Farm to Fork Blog

Farm to Fork is a small catering and eatery located in Leander, Texas. Chef Shelley Pogue is the owner and founder of Chef Pogue's Farm To Fork. A Le Cordon Bleu Honor's Graduate with background in Recipe Development that were mass produced in large retail markets. Food has been changing for the past couple of decades some good and some not so much. I want to be able to help other,s and share my knowledge about the benefits of eating fresh local foods.

I am going to offer healthy local food choices from our local farmers that will bring healthy food options to the diner table. There will be seasonal fresh food choices for the carnivore, or the vegetarian regardless of the busy lifestyle we all seem to have these days. My goal is to feed my community, with great fresh food that is locally grown. It will help our local farmers, and if you have ever eaten something fresh from the farm you definitely know the difference! 

Bourbon Balls Recipe

Here is a dessert recipe that will be a little different from the others, and if you want to add a little more bourbon, make sure to add it to the adult table. These sweet treats will be a crowd pleaser and go nicely with some warm cider or brandy after a nice hearty meal.

Ingredients:

1 cup vanilla wafer crumbs
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup bourbon
1 1/2 teaspoons light corn syrup
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration

Directions: Combine ground vanilla wafer crumbs, finely chopped pecans, 1 cup confectioners' sugar and cocoa. Blend the bourbon and the corn syrup together. Add the crumb mixture and mix well. Shape into 1 inch balls and roll in the 1/2 cup of confectioners' sugar. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
