During the 60-minute event, duos and groups will sip on five frothy beers from around the world, each expertly paired with miniature bacon-inspired treats. Menus changes frequently but may include foods such as mini sweet potato ravioli with candied bacon and pumpkin seed oil or a bacon napoleon with fresh-cut red russet chips with aged cheddar, baby arugula, and baked hickory-smoked bacon dip. Tastings take place at noon and 6 p.m. on select dates.
Helmed by chef Jim Benson, Eleven Courses’ multifaceted team of chefs, artists, and organizers embraces the art of the party with elegant catering and event services ranging from in-home tastings to multicourse wedding feasts. Top-notch chefs curate nuanced tasting menus as well as wine and artisan-beer tastings that tease out the complementary tastes of bacon and beer or wine and truffles.
In addition to keeping kitchens alive and cooking, Jim’s team also handles the whys and wherefores of event planning. Resident visual artists contribute to cake and floral designs, and professional planners orchestrate happenings ranging from weddings and business meetings to black-tie fantasy-baseball drafts. Eleven Courses' staff members hone their skills at a range of regional events such as the Capital Bacon and Beer Bash, the Baltimore Bridal Show, the National Harbor Wine and Food Festival, and the 3rd Anniversary Hippodrome Foodie Experience with Andrew Zimmerman of Travel Channel fame. Eleven Courses has been featured on WTTG FOX 5 and WBAL 11.
