, White and Bluebarb" – bread pudding with strawberries, blueberries, and home-grown rhubarb topped with Lucky Charms ice cream (from Sweet Action) and a cherry glaze left many yelpers declaring a new favorite sweet around town. As Shea S yelped, "Anyone have some extra stars they can lend me? This dinner lived up to my expectations and then some!"
