2013 North Market Fiery Foods Weekend

logo - shirts

I have much much fun traveling to all these special shows, but I do not think I feel more at home than when I visit Columbus’ North Market for this show. Maybe it is how welcome I feel when I see my good friends CaJohn & Sue Hard in their element. Their show, their home and they really do bring the hospitality. Especially with their Annual Open House event. I know it isn’t just me they welcome with open arms, but everyone that comes into their spicy lair. They have treated me so much like a family over the years I get all warm and fuzzy when I see them and get a empty feeling in my belly when I leave. Of course the tummy issue could be a result of the fiery imbibing throughout my stay that has incinerated my innards. I am no Doctor, but I swear it is from leaving all my chilehead friends behind, not just the Hards, but I think I miss them the most.

Nick Ney of Cajun Island shares some AWESOME Cajun recipes

The day after the Weekend of Fire show some of us traveled up to Columbus, Ohio to visit Nick Ney’s Cajun Island restaurant and food court. He treated us to some amazing food, including my favorite from last year his Blackened Chicken and Bowtie Pasta. Along with serving he also allowed me to film the recipe for that dish and his Dirty Rice recipe. The best dirty rice I have ever had. A huge thank you to Nick for the wonderful food and hospitality. If there is another one of these in the future, you would be out of your mind to miss it if you could attend. I still am thinking about the amazing Gator Gumbo as well!
