St. Louis’ food-centric social media outlets were abuzz this week with a chef Q&A, a new website for a vaunted food truck and some interesting chalk art. Enjoy our five picks – we sure had a good time finding them!
1. A Q&A with Chef Josh Galliano
Well, now we know the juicy details behind his fried chicken pop-up success. St. Louis chef Josh Galliano dished to Soapbox, a chef-written digital magazine, about the tunes that keep him going in the kitchen, how he uses food to romance his wife and much more.
2. Vin de Set’s Pink Plate Specials
Vin de Set tweeted about the Pink Plate specials they’re offering during October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For each special purchased, a donation will be made to the Siteman Cancer Center.
3. Schlafly Tap Room’s New Chalk Art
Did you know there’s a Goddess of Coffee Stout? Neither did we, until Schlafly Beer Instagrammed (is that a verb now?) a photo (pictured left) of the chalk art connected with the November release of their highly anticipated brew, which is made with Kaldi’s Coffee. The cool, slightly offbeat original is currently on view at the Tap Room.
4. Five Bistro’s Five-Course Pairing Celebrating Extra Virgin’s Olive Oils
Want to help Extra Virgin, An Olive Ovation celebrate their fifth birthday? Five Bistro is holding a five-course pairing dinner involving five French wines and five of the shop's olive oils on Thu., Oct. 25. For details and a menu check this tweet or Five Bistro's website.
5. Guerrilla Street Food’s New Website
Guerrilla Street Food is St. Louis’ only Filipino food truck, and apparently there’s a secret energy source in their adobo. Not only did they recently hobnob with Guy Fieri for a spot on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, play music at their own viewing party and carry on with their usual serving schedule, they announced the launch of a new website. Phew!
