On Tuesday, November 29 Datz Restaurant Group (DRG) visited a Florida strawberry farm in Plant City. And it was awesome. And we’ll stop talking in third person beginning right……now.
We met with the Florida Strawberry Grower’s Association (FSGA) and Isabel Laessig from Family Foodie and Sunday Supper Movement. We ate fresh, delicious strawberries practically grown in our backyard. We had a strawberry picking contest with some of our favorite local bloggers and Instagrammers: Jenn Thai, Tracy Guida, and Ryan Rodriguez. Even Creative Loafing came out with us to learn about these locally grown berries, which was a ton of fun. We drove an enormous tractor and managed not to hurt anyone or any strawberries. It was a good day.
Keep an eye out for Datz, Dough, and Roux’s Florida strawberry-inspired dishes and sweets. Datz will have a revamped menu in January that’ll include dishes made with Florida strawberries. Dough will have a Florida strawberry Doughnut Ice Cream Cone and Roux will also have some Florida strawberry magic up their chef sleeves. Take a look at our Florida strawberry adventures below.
