By all accounts, last week’s Oktoberfest party was a success: there were no leftovers, we saw so many of our favorite people, and all of us at AllSpice had a really good time.
If you came to the AllSpice First Anniversary/ Oktoberfest party last Friday, thank you again for taking time out of your busy weekend to be here. Your presence gave our party a festive atmosphere.
Did you like some of the “spicy bites” you tried at the party? Many of you have asked after the recipes and secret ingredients of the dishes Chef Amy created for the party. Here is the menu, with links to our Recipe section. The recipes, in turn, have links to the ingredients we carry here in the store, and online:
- Red Apple Balsamic BBQ Sauce
- Guinness Mustard
- Brined Turkey
- Beer-Cheese dip with pretzels
- Sweet and Spicy Pepitas
- Pumpkin Seed Pesto
- Spicy Chex Mix
- Cheese and Crackers
- La Mie Bread
- Gingerbread Stout Cake
- Spiced Apple Cake
- Mulled Cider
- The beer came from Madhouse Brewery in Newton, and the wine was from Jasper Winery
- Des Moines Bacon Guy served up his Brats and Bacon [it was so good!]
If you live far away, or if perhaps your social calendar was too fabulously full to sneak a way for a few hours, we thank you, too. All of you, our friends and customers, have made this past year a smashing success, far beyond our wildest, ambitious hopes for our little shop in the East Village. We owe you the hugest debt of gratitude, and we look forward to fill this coming year with many more tasty opportunities to celebrate together.
