CFF Main Event Recap 2018

Patiently waiting in line to meet up with my devouring destiny, I struck up a conversation with a couple. “We look forward to this event every year,” she happily exclaimed. Though they’d been tempted to attend other grubby galas around town, The Main Event for Chefs for Farmers ALWAYS got their coins. Once again, it was money well spent. Held at the historic Dallas Heritage Village for the first time, this year appetites were allured by a variety of delicious bites but wagyu beef took center stage. Some took a traditional approach to the tender meat, but others went a cut above, like the Wagyu Beef Gyro Airbread or the…

CFF Kicks off with The Mix Off 2018

    It’s nearly time for one of the most delightfully delicious food and drinking events of the year, Chefs for Farmers. Once again, the annual premier celebration of food and wine kicked off with The Mix Off presented by Maker’s Mark and Patron. Sippers gathered at DEC on Dragon to become judges for a day, and vote on which cocktails would become the signature drink for CFF 2018. Of course no CFF event is complete without a few mouthwatering bites. Like a tender beefy taco topped with crushed chicharrones and ox tail fried rice to die for. Get your tickets for the main event in November. TXmB

The Return to Foodie Wonderland Part 2

ast Sunday, I got my religion handed to me in the form of fried chicken wings, brisket, beets, a whole lot of different booze and other incredible foods during this year’s Chefs For Farmers Main Event, or what I prefer calling it, Foodie Wonderland. My first stop was one I’d regrettably missed last year called The Biscuit Bar. Here Jeffrey Hobbs and Jake Depew of Slow Bone concocted something life changing called Randall’s Biscuits, fried chicken, and Jason’s Double Secret Probation Gravy. Oh, and it was served with a slice of thick cut peppered bacon, plus you had your choice of dressing those soft baby biscuits with jalapeño jelly, fresh…

The Return to Foodie Wonderland Part 1

twirled my fork in the pesto pasta, slipped the tainted green noodles into my mouth and chewed. Satisfying, sure. But, I knew that it had happened again. After attending Chefs For Farmers for another year I’d become a food prude. You may have already read how incredible Chefs For Farmers was this year, well, allow me to reiterate this fact again. This year, I had the delicious opportunity to experience both the Street Food Night Market on Saturday evening, and The Main Event held on Sunday. Held outdoors in the Design District, upon entering, my whole body turned into a taste bud. I began light, yet robust with New Orleans…

Chef’s for Farmers Mix-Off 2016 Recap

Chef’s for Farmers Cocktail and Sous Chef Mix-Off 2016 Another Chefs for Farmers event, goes off without a hitch. During this year’s Chef’s for Farmers Cocktail and Sous Chef Mix-Off, guests enjoyed creative bites and booze while feasting on the music and views from DEC on Dragon. A savory, soft, pork tongue tamale, made with fresh masa, sweet corn avocado and chiles from Tony Ibarra of Small Brewpub easily won me over. I even managed to shimmy my way back downstairs for a second forking towards the end of the evening. Meanwhile upstairs, Uchi served up a smoking kabob with tender sweetbreads and beef. Sarah Green from the Joule upgraded…

Welcome to Foodie Wonderland: Culinary Village 2015

Like a castle of all things exquisitely edible the Chefs for Farmers main event Culinary Village was a splash of taste from start to finish. Although the village was originally scheduled to be held outside at Lee Park near Turtle Creek, Texas weather decided otherwise, as a monsoon basically took over the city during that weekend. Impressively, within a short period of time, the organizers for the Culinary Village turned Gilley’s from an event venue to a multi room food and booze haven unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. There was no shortage of tongue tingling items during the Culinary Village. Etched in fall flavors, the rustic taste of autumn…
