Wow! What an experience! This great team representing White Hills Farm cooked for ESPN’s College Gameday VIPs and The Home Depot VIPs, Saturday September 2,, 2017 for the College Football Kickoff Classic at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
After all the prep work the experience began Friday September 1st with Ryan and Patrick driving to the Gameday set to get everything coordinated for Saturday’s event. While there they got a great photo with Tommy “The Man who made it Happen”! Thanks Tommy!. Once all the logistics were set it was off to meet our team and finalize the plans for Saturday.
Saturday was an early wake up, and we drove to the set to get ready to serve some of our delicious food. We set up our REC TEC smokers, graciously provided by Jody at REC TEC. Thank you Jody! It was a day of cooking food, talking with ESPN analyst and staff, and a great crowd of people enjoying the Start of another College Football Season.
We were joined by a great Chef, Kevin Sharkey from 1608 Crafthouse in Virginia Beach. We cannot wait to go visit him and eat at his restaurant.
Annemarie sent a message to her grandma!
The food we prepared consisted of Pastrami, Boston Butt, Bacon Explosion, Smoked candied pecans, Pimento cheese, Jamaican Jerk boneless skinless chicken thighs, Rosemary Pork Tenderloin, sweet and spicy pickles. With lots of great sides.
We finished it all off with Ryan’s Grilled Peach Cobbler. Wow, was it good and went fast!
Thank you again to all the people at ESPN and Tommy for including us in the Tailgate!
