Delicious Circus Inspired Food

Not sure if you guys ever heard of our Sip ‘n See (kidding … I think that every person that ever looked at the internet has seen it) but I realized that I never shared the recipes to the circus themed food by RoomForty. And while this isn’t a food blog, these things were delicious (and quite impressive) so keeping them a secret is just rude.

Room Forty Churro and Corndog

RoomForty is the catering company behind The Fig House and they do high concept, high end, delicious food with a gastro bent. I told them I wanted some circus inspired food and Steve and Libry came back with some modern recipes for churros, candied apples, truffle popcorn, corndog lollipops and my personal favorite meatball barbells – going along with our strongman theme.

Their chef, Libry, is a bad ass who has an insane talent for turning a concept for a food on its head. Also he is a bad ass because he has lots of tattoos and therefore I’m supposed to be terrified of him, as my parents instructed me when I was a child, but i’m not because he’s a very nice man.

So here are the recipes for the churros and the corndog lollipops for your cooking pleasure. All these recipes are by the RoomForty team and while I don’t cook, I do eat and they were delicious.

The meatball barbells are a secret recipe that were so delicious they probably had the meat of baby unicorns in them (no! kidding! sad!), so to get those you just must have RoomForty cater your next party or wedding.

    This is awesome! I’m a chef by trade and I’m constantly on the look out for other chef’s ideas and work. Such a great post, I love that they were willing to share their recipes with you… also the circus theme is brilliant! You are a styling magician.

    This food looks beyond delicious and now I want to create it all. If only I had a child to throw a circus themed party for… Props to RoomForty to coming up with some great and fun food ideas that are completely out of the box.

    This food and party could not be cuter. I will definitely be attempting the churros later this evening. Fingers crossed that they turn out just as good as yours looked. Ive been a long time reader and I love that you are throwing in some recipes for us to try. Keep it up.

    This looks great, I wanna eat all of this right now! The dumbbells look super cute. Thanks for sharing.

    Everything looks delicious. Churros are one of my favourite things ever and sadly they don’t exist where I live … your post made me realize I never thought of making them myself :)

  7. My mouth is officially watering. I can’t believe I’ve never eaten a meatball dumbbell before! For shame!

  8. Children should be terrified of people with tattoos? My son recently climbed into his uncle’s friend’s lap (the first day he met her), noticed her large, beautiful mermaid tattoo and announced, “Sometimes I like to wear tattoos on my arms!” Lord help me when he hits adolescence!

  9. sometime i feel like to leave my IT job and join the chef community. love to see your inspiration of doing this..
    loved it..

  10. I certainly appreciate you for choosing this topic and about qualitative data. Sharing more this type of valuable post.

  11. Imperative attempt for learning! Every section is a wonderful write up with a validate thoughts. Thanks for sharing!
