Cows and Cabs 2014 Recap

October 26, 2014 at 10:42 AM




On Saturday October 15th, we attended the Cows 'N Cabs event in Winter Park. 

To channel in our John Fogerty style, we wore our jeans, boots, square texas shirts, fully charged our camera and we were off to the races. From all the excitement, once we got there we realized we actually forgot to grab the camera's battery from its charging station, so we had no camera to cover this event, which sometimes can be better as you focus on enjoying instead of capturing moments you are not living; however we quickly realized we were glad not to have a camera as there was a lot to eat and PLENTY of drinking stations. 

The Cows 'N Cab event is a charity focused on food and wine, created to benefit local charities while showcasing Orlando's top culinary talent. 

Once you walk in you are greeted with a beer station, our favorite: Stella, to your left the line up of food starts and on the other side, a wine station with the live music stage... where to start??


Some of the highlights were:

KRestaurant with an Apple Cider Brined Pork Belly served with apple bread pudding with hard cider sauce.
