Urban Epicurious Top 10 Food Porn Moments: Scardello

by Bev Garvin

Bev Garvin is a friend of craveDFW, a local social media buff and photographer who maintains a pretty cool local site called Urban Epicurious. Bev joins us to celebrate her top 10 favorite food porn moments of the recent past. We will run these over successive days so you may savor each bite.

Another equally seductive sandwich, but for totally different reasons, is the Sweet Italian from Scardello Artisan Cheese near the corner of Lemmon and Oak Lawn in Dallas. I stopped in for a quickie and grabbed this to go one day while out running errands at lunch. It’s lusciousness swept off my feet as I indulged in it’s niceties.  Continue reading

On Pure Ground Producing Ali’s Bacon Bliss

by Steven Doyle

We have missed Ali Morgan sending in her weekly picks of her favorite cheeses, but in her defense the girl has been insanely busy. While she is out spreading the curd about cheeses people are listening. She is now responsible for many cheese boards you will find across the city.

In fact, we just spoke with chef David Anthony Temple (that’s DAT to you and me), he said he plans to feature Ali’s top picks each week at the yet-to-open Mason Bar. One of the picks that will be featured weekly is Ali’s very own bacon-goat cheese that she created called Ali’s Bacon Bliss and is now being produced by On Pure Ground Dairy in a cool collaboration.          Continue reading

Scardello Sources Local Charcuterie

by Steven Doyle

We often reel about the charcuterie program at The Grape and for good reason. Brian Luscher is a mad man and has an insane meat program going on at his Greenville Avenue restaurant. Today we heard about a new program at Scardello and it smacks of Luscher’s DNA. We just got off the phone with one of Scardello’s cheesemongers, Ali Morgan, and she gave us the skinny on the new charcuterie being offered at the cheese shop on Oak Lawn.

“We have been wanting to offer charcuterie for some time. We have a few nice things currently like a Prosciutto di Parma, but we wanted much more. I spoke with Brian and he had me stop in for this whole charcuterie lesson,” said Morgan.          Continue reading

Chocolate Tour Visits Dude, Sweet

by Steven Doyle

Last weekend I was able to help guide the Dallas by Chocolate Tour, a new tour company that shuttles guests around in a luxury bus making a handful of stops only to taste chocolate. In the next few days I will share some of the stops and the chocolates we sampled. This past tour took us to Neuhaus Café  in North Dallas, Scardello, who sells some pretty damned good chocolate including Oh* Brownies and paired samples with cheese, CocoAndrē and Dude, Sweet Chocolate.

Today we take a look at Dude, Sweet Chocolate where pastry chef Katherine Clapner hosted the group of chocolate tourists and shared her insight into her own brand.  Continue reading
