The Fort Bend Foodie 04/16/14
Keeping it local
Kudos goes to the Fort Bend County Museum docents for keeping it local with every aspect of planning including the catering at the Lone Star Stomp last Saturday. Our own Braman Winery provided the wine for the evening and the Fort Bend Brewery provided the beer. Catering the food for the event was our long-established Swinging Door Restaurant.
Anybody who has ever eaten at the Swinging Door knows the barbecue is great. But who knew their non-barbecue creations would be equally as good. I won’t mention the asparagus, but the mini cheese pastries and meatballs were delicious. For the meal they served ham and chicken breast in an exceptionally tasty cream sauce. I was amazed at how they could serve chicken breasts so moist, tender and tasty to a Texas-size crowd without being tough and dried-out. The same could be said for the green beans.
Along with that, mashed sweet potatoes, a roll and dessert were served. Did I mention dessert? It was bread pudding. I happen to love a good bread pudding. Let me tell you folks, this was some of the best bread pudding this Texas girl has ever tasted! It was light, moist, sweet and buttery, with a sinfully delicious buttery, cinnamony, caramel sauce. I threw the diet out the window on that one and ate the whole thing. It was that good!
