City Blossoms Fish Pepper Barbecue

Charity event
Please note: This event has already occurred.
Fish peppers were a staple of African American cooking in Maryland in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and possibly even in Colonial days. Their piquant flavor has been rediscovered by chefs in recent years, thanks to Baltimore's Woodberry Kitchen, which uses fish peppers in its hot sauce, and gardeners interested in heirloom vegetables. The City Blossoms public garden has been growing its own chili peppers and is turning them into Flying Fish Pepper Barbecue Sauce. Get a taste during a special barbecue at Dacha Beer Garden. Grab a $5 pulled pork sandwich, listen to the 19th Street Band play bluegrass and sip German beers and Distillery Lane cider. If you like the sauce, take a bottle home for $5; all food and drink sales benefit City Blossoms. This is a great chance to enjoy the end of fall around a firepit at Shaw's coolest new beer garden: Dacha closes for the season soon.
