If you’re a regular reader of Savvy Eats, you know that one of my favorite restaurants is Bluephies in Madison. It is one of the places that both my parents and Dan’s mom suggest we go to whenever they are town.
In fact, Dan and I love Bluephies so much that instead of cake, we will be serving their Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Egg Rolls at our wedding.
We love Bluephies for the unique twists they give to classic dishes. Meatloaf with Andouille sausage. Goat cheese and black bean enchiladas. Butterfinger wontons. They have plenty of vegetarian dishes, and they clearly mark on their menu when a dish can be made gluten-free. Trust me, I really appreciated that when I couldn’t eat gluten for 6 months!
Today, Bluephies turns 15! In honor of the restaurant’s ‘birthday,’ the executive chef and co-owner of Bluephies, Bill Horzuesky, has graciously agreed to giveaway one copy of the Bluephies cookbook on Savvy Eats!
This is one of my favorite cookbooks. Not only are the recipes for some of my favorite Bluephies dishes included, but the photography is beautiful and the book is riddled with Bill’s cooking tips.
It even includes the recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Egg Rolls.
In honor of my giveaway, I am going to be making a recipe (or two!) from the cookbook and featuring them on the blog every day this week. Except for Sunday, when I will be having brunch there with Kelley!
Unfortunately, I can’t post any of the recipes here because of copyrights, but I can show you pictures and give you my thoughts on the difficulty and deliciousness of the dishes.
Butternut Squash Soup. The recipe wasn’t too difficult, and the results were pretty yummy! I did learn, however, that I should not multitask and try to do the beginning steps while also making the Tomato Olive Butter. I burned the brown sugar a bit doing that, hence the darker-than-normal color–oops! Other than that, the soup was excellent. It makes a huge batch, so I cut it down since I have so many other things to make this week.
Tomato Olive Butter. This is what Bluephies serves before each meal with sourdough bread. It is so delicious, and it turns out it is pretty simple to make! I am doing my best to keep myself from eating all of the leftovers with fresh sourdough.
How can you enter this giveaway and learn to make all these delicious meals? Simple!
