CENTRAL COAST SOUR
The mixologists at Sidecar Restaurant in San Luis Obispo serve classic cocktails your grandfather might have mixed up in his basement. As a result, we don't use any energy drinks or cheap wells when perfecting signature recipes like the Central Coast Sour.
CELERY ROOT, CELERY HEART, AND CELERY LEAF SALAD
This salad is for the celery lover, as it uses the root, heart, and leaves. It’s a study in contrasts and colors, with textural crunch from the sliced celery heart and matchstick-cut root playing against the delicate tender leaves. The soft green of celery is layered with the darker tones of plucked whole parsley leaves. Look in a specialty food store or gourmet grocer for Moscatel vinegar, which has a delicate, mildly acidic flavor that complements celery root. Sherry vinegar or white balsamic vinegar is an acceptable substitute.
MUFFULETTA FINGER SANDOS
Since the SuperBowl is New Orleans this year you may want to bring a Muffuletta sandwich to your party. After all this sandwich was invented in New Orleans at The Central Grocery. This recipe is going to be a bit vague, it's designed to get you thinking creatively and is definately just a guideline (as all savory recipes are really).
WEST COAST CRAB CAKES
Serves: 4 people
With the SuperBowl just around the corner we thought it would be fun to show our congratulations to the Baltimore Raven's by serving Crabcakes at our party. While tradional Maryland Crabcakes are delicious this is our version. This recipe yields a bright, clean crabcake letting the crab shine.
