Obama: not the only Hawaiian in Indy this week

Just in time for the weekend, the Goose has Hawaiian Monchong, Kajiki, and sushi grade Tuna. Don't let the funny names fool you. Monchong is a delicate fish that's perfect for pan-frying. Kajiki is a sturdier filet that stands up to grilling but sizzles nicely in the pan, too. Fat, ruby, sushi grade tuna...aloha, what more can we say?

Chris is swooning over these fins. "This looks so good, I just want to eat it for dinner myself," he said as he sliced up the first orders. Need a little inspiration? Just ask Chef Chris how he'll prepare dinner tonight!

Quick, pull up your grass skirt and run over to the Goose for these fish just hours from the ocean water.

There's more than corn in Indiana: Home Grown Indiana book signing

Finally, a book you can judge by its cover.

Home Grown Indiana by Christine Barbour and Scott Hutcheson is a county by county guide to local food in Indiana. From winemakers and farmers to chefs and food festivals, there's a hearty slice of Indiana's food culture between the covers.

Stop by the Goose this Saturday, Oct. 4, from 10am -- 2pm to meet authors Christine and Scott. They'll be signing copies of the book (also available at the Goose!) and chatting about the adventures of chronicling our Hoosier home grown treats.
