Kolaches, a Little North of West

PSKolache7by Trey Moran

I had heard and read about Pearl Snap Kolaches for months but had yet make it over there, so I went.  They are located in the old “Tres Joses” location on White Settlement road not far from University Drive where the road makes the big “S” curve. There is not much in the way of signage but you can’t miss it.

Inside is setup to be like a comfortable coffee shop/lounge with couches, tables and chairs. The atmosphere is pretty laid back. Some traces of the Mexican restaurant are still visible, such as the wall sized bullfighter mural, which adds to the charm.  As you enter, the counter is directly in front of you with all of the offerings displayed. A large chalk board menu is just above but it’s hard not to stare and salivate at what is laid out before you in the case. These really are not your traditional Czech kolaches and what sets these apart from the others I have tried is the dough. These are very light and slightly yeasty. Imagine a Hawaiian sweet roll with a little more density.   Continue reading

The Joy of Ballpark Food: From Hot Dogs to Haute Cuisine

texasby Steven Doyle

Baseball is a game that is identified with food. We even sing about it at every ballpark during the seventh inning stretch: “….buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack…” The famous song was written by Jack Norworth in 1908.

From the early part of the twentieth century until the 1980s, classic baseball fare consisted mostly of hot dogs, ice cream, peanuts, and Cracker Jack. Then ballparks slowly began to sell new items. A proliferation of new food offerings during the 1990s was fueled by the opening of twelve new major league ballparks.   Continue reading

Eat Me: Short Rib Benedict At Little Red Wasp

Short Rib Benedictby Steven Doyle

The brunch menu as the Little Red Wasp in Fort Worth is pretty crave worthy. The cheddar chicken biscuit is tops in its game with a huge plateful sized slab of chicken sandwiched between that ethereal biscuit that is near lighter than air. It gives us all reason to make the drive to the downtown Fort Worth restaurant. The chilaquiles are also tops in their game. But what makes us truly lose control is the Benedict.    Continue reading

A Trip To Square Burger In McKinney

by Steven Doyle

What do you do with a chef who graduated from the California Culinary Academy, worked at Spago, Abacus, Five Sixty and numerous other spots of similar caliber? Some might say have the chef move to McKinney and open a café that sells  great burgers and beer. That is the case with chef Craig Brundege who operates Square Burger in McKinney.

Square Burger has been running strong for over four years offering their power-house line up of great burgers and daily specials that will often include fresh fish and pastas. But what drives us 30 miles up I75 to downtown McKinney from the inner-workings of Dallas are those haunting burgers.   Continue reading

Television and the movies often rely on familiar subjects to engage the viewer, and certainly food has historically been a large part of that device. From the very beginning of movie history with Charlie Chaplin doing his table ballet in Gold Rush, to the many films produced in recent history such as Danish film Babette’s Feast, Chocolat, or the very erotic Nine and a 1/2
