Dallas has so many wonderful hot spots that can supply your secret stash of chocolate for Valentine’s Day. We would certainly recommend Dude, Sweet Chocolate with three locations in the DFW area, CocoAndre in Oak Cliff, and Kate Wiser who will be making an appearance at Eatzi’s both February 13th and 14th for all your sweet shopping needs. Don’t forget Katy Priore’s bark Chocolate that she sells at Carbone’s and other Dallas locations such a Bolsa Mercado.
We do love our chocolate. We also also love it in souffle form, and we have found some of the best places to drop a few dollars on the light and airy dessert that makes a meal more special, especially this time of year when hearts go fluttering at the mere mention of the sweet dish.

Billed as the eighth wonder of the world, the Chocolate Wunderfall at Golden Corral is now fully operational. Here you can share your reach into a splash of warm chocolaty ooze with dozens of strangers, looking gleefully into their eyes as you coalesce bits of marshmallow and fruit into a pool of sweet gluttony. How can this possibly be a good idea? The fountain has always creeped me a bit, reminding me of Augustus Gloop who nearly drowned in Wonka’s chocolate river. These are the things that sweet bacterial dreams are made of. Continue reading
If you missed last week’s broadcast of craveRADIO you are in luck. We have the replay at the bottom of this page waiting for you to listen in. We had in studio the chef from Del Frisco Double Eagle Steakhouse, David Holben, who taught us the finer points of beef including how it is aged, prepared and enjoyed. We also ran through Holben’s austere work history and how he became a chef. This is always interesting to us, and love to see how the most successful chefs started their career. It is never the same.
Holben also discussed the new Del Frisco Grilles that are popping up all over the planet. What a fantastic concept. Continue reading
