Pop Up Dinner | Peached Tortilla + Argus Cidery + Gyspy Floral

Earlier last month The Peached Tortilla collaborated for the second time with Austin's fabulous vendors for a pop-up dinner. Floral and event design was by Emily and Sunni from Gypsy Floral and Events.

Nestled in the hill country just west of Austin sits Argus Cidery- an industrial park by day turned romantic modern day barn by night where the dinner was held. Of course the incredible menu was created by Eric Silverstein, the chef behind Peached Tortilla.

It was an enchanting evening!

A huge thank you to Premiere Party Central for sponsoring the event with all of the china ware rentals, and Hill Country Events and Rentals for donating the farmhouse tables and benches!

Here is Eric putting the finishing touches on the delightful pear appetizers...

The first course was kimchi arancini lollipops, deep fried risotto balls infused with kimchi, parmesan and mozzarella cheese. Those lollipops had just the right amount of kick!

It was a record-spinning, cider-sippin, good-eatin kinda night.

The kimchi lollipops were followed by Thai carrot soup topped with ginger salt, fried shallots, cilantro and white pepper. (I ate mine and then begged Johnny for his!)

The seating chart was posted on wood planks outside of the barn. Ingenius idea!

Each table received a nine pound bone in slow smoked kalua pork shoulder and a variety of accoutrements, including bibb lettuce, kimchi, pickles, wasabi mayo, Chinese BBQ sauce, and rice. (Of which you can find a version of this on our catering menu for your next private event!) The bookend to the meal was apple cobbler wontons. (Sadly I was not able to stay for the main course or apple wontons!)

Still wondering what this whole pop up dinner is?
In case you didn't already know, a few years back The Peach Tortilla began as a food truck and you can still find them parked in various places around town. I like how Eric worded it on their website. "We like to engage with our loyal customers in a setting outside of the fast-paced nature of food trucks and continue to broaden our reputation in anticipation of our brick and mortar! Our multi-course pop up dinners allow us to solicit feedback from our guests, in turn helping us slowly carve out our menu for our soon-to-be brick and mortar location!"

How exciting! The Peached Tortilla will be having more pop-up dinners in the future so like them on their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter to keep up to date with the latest news! Who knows! Maybe you'll see us at the next pop up dinner shooting away and of course always taking time to eat TPT's delightful decadence! 

Thanks so much Eric, Hope & Emily for letting us be a part of the day!
