We Have Exclusive Discount Tickets To Food For Thought, Plus A Pair To Give Away

by Steven Doyle

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. As we draw closer to Fall and Winter that will all change and we will be announcing all sorts of fun events.

The fourth annual Food for Thought event will be held from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, September 22, at the Frontiers of Flight Museum. Showcasing Dallas/Fort Worth’s finest chefs and cuisine, Food for Thought benefits Big Thought, one of Dallas’ leading nonprofits dedicated to improving public education through creative learning (and Big Thought happens to be celebrating its 25th anniversary this year). At the event, former DISD School Board Trustee Edwin Flores will be honored with the coveted Gavel of Excellence Award.  Food For Thought is presented by Lockheed Martin in partnership with the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers.                

Food for Thought features more than a dozen chefs from our city’s best establishments presenting signature “tastes” of their specialties during the evening. The event also includes live entertainment, silent auction, open premium bar and special awards presentation. 

Featured chefs include David Balli, Chiloso Mexican Bistro; Tiffany Derry, Private Social; Samir Dhurandhar, Nick and Sam’s; Michael Ehlert, Campo Modern Country Bistro; Estevan Galindo, Hattie’s; Lisa Garza, Sissy’s Southern Kitchen; Brad Holt, Two Sisters To-Go; Khanh Nguyen, Dalat; Janice Provost, Parigi; Matt Reddick, formerly of Il Cane Rosso; Jon Stevens, Nosh; Jonathan Stirnweis, Two Sisters Catering; Nicole Van Camp, Pop-ups; Tre Wilcox, Village Marquee Bar and Grill; and more. Additional stations include offerings from Whole Foods, Artizone.com and Kruffles.

Tickets are $150, but craveDFW has the hook up. Go to their website and enter promotion code DAYL and save $100. That’s right… $50 tickets. This is a great cause and you will have some terrific food and drinks, meet fun chefs, and many of your favorite craveDFW staffers will be there.

If $50 tickets still doesn’t motivate you, and it should, mention something about one of the participating chefs below in comments. We will award two VIP passes next week at random from the pool of entries.

  1. I met Tre Wilcox at the Chefs for Farmers event and he was so gracious and friendly. Also, his food is fantastic!

  2. Janice Provost is one of my all time favorites. Not only is her food fresh, delicious and inventive, she is totally invested in her community. She never hesitates to donate to a cause when needed. Thank you Janice for all you do!

  3. Where Estevan Galindo goes, so go I.

    Jon Stevens and Nosh continue to serve up some of Dallas’ best food!

    I’m new to Dallas and this looks like such a fantastic event; to be able to sample food from Tre Wilcox and Tiffany Derry under one roof, as well as so many other talented chefs, would be stellar!

    Kudos to Chef Janice Provost of Parigi–what a giving spirit and commitment to the community!

  7. Tiffany Derry met my brother, a pre-teen aspiring chef, and was so nice to answer questions and give him tips!

    My wife and I are huge fans of Tiffany Derry from her days at Go Fish Ocean Club. Can’t wait to try Private Social.

    Michael Ehlert, formerly of Daniel Boulud’s DBGB, was probably the perfect person to take Campo out of McCalister’s shadow.

    I love Tiffany Derry and Private Social, and looking forward to trying out the rest!

    I’m confused…. tickets are only $75 per person (not $150) – unless the DAYL discount code is only accepted with the purchase of 2 tickets?

    I went to the Chefs for Farmers event and sampled Tre Wilcox’s food. I enjoyed both the food and his gracious friendly manner.

  13. I am a teaching artist for Big Thought. It is a fantastic organization. Big Thought has in-school programs and after-school programs, library and community programs. It is a pleasure and an honor to work with Big Thought. We teach cooking life skills.
