Eating the Blues Away at Rock Your Palate

rockyourpalate.jpg

What does dirty rice boudin, electric mud, sweet tea-brined quail, Big Bill Broonzy, pimento cheese, lots of bourbon, Howlin' Wolf, shrimp remoulade and Chess Records have in common? If you answered pop up dinner series Rock Your Palate, you are correct. Chef Chris Pandel (The Bristol, Balena) rocked a full on sensory pop up installment of chefs, artists and musicians hosted by Lincoln Park's Floating World Gallery, 1925 N. Halsted St., Nov. 2 and 3.
