Set Your DVR’s Yo! Asheville Episode of Rebel Eats Premieres Tomorrow Night

Posted on the 29 March 2013 by Citizenthymes @citizenthymes

Food Network Star Justin Warner was in Asheville in January to film an episode of his new Food Network Show Rebel Eats. The Asheville episode premiers tomorrow night at 10:00 p.m. on the Food Network.

Warner visited Ultimate Ice Cream and the Blind Pig Supper Club while he was here.  Here is a blurb from Mackensy Lunsford of Eat Scene about Warner’s visit with Blind Pig:

Masterminding the road-food inspired dinner was an all-star team of chefs including Mike Moore of Blind Pig (and the forthcoming Seven Sows Bourbon and Larder), Elliott Moss of the Admiral (who’s helping to build a restaurant on Banks Avenue that will feature Southern-focused fare), and some of the kitchen staff of Storm Rhum Bar, headed by chef Owen McGlynn. Assisting in the production of the food (particularly the whole-hog barbecue) was Justin Warner of Do or Dine in Brooklyn. Warner, winner of the reality show “Food Network Star,” is in town filming part of a series for the Food Network. The title of the venture is still under wraps.

The evening’s menu included creative riffs on truck-stop classics including bacon and eggs (with a sous vide 63-degree egg and coffee gastrique) and a brilliant deconstructed pot roast with potato-bone marrow puree.

It will be good to get a first hand look at how Blind Pig operates because I tend to romanticize the events in my head. Someday I will scrounge up enough change to attend one of their events.

I set my DVR, because I have a life and there is no way I would be at home by myself on a Saturday night watching the Food Network. Just kidding if my friends from out of town weren’t in town I would probably be doing exactly that! I can’t tell you how many times I have cried myself to sleep to Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives marathons on Friday evenings (too much information?).
