The story behind fair food


As many of you may know, the fair is filled with a variety of guilty pleasure food items. Today, our Kylie Walker went to check out a few of the food booths herself at the best of Humboldt Redwood Acres Fair.

Cotton candy, funnel cakes, and fried food are a few options that come to mind when we think of fair food, but one restaurant goes against the norm, with their European twist.

The Boardroom was started with the intention of making meat the “old way” where they would hang and cure meats for two to three months at a time.

Although the boardroom does focus on the European style way, it doesn’t stop them from incorporating local ingredients. Diane’s sweet heat and Trinity River Vineyards, are just a couple of the few local products that make an appearance at the restaurant.

The boardroom restaurant is open to those 21 and over Thursday through Saturday night from 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Otherwise, they’ll be set up at the fair outside of the restaurant, and open to all ages during the week.
