I admit it. I’m a geek. I’m your more classic kind of geek, OpenBSD server in a hand made rack mount hanging in the top of my utility closet, as well as your food and sustainability geek.
These things do in fact collide more often than one might think.
Case in point: I just made the dinner menu for game night. Game night means a Dungeons and Dragons style game, though for this particular campaign, we’re playing Pathfinder from Paizo Publishing, using my own game world. The dinner below isn’t a one off. This kind of thing is rather common.
Pre-dinner cocktail: Manhattans (Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon, Lillet Blonde, and American Spoon Balatons Cherries)
Main course: Venison stew
Side dish: Batate All’Abbamelle (baked Sweet potatoes with a sardinian honey and pollen reduction)
Dessert: Pannacotta kin Abbathu (Custard with abbamele and berries)
Wine pairing: Riverside Red from Purple Feet Winery
Beer pairing: Black Velvet (my own hard cider, with Faircy Irish Stout from Arbor Brewing Company)
