Have you attended any of the Chef-Collaboration dinner events presented by The Blind Pig Supper Club, yet? I’ve only been to two, but I’m planning to be at more of them in 2016. With that plan in mind, Dawn and I went to the final Blind Pig Supper of 2015. It was called “Black Sheep,“ and it was fantastically delicious! The venue was the S & W Cafeteria right downtown, which is suoer-c0nvenient for us, and really gorgeous inside!
There were 5 chefs involved — including my ol’ buddy Steven Goff, formerly of King James Pub — who, along with a large staff of helpers, cooks, and servers, put out 8 courses and 2 appetizers. All the food was cooked just right, served hot, and tasted great!
Blind Pig suppers always have a charitable aspect to them, this one helped to raise funds for a young woman who was involved in a horrible bicycle accident. Something I can relate to as a bike rider myself. Here are all the deets on the whole night, from their press release,

It looks like the Gofundme campaign linked to above has maxed out at $5,000 already, but I think that the young woman still needs financial support for her ongoing medical issues, so please click the link to read her story, and contact her if you have anything to give.
Below please find a thumbnail gallery of the pictures I took of the food the night of the event. The lighting in the venue was appropriately dark, which makes for lousy iPhone pictures, but I did what I could. Click on the thumbnails to see fill-size versions.
