But if you couldn’t make it or want to see the episode again, here it is!
Last night was cause for celebration for Order/fire’s friend and guest Clark Barlowe as he celebrated the third anniversary of his restaurant, Heirloom. A four course dinner was served to over 50 people who attended the feast. Clark had good friend Chef Kyle McKnight to cook along side. Each dish was paired with a beer from Fullsteam Brewery in Durham, NC. Fullsteam’s Chief Optimist Sean Wilson was in attendance to speak about each beer and why it was chosen to pair with each dish.
The meal was inspired by Betty Feezor’s WBTV Carolina Recipes cookbook.
Amuse – Kyle’s Hotdogs with Betty’s Chili w/ Fullsteam’s Common Ground
1st course – Raw Cauliflower salad and Overnight Tomatoes w/ Fullsteams’ Paycheck
2d course – NC Clams w/ Fullsteams Humidity
