Win VIP Prize Packs To Taste Of Dallas This Weekend

by Steven Doyle

Taste of Dallas 2012 is this weekend and we have the hook up. We are giving away not one but two VIP prize packages for this fun family event. There is no better way than Taste of Dallas to try foodie fare from more than 60 of Dallas’ best restaurants: with no entrée more than $3, participants have the opportunity to savor plenty of different tastes without breaking the bank.

At the heart of Taste of Dallas are the chef demonstrations from high-profile chefs, teaching everyone their hard-won secrets behind their favorite recipes.  This year, the chefs will cook to music in genres they have chosen, from classic rock to country to bluegrass and opera and everything in-between. Chefs include Anthony Van Camp from SER Steak & Spirts at Hilton Anatole, David McMillan from Screen Door and The Commissary, Chef John Franke from Frontburner Restaurants, David Smith from Westin Galleria, Gerard Thompson from Rough Creek Lodge, Matt Mortimer with Blue Goose and Aw Shucks and more. Each chef demo includes an exciting demonstration and complimentary sampling from their exclusive restaurants.          

Taste of Dallas debuts Taste Tavern this year, a new beer and wine tasting area for those interested in all that Texas craft beers and wines have to offer. More than 100 beers and 50 wines will be available for sampling.  Also debuting this year is Taste of the Town, an indoor restaurant tasting experience that’s the ticket to experience fare from some of the area  restaurants in an indoor setting, where restaurants such as Baboush, Medina, Ketchup, House of Blues, Mesa Veracruz, J. Black’s and 1832 Steakhouse will offer up featured dishes for sampling and tasting on Saturday and Sunday.

Also new this year is Taste Curbside, a collection of food trucks, including: Durty Laundry, The Butchers Son, Nammi Truck, Gandolfo’s New York Deli and RockStar Bake Shop, among others.

Besides all the food and drink possibilities, there will also be plenty of entertainment on hand.

To win one of the two VIP Packs just make a comment below and tell us your favorite taste in Dallas. Winner will be selected at random and we will have the package available at will call under your name. The event takes place July 13th, 14th, 15th, 2012 at Fair Park.
