I saw the On The Run Tour back in August and I was obsessed. This menu is the culmination of late night texts between my punniest foodie friends. I wanted to incorporate culinary elements from the south as a nod to Beyonce’s southern roots. It eventually evolved into liquored-up, southern comfort food with a little twist, which is generally my style anyway. I’ve provided links to all the recipes from the menu below, so you can host your own Beyoncé-themed dinner party for the On The Run Tour premier on HBO, September 20th!
Four courses. Two cocktails. Ten of my favorite people and all of our favorite Bey songs playing in the background. A super perfect night.
First Course: Drunk in Rub
Second Course: If I Were a Po’Boy
Third Course: Braise-y In Love
Fourth Course: PEARtition
The Cocktails: Me, Myself and Rye + Pretty Burps
None of this would have been possible without the encouragement, help, inspiration and humor of my friends. And they all happen to be gorgeous. How lucky am I?
The man who made everything gorgeous, photographer and host: Mikee Catacutan
My tribeswoman, who took pictures while I was busy cookin’: Chantal Pasag
Extra special shoutout to Tanya, who drove all the way down from Irvine to eat with us!
Finally, a super huge big thank you to everyone that ate all my foods then helped me do dishes after lol – Mikee, Don, Brianne, Jervae, Brandon, Jorge, Chantal, Jason, Natalie and Tanya! Mama was tired and y’all really hooked it up!
I love you like xo.
