I was toying around with the idea of doing a fried bologna sandwich in some form. I know they are sorta famous in that part of the country. I had my first taste of one last time I was in Ohio. It was really tasty. I thought they could be easily made into some sort of appetizer/small bite. Like a "slider". Maybe even do it open face style.

I figure sourcing bologna of proper quality should be easy to do on our shopping excursion. Look for some good pickles and the right kind of cheese, too. Maybe make mustard? I think Hennes has some recipe from "Modernist Cuisine" that could work. Possibly use bread by Tino?

Some more new news: Chef Steve Schimoler is truly disappointed that we won't get to eat his food this time around, however, he's extended an invitation for us to tour his under-construction restaurant Crop (where he says he can be found practically 24/7 these days), located in a historic building in Ohio City, during the weekend; this may be part of Friday's daytime activities. Steve is an amazing chef with many great stories and we Clevelanders have been waiting for months for Crop to be completed, so this should be a special visit.

I'm happy to help out with any course.

Rick Stick Noodles

Would those be Rice Stick Noodles? :smile: I was thinking of doing the Mac and Cheese recipe from Modernist Cuisine as a side dish. We've got great local ingredients for it, including some fantastic local cheeses. But maybe two pasta dishes would be overkill (though David's dish is quite different from mac 'n' Cheese!)

Janet, gimlets will be most appreciated!

I think I'll wait until we hit the market to decide exactly what I'm making. If inspiration comes before then, I'll update here accordingly.

That said, like JAZ, I also plan on mixing up a libation or two (in between sipping gimlets, of course). I've got a few in mind that I think might be a lot of fun.

If people are interested in cocktails, I can bring some homemade lime cordial and make gimlets. I'm still figuring out what else to make, if anything.

Yes, please do. I haven't had a Gimlet in probably 30 years. I think it's time.

With all these cocktails it's probably just as well we only have one main dish volunteer so far, we aren't going to be able to remember the meal anyway! :wink:

No way man, I'm going to stand around and watch David make a stir-fry for 30!

I was planning for 40! It's an easy dish so the biggest task will go to Hennes-frying the rice stick noodles, and Jeff-plating.

I wonder if I can plate with a cocktail in my hand?

Folks - please bear with me - tough week (tooth extraction tomorrow, PT for bone on bone arthritis in right knee Weds, law office event on Thurs) - I have the preliminary menu for Sunday's farewell feast, and it looks beautiful; as soon as Jeff says "done" I'll post. The Sunday afternoon meal will be $30 including tax, gratuity extra and payment will be made at the event. It will be a six course plated tasting featuring the beautiful produce of the AMP 150 on-site garden (and fully vegetarian options will be provided for each course as requested).

I'm trying to keep the Eventbrite fees and complications down, so the only event that I'll actually collect money on there for is the Thursday Tremont Crawl. Total cost will be about $70 including tax and tip for food; valet parking if you need it will be extra. I'll also have the non-pay in advance events there to help the headcounting process.

Friday's dinner at GHT will be about $65+tt and can be paid at the restaurant; parking again is not included and will run up to $8 for the 4th Street Valet. Menu in process, but be prepared for the fabulous Pig Face as well as Clams with Foie Gras.

I am anticipating time to complete this tomorrow from home after my dental surgery (office internet was down today, as if I didn't have enough tzorres).

The only "maybe" on my list is Fat Guy - Steve - I so hope you will be joining us this year; we'll have some amazing eats! Please advise when you can.

More to come very soon. Can't wait to see you all!
