Charm City Cook: Bubbles and BBQ at Waterfront Kitchen

IMG_3287

A gorgeous summer Baltimore night. Bubbles from Cali. Sounds perfect, no?

Yes. Perfect. As I sat along the water in Fell’s Point on quite possibly the most beautiful night of the entire summer (it was not raining!) on the terrace at the absolutely gorgeous Waterfront Kitchen, I knew I was in for a treat. The dinner, “Bubbles & BBQ,” was co-hosted by Jerry Pellegrino of Waterfront Kitchen and Hugh Davies of Napa Valley’s Schramsberg Vineyards. Honestly, I sometimes go to dinners like this and wonder how I got so lucky.

While I could see it was going to a fabulous night of food and wine, it was also a very casual, approachable dinner. (HooRAY, she says!) It was served family style at two long communal tables, so as food came off the grill, it was placed on the table and passed. LOVE. This allows you to meet fellow diners, get comfortable and just have fun. Relax…

And…some guests paid a little extra for the opportunity to be prep cooks: chopping, grilling and more. (I want to do that next time!) Before dinner, they passed simple hors d’oeuvres, as well as oysters right off the grill that were shucked, downed and tossed into the water. That was a lot of fun….everyone just flinging oyster shells off the pier.
