Last week popular Chef Keith “Buttons” Hicks hosted a Soul Food Month celebration media preview dinner featuring his latest culinary creations for summer. The delightful evening featured not only delicious entrée samplings, but also drinks and live jazz.
The menu for the evening featured simple but delicious appetizers such as Wedgeburg Salad and the chef’s spin on Fried Green Tomatoes. Also, the flavorful Josh’s Pasta was created in honor of the Chef’s late brother. Entrees included Fire Grilled Chicken, Jerked-Up Chicken Skewers and Oscar’s Surfy Turfy.
The highlight of the evening to me was the Sweet Potato Pie served with Bananas Foster. It was an explosion of flavor in your mouth from the first bite. I am not really a banana person so was just being polite. I’d drive across town just to order this dessert – it was that good.
