Industrial Eats

9 Aug

Zucchini Tomato GratinTo celebrate my birthday weekend, we took the scenic drive up to the 154 to spend a few hours. I have been meaning to try Industrial Eats in Buellton ever since it opened as the couple behind the new hot spot were the caterers for our wedding. Upon telling the lady at the counter that I was celiac, she was quick to inform me that due to one oven, there is a big chance of cross contamination. They have GF pizza crusts, but they are cooked on the same surface in the oven as the regular crusts. I ended up ordering three things that were cooked in the same oven, but were in their own cast ironware. First, I had the Zucchini and Tomato Gratin without the bread that is typically included. This dish had a way of tasting so fresh and healthy even though there were massive amounts of cheese on it. Topped with basil, it was incredibly flavorful. I also ordered the Sweet Corn with Tomatillo and Bacon.

Sweet Corn with BaconCorn with house-made bacon will always be a winner in my books. Add in some Mexican flavors with the tomatillos, cheese and cilantro and you’ve got a plate of amazingness. The third thing I ordered (yes, I ordered too much per usual) was the Shrimp with Pancetta, Chile and Garlic.

Shrimp with PancettaIf I remember correctly, the woman that rung me up altered this dish as well as it usually has bread on the bottom. I loved the flavor of the large chunks of garlic. Eating here reminded me of why we used Janet and Jeff Olsson to cater our wedding… they cook amazing food using locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients. I was a bit disappointed that they wouldn’t think to cook the GF pizzas on a separate surface as they were beyond GF friendly for our event. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t hesitate to stop by again if I was in the Buellton area.
