Big Nate and I just got back from Euphoria Greenville SC. Great time, got to spend time with some old chef buddies, Sctott Crawford Umpstead NC, Steven and Spencer Devereaux SC, and Frank Lee Charleston SC.
Big Nate and I cooked with Scott Crawford at Rick Erwins West End. Great Menu, Hawaiian Blue Prawns, Alaskan Halibut, Palmetto Pigeon, and Kobe Short Rib. Dinner went great and we had a blast.
Sunday morning Scott and I did a cookoff with a couple of pastry chefs, battle Monkfish, shrimp, plantains, and coconut milk. Pastry chef David Guas and I came out on top. It was the bacon emulsion that took us over the top on this one!!
Finally on the fun side of things, besides all the cooking and great wine we drank. Big Nate, myself and the rest of the chefs got to go to BMW(plant in Greenville) and take some M3′s and M5′s out on their performance track. Man way cool, with no speed limits, and no cops. Fun time. Hope to get back for 2010!!
