Beers, Bites, and Elephants? An Event Like No Other At This CNY Zoo [VIDEO]
Here's yet another option for you to drink beer and eat animal inspired food at the zoo this summer.
Catering at the Zoo returns to the Rosamond Gifford Zoo with another special addition to their Gourmet Dinner Series. This time they have partnered with Meier's Creek to create an "Elephantastic" meal for Asian Elephant Awareness Month.
This 7-course dinner highlights a wide array of Asian-inspired dishes that are all vegetarian. Each dish is also perfectly paired with a delish beer, all provided by Meier's Creek Brewing Company. You can even try their specialty "Elephantatic IPA."
You can even go see the zoo's elephants for yourself in their beautiful Helga Beck Asian Elephant Preserve. The 7-acre exhibit has a 50,000 gallon, fully filtrated watering hole, perfect for the big animals on a hot summer day.
Here's a look at the "Elephantastic Eats!" station menu...
Station 1 - Sweet potato, Brussel sprouts, farro, balsamic reduction, goat cheese
Station 2 - Watermelon, Thai chili, lime, queso fresco, cilantro
Station 3 - Son-in-law Eggs (fried hard boiled with sweet chili sauce)
