Talk about a great backyard summer party!
Summer is here! The calendar might not say June 21st yet. But, summer is most definitely here. Along with the heat, humidity and frequent downpours comes a recent Sarasota summer tradition. The Shamrock’s Summer Chef Jam.
For the uninitiated amongst you, here’s the recipe. One bottomless pint of Florida craft beer, plus three small plates prepared by some of Sarasota’s best chefs, stir in musical accompaniment by DJ Andy Viohl and serve! That is a summertime recipe you can really get onboard with.
This year, as in years past, The Shamrock will be hosting some of our cities most accomplished chefs. The lineup includes recent James Beard nominee, Steve Phelps of Indigenous. All of the chefs will be cooking out of the Ri Quisimo food truck. Taking a chef out of his usual habitat and dropping him into a food truck can yield pretty creative and delicious results.
Things get started on Monday June 16th with Chef Kyle Harrington from Libby’s Cafe + Bar. Are you thinking, “Hey a sneak peek at the menu would be nice”. Done! Here’s what Chef Kyle will be cooking up. Korean Food Truck Sticky Ribs, Bulgogi Tacos and Karubi Pork Gyoza. Not bad for an opening act.
Here’s the schedule for the remainder of the summer. Get your pencil and calendar ready. You won’t want to miss a week.
