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…

The Greek Food Festival of Dallas is a Hit Rain or Shine

Come rain or shine, people are going to get their gyros. The 62nd Greek Food Festival of Dallas was hit with a little bit of the wet stuff, but, the annual 3 day festival carried on. With their biggest turnout on Sunday, guests lined up for mouthwatering gyros, surrendered to the honeyed sweetness of loukoumades and gleefully chomped down on scrumptious souvlaki. And, don’t even talk about the spanakopita, dolmades or fried feta bites. Those are just the classics. New to this year’s festival was Galaktoboureko, a creamy custard held inside a flaky crispy phyllo pastry shell. It was a weekend of gracious grub, traditional Greek dancing and an all…

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

Itis Occurs During Soul Food Truck Fest

    Beef tips and rice, fried chicken, catfish and collard greens. Surprisingly, that’s not the menu for your grandmother’s famous Sunday dinner. On September 30th Austin, Texas kicked off their first ever Soul Food Truck Festival. With grub from a variety of the city’s best soul food trucks, event goers made their way the Freedom Plaza at the Carver Museum to get their fill of #itis.

Each location had their fair share of lengthy lines, but appetites seemed especially enthused by the Rolling Rooster. While…

Greek Food Festival 2017 Recap

  Already stuffed from the spinach and cheese inside crispy phyllo, aka spanakopita and seasoned dolmas, I still yearned for another gyro. Just as I began waddling closer to the stand, I realized this belly could handle no more Greek goodness.

The three day long festivities included dancing, music, shopping and absolutely mouthwatering Greek food. The food. There’s so much to say about the food. It tastes like spending the weekend inside the kitchen of your sweet little Greek grandmother and being fed loads of love by the forkfuls. Some of the tantalizing…
