Yes, before the landslide of email arrives, all of which will be berating me for my lack of posts on this blog, let me pre-empt your fury by agreeing with you. Indeed, I have not been here for a while.
Fortunately, I am back to allocating time to write about food. This means you should (hopefully) see at least one post every other week. I mean, really, I eat every day. Why shouldn’t I write about it? I’ll try to be consistent – how about Mondays?
So Guy Fieri of Food Network fame was in town this past week. His team had surreptitiously checked out a few different places, with Guy finally deciding that Moseberth’s in Portsmouth VA would be perfect for his show, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. A family run restaurant, in business for 71 years, Moseberth’s looks to be the place for fried chicken, pulled pork barbeque and collard greens.
With this visit making the local news yesterday, I am sure Mr. Moseberth and his crew will have already seen an increase in business today. Once the episode airs, it could be a mad house rush!
I will make a point to find time to take one of my sous chefs (and maybe his girlfriend, too, if she wants to come) to visit this establishment. I know it is not on the Eastern Shore, but good food is worth a $17 bridge toll.
In the meantime, tautog season is about to end for a while, as flounder action is starting to pick up. That means three things: I need to find time to go fishing, I need to clean up the outdoor grill, and maybe it’s time to make a return trip to the Chesapeake Grill on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.
I think this summer will include a great culinary adventure and I can’t wait to share it with you – my three faithful readers! Just joking…I know there are five of you.
So raise a glass to Mr. Flounder – may he be of legal size and come with a side of tartar sauce!
