Food Feedback Friday: the tour, the pour, and more

It’s starting to get chilly out there, and while I’m hoping we aren’t forced to live through another ice apocalypse this year, I certainly welcome the cooler weather. So what’s going on around town? Here’s a taste:

Michael was less than pleased with his meal at the new Pancetta at the downtown Marriot. I am just happy that he was asked to bite the bullet and review this one and not me...fear not, we’ll be reviewing much better food in the weeks to come.

The 2nd Annual Little Rock Local Food Tour is happening November 9th. The event is put on by the Arkansas Local Food Network. This year they’ll be exploring the Hillcrest area, certainly one of the finest areas to eat around town. You should “expect garden activities, backyard chickens, bees, cured meats, artisan treats, scavenger hunts, and Fall harvest!” Partners include the Hillcrest Farmers Market, Mylo Coffee Co., Pie-Cycle, Hillcrest Artisan Meats, the Pulaski Heights School Garden, the Victory Garden, the Sweet Life Apiary, Garden Works, Palette Catering, kBird food truck, and Little Rock Urban Farming. Tickets are $25, children under 10 are free. Tickets and more information may be found at this link.

Of course, there’s the highly anticipated Arkansas Times Craft Beer Festival approaching. November 1st at the Argenta Farmer’s Market. Tickets are $35 dollars in advance or $40 at the door. Pick ‘em up at this link.

Lastly, this Saturday will be the last time you’ll be able to catch Hannah and the Little Rock Pie Cycle for a while. She’s teaming up with Loblolly Creamery to put on the “Halloween Harvest A La Mode.” Hand pies and ice cream, sounds almost too good to be true. There’ll be candy, pumpkins, caramel apples, pie walks, and face painting. The event is going down at the Green Corner Store on South Main St., this Saturday, October 26th, from 6 to 8 pm. Details here.

AND…it’s Food Feedback Friday. You know the drill.

  • The Kraft Mac & Cheese Food Hack

    Recently, we held another food hack competition, taking another childhood classic, Kraft Mac & Cheese, and tried to turn it on its head, creating something entirely new and unique. Again, the results were pretty awesome. The rules were simple: Use a whole box of mac and cheese, both noodles and cheese powder, and turn it into any sinister monstrosity imaginable. We had a vote via the Eat Arkansas Facebook page to crown a winner. Here's what was submitted:
