No other time of the year lends itself to a road trip like summer. And what better destination than the Gage Hotel?
Located in Marathon, Texas (where it is usually about 10 degrees cooler than San Antonio temperatures) near Big Bend National Park, The Gage is a historic, mission-style hotel that will be hosting chef Bruce Auden of Biga on the Banks on Saturday as a part of the “Grilling at the Gage” series.
Auden and his right hand man, chef Martin Stembera, will be cooking up a storm in the Gage’s kitchen and will be joined by Auden’s wife, Debra, who will be baking bread for the event. After dinner will be a performance from singer/songwriter Kelley Mickwee.
Auden’s menu is as follows:
–Hill Country wild boar cooked with Asian spices wrapped in lettuces with bean sprouts, cashews and spicy sauces
–Jerk Scallop with Texas cheesy grits and pineapple rum relish
–Bandera Quail and grapefruit salad with avocado, walnut and bleu cheese
–Axis Venison and Lamb on corn pudding with “massaged” kale, fig relish and juniper sauce
–Sticky Toffee Pudding with bourbon fruit and English Custard
