This past Sunday morning, the Eat Drink RI festival, an annual gathering of local foodies in the downtown area organized by David Dadekian, came to a close with a behemoth of a meal located in the Biltmore Ballroom. A smattering of local chefs, both culinary and pastry, offered wonderfully delicious dishes showcasing the best Providence has to offer. The sheer range, featuring everything from sinfully decadent french toast (Julians) to perfectly tender strips of chicken swimming in a spicy bath of green salsa (El Rancho Grande). Below, a few highlights from the brunch.
The aforementioned french toast, from Julian’s, made from raspberry babka and set afloat in a pool of mint chocolate sauce.
The fantastic north bakery was giving out Dark Chocolate cookies (pictured), as well as their latest menu addition: a sweet-savory Brown-Butter Miso cookie studded with bits of caramelized white chocolate.
