My friends and I were heading off to the Summersonic concert on Citadel Hill this past weekend. I think that we're such good friends because we share a passion for good food- REALLY good food. So, what does one eat in preparation for an evening rockconcert?
Well, in this circle, it's all about the cheese. We made a trip to the Farmer's market for some rich, maple smoked salmon from St. Mary's River Smokehouse, cream cheese and a chewy baguette from Julien's Bakery. We topped that off with fresh buffalo mozza with raspberries, sweet Italian Fruilano with apple, gouda- stuffed hot chilies and blue cheese-stuffed potatoes, as well as a black truffle-laced white cheddar.
The next day, it was gourmet burgers with brie, caramelized onion gouda and a pound of shitake mushrooms roasted with fresh thyme. We also chowed down on some Indian Point mussels with fresh basil and cream.Next time I want pre-concert eats, I know who I'll choose for my partners in crime.
