Cumberbatch Sweet Tater Torte

New at Hyde Park on Duval: Cumberbatch Sweet Tater Torte!

By | Central location, Community, Food, Food Events, Holidays, Uncategorized | No Comments

(photo from Cumberbatch Sweet Tater Torte)

In honor of both Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and a longtime friendship, Hyde Park Bar & Grill on Duval will offer slices of Cumberbatch Sweet Tater Torte this week for $4.50 a slice.

Described by Austin American Statesman food writer Addie Broyles as “unique …The cakelike crust on the bottom and top envelop a sweet, smooth and buttery sweet potato filling,” the torte is handmade with love by Jennifer Cumberbatch. In the 1980’s, Jennifer’s husband Ashton played basketball at Enfield Park with Hyde Park Bar & Grill founder Bick Brown. The 3 cooked up the idea of Jennifer using Hyde Park’s commercial kitchen to make her tortes, which are, in her words “baked from the heart: it is memory, a tribute to those who have gone before, love emanating from the work of my hands, and an ode to family fellowship and the community table.”

After a few years of Jennifer baking the pies, and Hyde Park selling them by the slice while she sold the whole, life took another turn for the Cumberbatches and they put Jennifer’s pie business on the back burner in favor of leading a congregation.

But life has a way of coming full circle, especially when it comes to pies. So when Addie Broyles asked Bick about an article she was writing about Jennifer Cumberbatch’s return to sweet potato torte making, a phone call between Jennifer and Bick stirred their interest in having the tasty, historically-based dessert once again at Hyde Park Bar & Grill.

Remnants-of-Weird-David-Fridlund

David Fridlund’s Art at Hyde Park on Duval, Dec 6 – Jan 16th, Art Party Dec 7!

By | Art, Central location, Community | No Comments

David Fridlund’s collection “Remnants of Weird” captures Austin in transition.

We’re pleased to display paintings by David Fridlund

at Hyde Park Bar & Grill on Duval, Dec 6 – Jan 16th

David Fridlund isn’t a native Austinite by any means, but in his seven years as an Austin resident, the Swedish-born artist has created some of the most poignant Austin-themed art the city has ever seen.

Offering an interesting perspective as an Austin transplant who arrived at the crux of the transformation of Austin from a small, ‘weird’ city to a fast-growing “big city,” Fridlund’s “Remnants of Weird” collection strikes a chord with both new and long-time Austinites.

David Fridlund Tiniest Bar Seems Even Tinier Now

Fridlund’s work captures Austin in transition. “Tiniest Bar Seems Even Tinier Now”

Hyde Park bar & Grill, an Austin-original restaurant, is pleased to host Fridlund’s Austin-themed collection as both a “celebration of life” for the city we once knew and an open-arms welcome to the newcomers of Austin.

Fridlund’s pieces will be displayed Dec 6-Jan 16, with an Art Opening Party on Dec 7th from 5-7pm. We invite all Austinites both new and “old” to come see a veritable piece of history in the making,  the changing scene of Austin,  recorded using colored pencils.

Death or rebirth? It’s all in your point of view.

We’ll conduct an in-depth interview with the Artist on Dec 6th, and invite you to leave any questions you have for Fridlund in the comments of this post!

FROM THE ARTIST:

Art exhibition opening. This is the first time I am showing my work at a larger scale! I have been working for a couple of years now on a series of pictures from around Austin; places that are being torn down, altered or just places that I find attractive and beautiful or somehow interesting. I work with color pencils on paper.
