For those of you who aren't familiar with Chobani, they are the Greek yogurt company who makes yummy authentic Greek yogurt you find at the grocery store.
For dinner, they invited us to Parkside on 6th Street in Austin for a Chobani inspired menu. Each of the 5 courses featured Chobani's Greek yogurt within the course. I loved how creative the menu was! Have you ever thought about yogurt jerky? Me neither!
It was such a wonderful evening getting to know Emily and the girls from Chobani - they were awesome. Not to mention getting to hang out with some fellow Austin food bloggers.
I loved that I could haul out my huge camera AND my iPhone and no one minded since they were all food bloggers too! We all had fun analyzing, photographing and discussing food. Basically my dream evening.
Ok onto the food!
I hate to start with this one because it was my least favorite dish out of all 5! This was my first experience with trout caviar and I can't say I was a big fan. It was like liquid fish exploding in my mouth. And avocados? In cold, liquid form? Not my favorite either. But I did love the contrast of the blood orange with the avocado and the "chili" aka fresh vegetables were crunchy and fresh and were delicious.
Okay, I loved this course! I didn't know I liked beets so much! Fresh, colorful beets, were the star of this dish and I ate every bite. The yogurt jerky was fun and playful but I'm not sure if I ate every bite! :)
