Cooking Channel's popular series, Best Thing I Ever Ate, a show where food stars and top chefs highlight the best damn thing that's ever met their mouths, premiered their last season in 2011. Six years later, the hit is back on the air, and Chucktown's very own Carrie Morey and her dreamy/flaky/buttery biscuits will be featured on the comeback season's first episode.

Mon. Dec. 11 at 8 p.m. tune in as food personality Jamika Pessoa "gushes" over Morey and her biz. The episode's theme is "Worth the Wait" — Morey's biscuits are in good company with Alton Brown's beloved Marcel Restaurant's Beef Wellington; Ali Khan's fave brisket at La Barbecue in Austin; Geoffrey Zakarian's choice burger at Au Cheval in Chicago; Beau MacMillan's preferred pasta sugo at Tratto in Phoenix; Roger Mooking's choice chicken and rice at Nong's Khao Man Gai in Portland, OR; and Duff Goldman's fave hot chicken at Howlin' Rays in Los Angeles.

New episodes will air every Monday with themes like "Feats of Meat," "Life Changers," "Picture Perfect," "#Throwback, etc. If the episode gives you better-get-some-biscuits cravings, Callie's is open on Upper King Street Mon.-Fri. 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sat. and Sun. 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., and late night Fri. and Sat. 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Local artists design labels for Frothy Beard bottles released next Friday

The art of drinking

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Fri, Dec 8, 2017 at 11:41 AM

Next Fri. Dec. 15 Frothy Beard Brewing Co. is dropping three limited edition Frothy bottles. You can snag the Hooloovoo Blueberry Gose, Rum Barrel Aged Mermaid's Milk, or Bobby Don Bigelow Lemone & Black Pepper Saison. Talk about a mouth party.

In addition to these bottles being special and limited, they are also given a personal touch with labels specially designed by local artists.

  • Randy Anthony

The gose was brewed with Bulls Bay sea salt, soured in High Wire sorghum whiskey barrels, and made with blueberries from Black Pearl farms. Co-owner and brewer Joey Siconolfi says that this beer came about with the help of patron Randy Anthony, who came in so often that the Frothy Beard guys told him that if he returned 42 days in a row they'd let him help make whatever beer he wanted. So, he did — and he designed the label, which features a blue galaxy of sorts, in reference to the race of super-intelligent Hooloovoo from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Duh.

  • Tami Boyce

The milk stout, made with co conut and aged in rum barrels for four months, features the design of Tami Boyce, who has created most of Frothy Beard's artwork since they opened five years ago.

  • Nick Jenkins
The saison is considered to be part of a series, with Frothy releasing saisons every few months comprised of mostly local ingredients. This brew is a collab with Lowcountry Lemonade with malt from Asheville, NC, and yeast from Clemson, S.C. Local experimental artist Nick Jenkins created the saison's label, featuring Siconolfi's friend's cat, BobbyDon.

The bottles will only be available in the brewery starting next Friday. Hours are 11 a.m.-11 p.m. daily and 11 a.m.-10 p.m. on Sundays.

It's almost the end of 2017 — the year of "hits that keep on coming" — and if that isn't a reason to celebrate, well, we don't know what is.

Raise a glass of the good stuff, the really good stuff, at chef Nico Romo's new spot NICO starting this Friday. The modern French oyster bar will be offering specials on Veuve Clicquot that will run through the new year.

Friday, order a $68 bottle to pair with your plate overflowing with fruits de mer. Then, Christmas Eve until NYE, take advantage of a $99 special that includes a bottle and a dozen oysters, a $99 special for a bottle and foie gras, or go out with a bang and order the $199 special for a bottle of Veuve and caviar service.

This Sat. Dec. 9 from 5:30 to 10 p.m., owners Patty Floersheimer and Trudi Wagner will be popping bubbly and serving up truffles, caviar, and "all the cheese." Guest sommeliers from McCarus Beverage will pour rare bubbles and magnums to pair with the delectable cheese boards.
