Everything You Never Knew You Wanted To Know About Hominy

MOLINE, IL/ September 16 2013 - Miss Mamie's Restaurant and Bar in Moline is hosting a food tasting on Thursday, September 26th beginning at 6:00pm. Miss Mamie's will be introducing a quintessential Costal dish to their menu; Polenta with Sautéed Shrimp Fra Diavolo, better known as Shrimp & Grits.

In addition to Shrimp & Grits, Miss Mamie's will feature several appetizers, cocktails, and desserts to give guests a feel for the possibilities of what could go with this exciting new entrée.

Reservations are limited to 50 people and the cost is just $30.00 per person. All proceeds and donations from this event will go to a scholarship for the Scott Community College Chef Apprentice Program.

Miss Mamie's' Chef and Owner, Mike Osborn, wants to bring this fresh, new Costal Cuisine to the Quad Cities. "This event offers local foodies a chance to be the first to taste a new entrée, as well as several other selections. Our launch party will highlight a Southern specialty with a Midwestern base." Grits are small, broken grains of corn, and Iowa and Illinois have produced the largest corn crop for almost two decades.
