Entrees

Shiner Bock Bacon Tomato Meatloaf Sauce

A meatloaf sauce from Eastside Café combining bacon and Shiner Bock. This isn’t your mother’s meatloaf—the Shiner Bock bacon tomato sauce will make you a believer in meatloaf again! An added bonus: the char on the meatloaf brings out the smokiness of the bacon in the Shiner Bock tomato sauce.

Sides

Mac & Ernie's Ancho Chili Honey Sauce

Here's the sauce that makes Chef Naylene's famous Ancho Chili Honey basted Quail so in demand. FYI this is Diamond H Quail - raised without hormones and antibiotics. Thanks to Mac & Ernie's in Tarplay, TX for sharing! Catch them on Episode 10 of our TV show!

Desserts

1886 Chocolate Cake

This recipe dates back to the 1970’s, when the Heritage Society of Austin operated the 1886 Lunchroom (now 1886 Café & Bakery). The chocolate cake is a beloved confectionary – definitely a must-have for guests and diners.

Starters

Goat Cheese, Pine Nut, Orange & Fennel Squash Blossoms

These crispy squash blossoms from Marx Foods really shine! Filled with a creamy cheese filling, spiked with fresh orange zest and pine nuts, and finished with a light dusting of fennel pollen. This version of the filling has a strong orange & nutty flavor with a very light goat cheese tang. Try dipping and frying all sorts of fresh veggies for an exciting cornucopia of accompaniments.

Authentic Munchener Apfel Pfannekuchen

A recipe I've waited 15 years to get my hands on! Translated from an Old World cookbook and adapted at The Magnolia Pancake Haus.

Entrees

Yucatan Chicken Jicama Tacos

The jicama tortillas steal the show on these zesty chicken tacos from H-E-B Cooking Connection. Chef Adrian shows you how! The avocado sauce adds a few carbs to the taco, but not many! With or out without the salsa they’re still really good!

Salads

Spicy, Sweet and Tangy Cucumber Salad

The beauty of the recipe besides its simplicity is that it is so customizable for different tastes. Tweaking the amount of sugar or chilies makes it your own. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. The longer they marinate in the vinegar, the softer and brinier they will become. Thanks to Chef Greg Martin at Bistro Menil. :)
