Brendan Dorr of B&O Brasserie mixing up cocktails in Baltimore

Dorr-682x1024

In celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Star-Spangled Banner, the Smithsonian Channel and the National Museum of American History created “Raise A Glass to History.” The Smithsonian chose 14 mixologists from around the country to create a patriotic cocktail and Baltimore’s own Brendan Dorr of B&O American Brasserie was one of those chosen.

Brendan’s cocktail – Line State Punch – is a combination of the Diamondback cocktail from the Diamondback Lounge in the Lord Baltimore Hotel and a popular punch from the early 1800s. The recipe represents Baltimore as well as the libations that were in vogue when the Star-Spangled Banner flew over Fort McHenry. He chose applejack because it can be dated back to the time of George Washington and rye was one of our country’s earliest expressions of whiskey with roots originating in Maryland. Also, probably because it’s just delicious. Read More →

Governor’s Buy Local Cookout

BFM produce for blog book

This Thursday July 24, Martin and Katie O’Malley are hosting the 7th Annual Buy Local Cookout, which celebrates Maryland’s Buy Local Challenge Week, July 19-27, and encourages all Marylanders to eat at least one locally grown, made or harvested product each day. Recipes for the cookout, submitted by teams of Maryland chefs and producers, were selected for their availability of ingredients, geographic representation, maximum use of local ingredients and creativity. Governor O’Malley has supported the Buy Local Challenge throughout his administration and began hosting the cookout during his second year in office. This will be his seventh – and final – year hosting the cookout, which will be held at Government House on Thursday, July 24.

“Katie and I have very much enjoyed hosting the Buy Local Cookout, not only because it’s a delicious event, but because it brings attention to the importance of supporting our family farmers and eating fresh, local food that’s good for you,” said Governor O’Malley. “Buying local also helps us strengthen local economies by creating more jobs and promoting a greener, more sustainable Maryland. This event has been a highlight of my year for seven years.”

Here is one of the recipes to be served at the cookout, courtesy of Bryan Davis of Classic Catering.
