Swanky Supper

Last night I got to go to The Coach House! A group of coworkers and I went for a Made in Oklahoma Coalition event. It was a delicious meal with excellent service. We even got to hear from Chef Kurt on where some of the food came from. The restaurant was dark and cozy. It was surprisingly small, but I think they had other rooms closed off because we had the place to ourselves.

The menu:

Seared Catfish with Buttermilk Spoon Bread
with Mixed Field Greens in a Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette

Pork Chops Two Ways (braised and grilled)
with Whipped Potatoes, and Asparagus on Ratatouille

We also sampled a Cabernet Sauvignon from Sand Hill Vineyards in Calumet and a red from Chapel Creek Winery in El Reno. Chapel Creek wines are produced by students at the Redlands Community College.

And for dessert:

Cherry-Pecan Tarts
with Southern Comfort Whipped Cream

The catfish, which was freaking awesome—flavorful, buttery, non-fishy—was from Henryetta; the pork from Guymon; the pecans from Shawnee.

  1. Sand Hill Vineyards cabernet, merlot and zin have won numerous awards in top-tier national and international competitions. Oklahoma is very lucky to have Andrew as enology instructor for our future winemakers.

    Chapel Creek wines are the product of enology classes at Redlands Community College. 2007 was the first full vintage, but they already have a following among oenophiles.

    Thanks for the post.


  2. How awesome would it be to take a wine making class in community college. Extremely awesome.
    Everything sounds dee-lish and local! I saw on The Coach House’s Web site that Oklahoma was the first state chosen to represent at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. We were lucky to be at Epcot during that festival and it was great!!
