truffle truffle ~ Green Beer Marshmallows for St Pattys Day ~ the Rogue way

truffle truffle in Chicago uses Rogue Chocolate Stout in their beer & pretzel recipes and have a special green beer marshmallow for St Patricks Day 2011 that will benefit the community ~ Rogue go Bragh!

green beer o'mallows

think green...beer marshmallows! Inspired by local tradition, we've turned our beer marshmallows green for St. Patrick's Day! This limited edition box, finished with a kelly green bow and shamrock tag, features our beer and pretzel marshmallows dressed up for the occasion, with a green hue and Shamrock confetti. Best of all, since "thinking green" means so much more to all of us, a percentage of proceeds from the sale of these seasonal treats will benefit Gateway Green's Tree Partnership Program, dedicated to converting abandoned lots into community green spaces to beautify Chicago's neighborhoods.

Order online before March 18th: http://www.truffletruffle.com/beer_pretzel_collection.php

I'll be at Rattle N Hum from 6-9pm and hope to see you in Gotham! If you see me with my
We Can Do It lunchbox, ask what is inside! This image is often misattributed to Norman Rockwell, it is a WPA era design my J. Howard Miller for Westinghouse.

Join me in celebrating many accomplishments of women, especially in the brewing industry and culinary trade, plus the women who grow the ingredients we eat and drink.

Here is a short history from the United Nations. The banner logo above is from this UN 1997 post, and has the dove symbol which I associated with Danish designer Siersbol. I have my Grandmother Lillian's necklace with this dove/women's sign which was made in Denmark.

I've posted about women in the beer industry and the Pink Boots Society, and my involvement with food as a member of the American Cheese Society and Women Chefs and Restaurateurs Assoc (sign up today, we want you as a member!). Its all about educating and promoting craft beer, from the tank to the table. Barley's Angels, is the new consumer leg of Pink Boots Society for ladies to enjoy and learn about beer. Chapters are being setup across the globe, check us out ladies & friend us on facebook!

Another highlight this week is Top Chef All Stars on Wednesday. Three of the five finalists are women. Kudos to Chef Carla Hall, Chef Tiffany Derry, and Chef Antonia Lofaso. The episode on Ellis Island, exploring each contestant's genealogy and their families connection to food was wonderful.

You Go Girls!
