Show 181, July 23, 2016: Dominic Palmieri, The Midway Gourmet, OC Fair

Dominic Palmieri of Midway GourmetThe OC Fair is hosting “Get Your Fair Face On!” from July 25th to August 14th in celebration of its 126th anniversary with culinary creations to suit all palates. Foodies can enjoy wild and new fare mixed in with the traditional fair food.

The word is already out on the new grilled, bacon-wrapped pork belly dog on a stick from Biggy’s. Also, consider if you will, Deep Fried Butter and Deep Fried Nutella. Not attention-getting gimmicks but worthy fair food…We’ll meet the creator, Dominic Palmieri, The Midway Gourmet!

Biggy’s big hit from previous years, The Big Rib, is back for an encore. It’s a 2-pound beef rib on a 17-inch bone (ala “the stick”). The weight is both the meat and the bone.

Also within the popular food stands of the RCS Midway is Pickle Fries at Pickle O’ Pete’s. If you enjoy the taste of dill pickles this will be a new winner for you.

Their motto : Bringing Everything Delicious! From Gourmet Fare to Wild and Wacky Treats.
