Dig IN is the chance for over 35 of Indiana's best chefs, over 20 wineries and breweries, and countless artisans to showcase their craft to thousands in the heart of downtown Indianapolis on the grounds of the beautiful White River State Park.
Scratch Truck's Bourbon Braised Brisket, topped with a Peach and Bourbon Glaze, with housemade Caraway pickles. To break it down a bit more: they used Spring Mill's Bourbon, Triton's Dead-Eye Stout, and Fischer Farms Brisket. This was one of my absolute favorites of the day. Also-I must add that the portions they were doling out were HUGE. If you were lucky enough to have hit them up before about 3pm because I actually was back in that section later and noticed they ran out.
My first time at Scratch truck and will definitely not be my last. Will be looking for them again for sure!
Mini Wagyu Burger
Joseph Decius-the line encountered was pretty long, due to word of mouth and a write up in the Indystar for the ones to hit. His Mini Wagyu Burgers with spicy tomato jam and bleu cheese mousse were 100% worth the wait.
Northside Social's Pancetta & Chicken Salad Bib Wrap and went really well with New Day Meadery's South Cider
Spice Box had a really good Chicken Kofta Ball. Great curry favor and it is nice to know they know the correct balance of spiciness without being overly salted. If you love curry this will not disappoint!
Duos had a really great soup- Chanterelle Vegetable Bisque, which would have been even more enjoyable had it not been a 90 degree day with 70% humidity.
As a far as beverages, New Day Meadery had their delicious South Cider on tap. Super refreshing on such a hot day! Local Breweries were on hand offering their ales, as well as many wineries, including Oliver.
Also Bee's Coffee Roasters had my favorite drink of the non-alcoholic variety-The Plum Buzz Coffee Soda wins on creativity and imaginative use of Anderson Orchard Plums and Upland Brewery's Bay Leaf and Malt Vinegar extracts. Go there now. Hopefully they still have some left.
Dig-IN is a great experience and already looking forward to next year!
