The Kitchen is a jack of all trades and if you haven’t been to an event in their space yet, you really are missing out!

For our third visit (as a group at least) to The Kitchen, we got to try our hands at creating our own menu for Taco Tuesday! We paired up with Be The Sign and each blogger got to come up with their own culturally themed tacos, quesadillas, sides, and beverages. Some of us pulled from our heritage while otherse were inspired by favorite cuisines. With the help of the knowledgeable chefs at The Kitchen, it was exciting to see our ideas come to life!

For more info on how Taco Tuesday works, check our first post about it HERE.

Be the Sign and Jordan of Midwest Foodfest joined forces to create the “Nacho Choice Mine” Loaded Pizza Nachos. How did this come to be? Well, Be The Sign was launching that new slogan and Jordan loves pizza. Who can deny fusion pizza nachos?

Other delicious sides included the Korean beef bulgogi bowl by 2 Hangry Chicks, Brazilian bolinho de arroz by Eat Play Cbus, and a Polynesian pulled pork quesadilla by Cook.Eat.Explore.

For the tacos Fervent Foodie designed a Vietnamese tofu bahn mi, alt.eats.columbus an English ale battered fish & chips, Cbus Food Authority a Greek lamb gyro, Columbus Culinary Connection a German sausage, and the Cbus Food Bloggers as a whole a Thai Peanut chicken salad.

In the background, Nikki of Sweetly Cbus cannot wait to dig in!

Monika of Maani’s Indian Cuisine was also there and contributed an Indian taco that blew our socks off. Fun fact, you can actually buy their products in the frozen section of various stores in town such as Whole Foods, Fresh Thyme, Weiland’s, Lucky’s, Dorothy Lane, and The Hills Market Worthington.

Feeling thirsty looking at all those tacos? Thyme for Cocktails and Sweetly Cbus had our backs with their contribution of a Mexican strawberry-rhubarb paloma and an American boozy root beer-rumchata float (respectively)!

But wait we had to get a dessert in there! It should come as no surprise that The Spiffy Cookie represented with a Slovak apple-peach pierogi pie.

What was most exciting was to see the customers ordering (and loving) the items on the menu and subsequently selling out – over half of the menu in fact! Clearly, we know good food and The Kitchen knows how to make it a reality.
