Arkansas Cooks and Other Fun Stuff

We’ve just been having a blast here lately now that the summer has given way to a small taste of the autumn to come. We’ve eaten a lot of good food, and we’re very excited about some upcoming events that we hope you’ll all come out to.

In shameless self-promotion news, I recently appeared on the local radio show Arkansas Cooks with Mary Twedt, and we had a very fun time talking about some of the wonderful things going on with Arkansas food. Mary was gracious enough to have me over to her home, and if you’d like to listen to the podcast of our interview, you can do so at the KUAR 89.1 website.

I’d also like to encourage everyone to come down to the Bernice Garden on Thursday, September 13 from 4:30 – 7:30 for the first ever SoMa Second Thursday Food Truck Night. Our very good friend Jeffrey Palsa of The Food Truck has organized this event, and it’ll feature some of our favorite food trucks, Little Rock Urban Farming, and there’s the Green Corner Store Soda Fountain right down the street.

Fans of our food reviews over at the Arkansas Times might be interested in checking out some of our recent posts. We tried an excellent oyster bar in Hot Springs, ate some fish tacos, and had barbecue from a quaint little place in Glenwood called Ron’s. This week’s (9/12/12) Times should have a very interesting review in it including the burger you see to your right — which is actually made from kangaroo. It was a brand new experience for me to eat kangaroo, and I have to say that it was very different but also delicious. We’ve got some new and exciting places in mind coming up, and if there’s someplace you’d like to see us take a look at, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line.

As a final note, we just passed 400 fans over on our Facebook fan page, and that just simply amazes me. Thanks to each an every one of you who read this blog, and know that we always appreciate your feedback, suggestions, and recommendations. As we move into cooler weather, there’s going to be a ton of things around the state for us to do, so if you see us around, be sure to say “hello.” Cheers!
