Bang for your buck

Dierbergs whets our appetites

Friday, November 6th, 2009

Just in time for holiday entertaining, Dierbergs School of Cooking has published Appetizers, the latest addition to its growing line of cookbooks. Gracing the book’s cover is a close-up of a tomato bacon mini tart, and the loveliness of that puff-pastry blossom instantly made us want to commence our end-of-year noshing and tippling.

Appetizers features chapters on cheese, seafood and meat, veggies and fruit, dips and nibbles, beverages and desserts. The 64 individual recipes range from baked Manchego to fillo-wrapped shrimp with Jack Daniel’s sauce, from mini Greek strudels to strawberry daiquiri cupcakes. Accompanying each of the recipes in Appetizers is nutrition information, including a given recipe’s cardiac healthiness (in accordance with the Eat Hearty program co-sponsored by Missouri Baptist Medical Center and Dierbergs Markets).

The cookbook’s 18 contributors, incidentally, include chef Coby Arzola from (um, duh) Chuy Arzola’s; he provides a recipe for chipotle glazed pecans that sounds as if it would go great with the customary seasonal re-viewing of It’s a Wonderful Life.

The 96-page, 8.5-inch-square full-color hardcover, which went on sale this week, includes an index and retails for $12.95.

Bang for Your Buck: Tin Can Tavern

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

Both locations of Tin Can Tavern and Grille have a recession-friendly happy hour. On weekdays from 3 to 7 p.m., you can get more than 30 brews for a buck fifty each. Not a beer fan? Well drinks and wine are discounted, too, costing $2.50 and $4 per glass, respectively. The Tin Can will also cure your munchies on the cheap. Selected apps such as mini corndogs, almond chicken tenders and corn on the cob are half off the regular price.

Bang for your buck: Mattingly

Monday, June 1st, 2009

Happy Monday! At the start of every week, Mattingly Brewing on South Jefferson Avenue snubs the recession with an all-day happy hour. (Read about other happy hours around town in this month’s cover story.) Slices of hand-tossed cheese pizza cost 99 cents from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. – and toppings like prosciutto, pineapple and feta collect just a few coins more. Half-price appetizers including steak kabobs and baked goat cheese ring up for $4 and under. And last but at the brewpub hardly least: All pints flow your way today for $3.

Just spreading the word about a good deal so that you can save and savor.

Three’s the magic number tonight at Local Harvest Cafe in South City. Every Friday, by-the-glass wines cost just $3. Pick from pours like a peppery Penascal Tempranillo and a crisp Ceviche Sauvignon Blanc. Local Harvest only stocks what’s sustainably produced, so feel free to have a few.
