Summer of Sweetness with Mooriah's Ice Cream Truck | Mooriah'S Ice Cream
Becky Brennan, 12/31/2023

Last summer, I had the delightful opportunity to visit Mooriah's Ice Cream Truck at several food truck festivals. Each encounter with this mobile dessert haven was a memorable part of my summer. Mooriah's is not just any ice cream truck; it's a culinary adventure on wheels. The star of my experiences was their chocolate ice cream. It was an absolute treat - creamy, rich, and with a perfect balance of sweetness and authentic chocolate flavor. Unlike many chocolate ice creams that tend to be overly sweet, Mooriah's version was a masterful blend of flavors that catered to both the sweet tooth and the chocolate purist. Their menu wasn't limited to just scoops. Mooriah's also tantalized taste buds with ice cream cookie sandwiches, a delightful twist I eagerly look forward to trying at the next festival. Each festival visit with Mooriah's truck was like finding an oasis in the heat of summer. The joy of enjoying their ice cream amidst the bustling atmosphere of the festivals added an extra layer of pleasure to the experience. Their presence at these events turned them into not just food festivals but a true celebration of summer flavors. For anyone who enjoys the combination of artisanal ice cream and the lively spirit of food truck festivals, Mooriah's is a must-visit. Their truck is more than just a place to get ice cream; it's a mobile destination that brings joy, one scoop at a time.

Culinary Adventures with Sultan Kebab: A Food Truck Worth Chasing | Sultan Kebab Food Truck
Becky Brennan, 12/31/2023

If you're on the lookout for an authentic and delicious kebab experience, the Sultan Kebab Food Truck is a must-try! My adventures with their menu began with their chicken and beef kebabs, and I was immediately impressed. The kebabs were not just tender, but also incredibly juicy and bursting with flavors that tantalize the taste buds. But the star of the show, in my opinion, is their chicken gyros. It's a dish that truly stands out, crafted with care and packed with flavors that transport you straight to the heart of traditional kebab cuisine. Each bite is a perfect blend of spices and tenderness, making it impossible to resist. One of the best things about the Sultan Kebab Food Truck is its mobility. They're present at events all over the state, giving food enthusiasts like me ample opportunities to indulge in their varied menu. Having encountered them at multiple events, I've had the pleasure of sampling a range of their offerings, and each time, I've been more impressed. There are still many items on their menu that I'm eager to try, and my anticipation only grows with each visit. It's a testament to their quality and consistency that I find myself looking forward to my next encounter with their delightful dishes. If you haven't yet experienced the culinary delights of the Sultan Kebab Food Truck, you're missing out on a gem. Highly recommended for anyone who appreciates flavorful, well-prepared kebabs and gyros!

Morning Delights and Local Treasures: A Culinary Journey at Heirloom Market at Comstock Farre | Heirloom Market At Comstock Ferre
Becky Brennan, 12/31/2023

I visited Heirloom Market at Comstock Farre for a quick breakfast and was thoroughly impressed by both their culinary offerings and their charming market. My morning started with a sumptuous breakfast burrito, generously stuffed with eggs, black beans, peppers, onions, tomatoes, and cheese. Each bite was a savory delight, bursting with fresh, well-balanced flavors. The wait for the burrito was noticeable but entirely justifiable, as it was made fresh to order. This attention to freshness and quality was evident in every mouthful. Alongside the burrito, I indulged in a traditional macchiato. It was an absolute treat. The macchiato was prepared in the traditional style, which was a pleasant surprise and a testament to the authenticity and care put into their beverages. It provided the perfect balance of espresso and foam, making each sip a delightful experience. The brief wait for my burrito turned into a golden opportunity to explore the market. Heirloom Market at Comstock Farre offers an array of local products that speak volumes of their commitment to supporting local businesses. From farm-fresh milk to local honey and maple syrup, the variety was impressive. Moreover, their extensive collection of seeds, for which they are well-known, caught my eye and is something garden enthusiasts should definitely check out. Heirloom Market at Comstock Farre is more than just a place to grab a quick bite; it's a delightful experience that combines exceptional food with the charm of a local market. Whether you're there for a meal or just browsing through their products, it's a visit that's well worth your time. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a taste of local flavor and quality!

A Cookie Odyssey: The Unparalleled Delight of Moon Rocks Gourmet Cookies | Moon Rocks Gourmet Cookies
Becky Brennan, 12/31/2023

Throughout this year, my path has crossed several times with the delightful Moon Rocks Gourmet Cookies food truck, and each encounter has been nothing short of a culinary delight. The standout feature of these cookies is their exceptional balance in taste and texture. Let's talk flavors. The S'mores, Oatmeal Raisin Walnut, and Chocolate Chip varieties are my personal favorites. Each bite transports you to a world of exquisite tastes, where the classic flavors are elevated to gourmet levels. The S'mores cookies are a campfire dream, the Oatmeal Raisin Walnut offers a delightful nutty twist, and the Chocolate Chip is a timeless classic perfected. The sweetness of these cookies is masterfully balanced. They're just sweet enough to tantalize your taste buds without overwhelming them. The texture is a marvel in itself - perfectly soft yet maintaining a firmness that leaves you satisfied. They're thick and dense, offering a divine, almost indulgent mouthfeel. But perhaps what sets Moon Rocks Gourmet Cookies apart is their uniqueness. There's a certain je ne sais quoi about these cookies that you can't find anywhere else. They've managed to take a familiar comfort food and turn it into a gourmet experience that's both novel and deeply satisfying. If you're looking for a cookie experience that transcends the ordinary, Moon Rocks Gourmet Cookies & Gift Baskets is where your search ends. Their cookies are not just treats; they're a gourmet adventure for the senses.

Review of Business Interaction with Paul Petrillo of Petrillo's Fairs and Festivals | Petrillo'S Fairs & Festivals
Jason Card, 02/19/2024

Our recent business interaction with Paul Petrillo was, regrettably, less than satisfactory. At BISTRO BUDDY, we strive to foster positive, collaborative relationships with event organizers and vendors, aiming to enhance community events and provide valuable marketing opportunities. Our encounter with Mr. Petrillo, however, did not align with these values. Initially, we proposed a partnership to promote Petrillo's Fairs and Festivals through a complimentary promotional video. This gesture was intended as an olive branch and a means to break the ice, hoping to open doors to future collaborations that benefit our shared audience and the event community. As discussions progressed, an opportunity for sponsorship arose. We extended an offer to Mr. Petrillo to collaborate on this sponsorship, hoping to further our partnership and contribute to the success of his events. Unfortunately, the dynamics of our interaction shifted significantly following this development. Despite agreeing to a meeting to discuss the collaboration, the tone and direction of our engagement took a turn that we found to be unprofessional. The initial spirit of mutual benefit and community support was overshadowed by a focus on immediate personal gain. Our commitment to supporting the event community and providing value through our platform is unwavering. However, the encounter with Mr. Petrillo highlighted a divergent set of values. After careful consideration, we decided not to proceed with the promotional video, especially considering the personal sacrifices it would have required from our team. This decision does not come lightly. We are passionate about the event community and remain committed to promoting positive interactions and opportunities within it. Our experience with Petrillo's Fairs and Festivals serves as a reminder of the importance of aligning with partners who share our values of collaboration, respect, and community support. We sincerely hope this review serves as constructive feedback and encourages a reflection on the importance of professional conduct in business interactions. At BISTRO BUDDY, we will continue to advocate for the interests of our community and work towards fostering a positive environment for all involved.

Innovative twist on a breakfast classic. | Fire On The Mountain Smokehouse
Becky Brennan, 12/31/2023

My visit to Fire on the Mountain Smokehouse was not just a culinary delight, but also a journey into a cozy, welcoming atmosphere that made the experience all the more memorable. The Smoked Philly Cheese Steak Benny, the star of my meal, was a brilliant reinvention of the classic breakfast, featuring thinly shaved, richly smoked steak, coupled with a vibrant mix of onions, peppers, and mushrooms. Resting atop perfectly toasted English muffins were two exquisitely poached eggs, their yolks tenderly oozing out, mingling with the steak and vegetables. The American cheese hollandaise sauce was a stroke of genius, adding a creamy, cheesy depth that perfectly complemented the smokiness of the steak, elevating the dish into a harmonious blend of flavors. But what truly set this dining experience apart was the atmosphere of Fire on the Mountain. The place exuded a cozy charm, with an ambiance that felt like a warm embrace. The staff added to this welcoming feel with their exceptional friendliness, making me feel right at home from the moment I stepped in. Their attentive service and genuine warmth amplified the pleasure of the meal. The Smoked Philly Cheese Steak Benny at Fire on the Mountain Smokehouse is a must-try not only for its culinary brilliance but also for the delightful dining environment they've cultivated. It's a place where the food is matched by the heartwarming experience, making every visit a moment to cherish.

Paradise Found: A Foodie's Experience at Paradise Island Food Truck | Paradise Island Food Truck
Becky Brennan, 12/31/2023

As soon as I approached the vibrant and inviting Paradise Island Food Truck, I knew I was in for a treat. The aroma of grilled meats and spices filled the air, promising a delightful culinary experience. Kebabs (Chicken and Beef): These kebabs were nothing short of spectacular. Both the chicken and beef were seasoned with a masterful blend of spices that tantalized the taste buds. The meat was grilled to absolute perfection, striking a delicate balance between juicy tenderness and a lightly charred exterior. Each bite was a harmonious symphony of flavors. Empanada (Steak and Cheese): The empanada was a revelation. Piping hot and freshly deep-fried, its golden crust broke open to reveal a generous filling of tender, succulent steak and lusciously creamy cheese. The combination of the flaky pastry with the rich and hearty filling was an absolute delight. Piña Colada: This drink was a tropical escapade in a cup. Sweet, creamy, and freshly made, it provided a refreshing and indulgent escape. The balance of pineapple and coconut flavors was spot on, creating a beverage that was both invigorating and soothing. Horchata: A delightful surprise, this horchata was a creamy dream with a subtle hint of cinnamon. Served over ice, it was the perfect antidote to a warm day. The flavors were well-balanced, making each sip a creamy, cinnamon-infused delight. Paradise Island Food Truck is a culinary gem. Each item on their menu is crafted with care and expertise, resulting in an unforgettable food experience. Whether you're craving savory grilled meats or sweet, refreshing beverages, this food truck is a must-visit. Highly recommended for food enthusiasts looking for flavors that transport you straight to culinary paradise!

CT Beer Fest 2023: A Journey Through Hops and Happiness

Welcome to the visual diary of the Connecticut Beer Festival 2023, an event that brought together a vibrant tapestry of flavors, fun, and festivity, all under the banner of the Connecticut Brewers Guild. This album is more than just a collection of photographs; it's a story of community, craftsmanship, and celebration, encapsulating a day where the earthy aroma of hops mingled with the melodies of live music and the spirit of Earth Day.

Celebrating Earth Day with Every Sip

As you flip through these pages, you'll notice that this year's festival was not just about savoring the finest brews but also about honoring our planet. Held on Earth Day, the event intertwined environmental consciousness with the joy of beer tasting, reminding us of the delicate balance between indulging in our passions and preserving our world.

65 Breweries, Infinite Flavors Each photograph is a tribute to the 65 breweries that participated, showcasing their unique stories, brewing artistry, and the people behind the pint. From classic lagers to experimental ales, the range of flavors and styles was as diverse as the brewers themselves. These images capture the essence of their craft – the meticulous selection of ingredients, the precise brewing processes, and the shared joy of creating something extraordinary.

Rhythms and Brews: The Soundtrack of the Festival As you delve deeper into this album, you'll feel the pulse of live music that graced the event. Bands and artists, local and beyond, provided the perfect soundtrack to the festival, creating an atmosphere that was both electrifying and intimate. Each photo echoes the chords and melodies that filled the air, adding an auditory dimension to this visual journey.

? A Community United by Beer ?

Beyond the beers and the bands, these images capture the heart of the festival – the people. From enthusiasts and connoisseurs to curious first-timers, the festival was a melting pot of individuals united by their love for good beer. Smiling faces, clinking glasses, and animated conversations fill these pages, a testament to the community spirit that the Connecticut Brewers Guild fosters.

Memories Preserved ?

As you reach the end of this album, we hope that the memories of CT Beer Fest 2023 linger on. Whether you were a participant, a brewer, or just an admirer of the craft beer community, these photographs are a gateway back to those moments of joy, discovery, and unity. Until the next pour at CT Beer Fest 2024, let's raise a glass to the memories made and the friendships forged.
