Huntsville's Restaurant Week

Restaurant week is in full swing! The Huntsville-Madison County Visitors Bureau is doing their part spreading the word  on their facebook page where you can find participating area restaurant to try and featuring some of the many amazing lunch & dinner specials being offered.  Today I had the pleasure of attending a free to the public event...It was a cooking demonstration by two spectacular chefs...


Chef Robert Charles of The Scene Restaurant at Monaco Pictures in Bridgestreet  was up first...Chef Charles delighted the crowd with his Maple Glazed Pork Loin sandwich...It was delicious and savory....with Chef Charles sharing with us that he could have chosen many different cheeses' for this sandwich but "There is nothing finer than some good ole American Cheese"...Chef Charles is originally from Denver but now calls Huntsville home with his wife (a native of Huntsville) and their young child...

To end our afternoon on a sweet note Chef Merle Phillips of The Eaves Restaurant was there to share her decadent Banana Foster...She was proud to say this rich desert used butter.."Yes I said butter" (salted butter) not overly ripe bananas, cinnamon, brown sugar, cream and a combination of liquors that will have you intoxicated with the flavors...This dish makes a fabulous presentation and my mother along with the other visitors seem to enjoy ever drop...Chef Phillips is a native of New Jersey but has some Southern blood via her grandmother's Georgia roots..



I can't wait to try some of the other dishes these Chefs offer at their restaurants and this week is a great time to give them a try!
