Little D Farmers Market in Trinity Groves

20140511_141808by Steven Doyle

Spring is in full swing and that means it is time for all the beautiful farmer’s markets to begin showing their wares. There are many to choose from across our city’s landscape, and the newest addition brings us to Trinity Groves. What better reason to make the Margaret Hunt-Hill Bridge crossing than to check out all the many restaurants, and on the first, second, and third Sundays between 10am and 3pm, dozens of pop up tents with a bounty of fresh produce and local goods produced by your neighbors.

We checked out the market this past Sunday to find many interesting vendors set up in front of the main building in Trinity Groves, just past the line of restaurant patios. Here you can sample great baked goods from Village Baking Company, or grab a shot of java from Noble Coyote Roasters.   Continue reading

The Next Kitchen LTO Chef Is Brooke Egger

brookby Steven Doyle

The next Kitchen LTO chef is the talented young lady from California, Brooke Eggers.

Brooke Egger was first suggested by the current LTO chef, Eic Shelton. They both competed on Food Network’s Cut Throat Kitchen, and Egger has now flown to Dallas three times to perform tastings for the chef gig. Egger comes from a long line of butchers dating back to the 1600′s, and there are still Egger Meat Markets in Washington, Idaho and Oregon.

Egger claims to make the very best burger, which includes tarragon, sherry and “other elements”, and uses a Norwegian cheese to top off the special meat blend, along with a Tennessee mustard slaw with a tarragon cream and a salted brioche bun. Egger also has her own line of culinary war in the works.    Continue reading

Who Will Win The Next Kitchen LTO Top Chef Position?

DSC01597by Steven Doyle

Trinity Groves was hopping last night as Kitchen LTO began its voting ritual in search of its next chef who will take the helm behind the revolving kitchen door. Kitchen LTO’s concept is a unique one where chefs vie for four months as executive chef at the Trinity Groves restaurant. This makes for a heated battle, and entertainment for its patrons who lined up to sample dishes from a small handful of hopeful chefs. Last night chef Scott Townend took top honors in the initial public voting, but all the chefs are still expecting to ultimately win the post through additional public voting online this week. The voting last night was extremely close, with a mere two votes separating first and second place.     Continue reading

Ready For Round Three Of Kitchen LTO At Trinity Groves?

sheltonby Steven Doyle

Kitchen LTO is coming up on its third round of chef incarnations for the Trinity Groves restaurants. Remember the concept is to attract and install a new chef every 4 months. Chefs are whitteled down by committee, and then voted on by the public. You are able to meet and taste offerings from the finalists on Sunday, May 4th, then encouraged to go online to vote for your favorite.

The first round chef was won by Norman Grimm, followed by Eric Shelton. The chefs chosen attract quite a bit of attention from the media, not just locally, but across the country. It is an excellent means of promotion for an up-and-coming chef, or a seasoned chef that needs a boost of publicity to jump start their career in a new direction. This next round of chefs we notice several from both categories.     Continue reading
