For the “good news” portion of the day at Dutch & Co: Caleb Shriver and Phillip Perrow have been nominated for Food & Wine magazine’s The People’s Best New Chef award in the Mid-Atlantic category:
Why They’re Amazing: Because they’re enlivening Richmond’s food scene with unexpected ingredient combinations like spiced pork rillettes with honey-roasted nuts, pig’s skin corn bread and pickled squash.
Grill Masters: On Saturdays, the pair serves their weekly changing, house-made, All-American hot dogs (one past concoction was a French Dip hot dog with smoky beef jus) and not-so-American stroopwafels for dessert. You can also buy packages of each week’s franks to grill in your own backyard.
The two chefs are up against 9 other contenders, including Rappahannock’s Dylan Fultineer.
