Kingfisher Summer Road Trip: Midwest

More Info

As we’ve mentioned before – and loyal KF fans know – Kingfisher is currently on a culinary “road trip.”

Last month, Kingfisher featured two weeks of cuisine from the Pacific Northwest. The road trip is now on its next stop.

This time, the food is inspired by the Great Plains and the Midwest.

Chef Jeff Azersky prepared the Midwest menu, which is available until Tuesday, July 26.
