Pop ups, barbecue brisket, ribeyes, frito pies, beauty queens…it was a busy week for the Scrumptious crew as we fanned out across Austin to provide minute by minute coverage of our food scene. It’s cook week starting right now, as we begin 6 days of hard core prep to get ready for our Sat Feb 9th Pop Up restaurant at Tamale House East. We’ll still be coming up for air at least once daily to get an article up on this site, but most of our momentum will be pointing toward how to best honor the 80lbs of heritage pork we’re cooking come Saturday night

Y’all like reading about pop up restaurants and we like writing about them. Easily the most popular article we penned this week: Our 5th guide to Austin Texas pop up restaurants http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/2013/1/28/Austin-Guide-To-Pop-Up-Restaurants-5Longhouse-RevivalLoca-Doro-Via-Franklin-BBQScrumptiouschef?adminview=true
