Smoked Corned Beef with Crispy Potatoes, Cheese Curds, Pickled Onions, and Beer-Cheese Fondue – $5.50
This nearly perfect dish is a returning favorite. The smoked corned beef is flavorful, tender, and has a great slathering of sauce on it. There are plenty of chips to help pick up the meat and fondue — all three together are a match made in heaven. It’s a must-do item, even though it isn’t new. Honestly, everything at Flavors from Fire is worth doing.
*NEW* Banh Mi Bao with Char-Grilled Asian Skirt Steak, Chicken Liver Aïoli, Pickled Vegetables, and Cilantro – $5.75
The skirt steak is delicious. We would eat this by itself, as it was perfectly seasoned. You can taste the char like they just pulled it off the grill. However, the bao bun was dry and the pickled veggies were very vinegary. We would come back and get this again but ask for it without the bun or just pick the steak off.
*NEW* Rocky Road Chocolate Cake with Marshmallows, Spiced Almonds, and Chocolate Ganache – $4.25
The cake is moist and very rich. The almonds are a little chewy, but the spice is a perfect match for the chocolate. The ganache is in abundance, and the marshmallows are not needed for sweetness (though it wouldn’t quite be rocky road without them). This would go great with a porter or dark beer. We would get this again.
Saugatuck Brewing Company Bonfire Beer, Douglas, MI (5.5% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 oz., $9.00 for 12 oz.
Saugatuck Brewing Company describes their beer, also known as Bonfire Brown Ale: “This classic American Brown Ale is a perfect example of tradition; from its malty, rich body to the touch of light smoke in the finish.”
Four Virtues Bourbon Barrel Zinfandel, California ($18/bottle) – $6.00
Total Wine & More describes this wine: “Deliciously complex and silky smooth Lodi Zinfandel, featuring flavors of bright raspberry, cherry and juicy blackberry, framed by nuanced layers of caramel, vanilla and toasty oak.”
Swine Brine featuring Jim Beam Bourbon ($15/bottle) – $11.00
In 2017, this surprisingly good drink was made with Evan Williams bourbon. In recent years, they’ve switched to the more well-known Jim Beam bourbon, but no matter — it’s still good! The Swine Brine is definitely one of the most unique cocktails offered this year at the festival, and many were surprised at just how good (read: weird) this ended up being. It’s a combination of apple juice, lemon juice, bourbon, and mustard, which sounds pretty terrible. Needless to say, everyone in our group grimaced before they tried it, but they ended up enjoying it more than expected. WARNING: It may not be for everyone. Also, don’t dip the pork in.
