Grass Fed Beef Tasting - Foodbuzz 24x24

We attended our first Foodbuzz 24x24 event this past weekend - one of 24 documented meals in 24 hours from around the world. The hosts were our friends Peter and Christey at fotocuisine. Check out their clever recipes, photos and musings on some of the best tasting (and best looking) food around.

Please take a look at their 24x24 posting on fotocuisine to absorb and appreciate all the passion and effort that went into their grass fed beef tasting; from the ambitious menu and attention to detail to the whimsical table settings and world-class photography of the event.

Peter not only went to great lengths to create this amazing meal for us, but spent some time explaining the significant differences between industrial/feedlot and grass-fed beef. We tasted and then voted on fillet mignon with bĂ©arnaise sauce, skirt steak chimichurri, and mini burger “sliders” with a demi-glace mushroom sauce. YUM! In the end, the grass-fed beef was preferred although not by as much as I predicted. The delicious sauces helped even things out and by the time we got to the burgers, it was challenging to tell the difference between the two.

In the end, this kid-friendly event was enjoyed by all! Lillie and Sadie loved their grass fed mini burgers. Thanks again, Peter and Christey!
