Chef Brian Lofink is understandably very excited by his latest special at Kraftwork. Last night I had his chicken fried sweetbreads and waffle, with Crystal’s ramps and maple demi glace. The dish is an excellent balance of sweet and savory. The perfectly fried sweetbreads will turn any offal novice into a gluton, demanding “more organs now!”
Lofink has the sweetbreads on special this weekend at the Fishtown bar and he says, “Im not scared to say I’ll stack it up to any sweetbread dish in the city and knock it down.”
Rob Mitchell, owner of the Cow and the Curd has been working with Drexel University’s Food Lab to get his cheese curds out to the masses.
The Curd Caprese Salad, served with classic curds, basil aioli, aged balsamic vinegar, oven dried tomatoes and micro basil salad will be available for a limited time only. So get out there and get yours while you can.
The curd salad will also be available at the Sidecar Bar & Grille starting next Friday, April 24th.
I was lucky enough to try the "salad" yesterday with some friends and it was a hit. Just one word of advice, don't pop the whole curd in your mouth at once, bite halfway through and stretch that curd out. It just makes it even better.
Sean and Andrew Arsenault, the twins behind the kickstarter to raise money for Brewery ARS, have hit their goal of raising $30,000 (it was all Rose!). To celebrate the end of their campaign they’re throwing a “Kill the Kickstarter Campaign” party at Kraftwork in Fishtown.
You can check out the event on Facebook, but here are the details: the twins will be serving their “Salted Caramel Chocolate Stout” and “Old Stoop” (a “lightly smoked dark ale infused with wildflower honey”), and the party starts at 5:30.
You can still donate to their campaign and get cool stuff like t-shirts, growlers, or even a pizza party.
