whiteby Steven Doyle

Another session of Savor Dallas has been tucked under our belts, and formidable host Jim White is already at work planning the 2014 version. This year White seemed more at ease with his progeny, having planned what can only be described as a perfect series of events that lasted nearly an entire week.

The smattering of events scattered a wider path this year, having touched on new areas of Dallas including the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, up-and-comer Trinity Groves, and even the Arboretum. Each spot White visited he left a pot of gold as his legacy for this St Patrick’s Day weekend.   Continue reading

The event started at 5:00pm, not allowing for us worker bees to arrive on time. We raced in and registered at the Meyerson, ready to mix and mingle with our fellow Dallasites.       Continue reading

Savor Dallas and the Importance of Proper Glassware

by Steven Doyle

In the past few weeks we discussed how a glass can make a difference with a cocktail, a beer and certainly wine.  Wines react when exposed to air, and the bouquet, body and structure of wines react differently depending on the type and shape of the wine glass used.

A larger opening means greater exposure to air, allowing the wine to breathe, enhancing the wine’s bouquet  and structure. The rim acts like a vent, releasing or trapping the wine’s bouquet within the glass.  As you sip the wine it aerates revealing more notes and bursts the flavor.    Continue reading
