Dr. Brownstone Sweet Summer LuvLuv Festival

The Spring House in Winston Salem, NC for the past five years has offered S I X days of deliciousness. Chef Timothy Grandinetti—aka Dr. Brownstone invites highly talented chefs to serve their food at the event. The six course grill inspired food along with the creative cocktails is one night you will not forget-Or my taste buds for that matter. I encourage anyone in the area who has not yet attended one to plan to do so next year. It was a delicious experience I was able to share with my husband. We started the night out with some cocktails and appetizers served for the first hour while enjoying the band. The first one I tried was the blueberry mojito- very refreshing and cold. They also had a LuvLuv cocktail that was a favorite of mine and it had notes of vanilla, berries, lemon, and chamboard ( all some of my favorite things in one cocktail). Here is a peek at what other cocktails they had to offer along with some appetizers. My husband enjoyed a moscow mule that was one of the best he said he has had. SO- if you are a moscow mule fan you may need to take a date night and go enjoy one- or two- I’m not here to judge. They offered local North Carolina beers that were on a display for the guest.

Here is a break down of the courses. WARNING: YOU ARE ABOUT TO GET REALLY HUNGRY AND HAVE A HANKERING FOR SPRING HOUSE.

I really enjoyed all the courses and it was fun for me to channel my inner CHOPPED JUDGE GAME FACE. Love that show. Big THANKS to Chef Tim for the invite. My husband and I met local blogger Jay Callahan who attended every night during the festival and blogged about each. Click on his name to read his review and quote from me about night four.
