When Chef JJ Boston first talked to me about EggFest, I have to admit I didn’t get it.   Eggs?  Really?  A food festival based on eggs?   But that is not what EggFest is about.

The “Egg” in EggFest is the Big Green Egg, a unique barbecue product.  It is a smoker, a grill and an oven all rolled into one.  On your egg, you can cook everything from appetizers to desert, and this festival celebrates all of that.

If you liked grilled meat and fish, are curious about what a grilled mango/pineapple salsa, grilled pizza or grilled apple pie will taste like, then join us on Saturday, May 19 at JJ’s Backyard as 30+ chefs demonstrate their skills.

Be sure to check out my husband Andy’s grilled salsa and maybe take home a jar or two of sauce for your own grilling adventures.
