James Beard Eats Week

Eduardo’s is excited to be participating in the Choose Chicago James Beard Eats Week and Sneak Peek Soiree! For the event, we were tasked with creating a featured dish inspired by Beard, the author, chef, and all-around culinary inspiration for whom the award is named. As we researched, we were struck by a particular quote that captured the playfulness and dark sense of humor of the renowned chef:

“I believe that if ever I had to practice cannibalism, I might manage if there were enough tarragon around.”

Thus, we got to work on our signature dish, ‘The Bone Cone:’ We infused our ice cream with bone marrow and tarragon, and included a spatter of blood orange to round it out. Passion for food and sense of humor are two traits that Beard and our chef share. From the dark mind of Beard to the imagination of our chef, this dish is quite a twisted interpretation of this famous Beard quote.
