Food News: Flying Saucer Going Big with Local Charcuterie Package

Plus, a local honey collective and cider company team up for a battle of neighborhoods.

By Timothy Malcolm December 7, 2020

Meats (maybe like these), plus cheeses, sweets, and beer ... what more could you want?

Whether it's a gift for your food-and-beverage-loving friend or family member, a centerpiece for your small and socially distanced holiday party, or the foodstuff to get you through the last week of 2020, Flying Saucer Draught Emporium has a heck of an item for you.

Flying Saucer is selling a $125 charcuterie board bundle that includes six beers with  barrel-aged selections (somewhere in there will be beer from St. Bernardus), glassware, more than a pound of cheeses from Houston Dairymaids, Italian and German charcuterie, smoked meats from Feges BBQ, and desserts from Fluff Bake Bar, among other goodies. Order by calling 713-228-9472 and pick up either Dec. 23 or 24.

Delivery-focused Click Virtual Food Hall has added to its offerings with Fair Game, a concept inspired by renaissance fair grub. You can get 1.5-pound smoked turkey legs in a variety of flavors (like teriyaki or Nashville hot, or smothered by macaroni and cheese from BOH Pasta and Houston Dairymaids). House-made corn dogs are on their way, too. Visit Click here.

Houston Cider Co. and Bee2Bee Honey Collective have teamed up for a collaborative cider six-pack. Each bottle of cider features honey from a different Houston neighborhood (those featured are Candlelight Forest, Kashmere Gardens, the Mahatma Gandhi District, Seabrook, Spring Branch, and Westbury). Customers will have a chance to vote for their favorite cider, with the winning bottle getting that neighborhood $500 for bee-friendly projects. Get your six-pack for $15, or pay $25 for a six-pack and special glass. 

According to CultureMap, chefs Billy Kin and Taylor McDaniel (formerly Blackbird Izakaya) are teaming up to serve not-so-secret omakase dinners at Hidden Omakase, opening this month at 5353 W. Alabama St. in the Galleria area. Per the piece, look for $150 dinners steered by the chefs with lots of fresh Japanese fish.
