The first bite sends the juicy center down your cheek, and delivers a quick crunchy flavor bomb with the mix of bacon and lobster.

The sidecar of tomato-avocado salad is a perfect accompaniment to this meal, especially if you add a Bloody Mary to the brunch. This Mary comes with her own salad, and is crowned with a crab claw for good measure.    Continue reading

Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children is a world leader in the treatment of pediatric orthopedic conditions, and this event raises millions of dollars to fund the hospital.   Continue reading

We talked about the Food For Thought event last month, but we wanted to give you an update. We are always getting requests for event information, and the summertime is a slow period for food events.
