For The Love of Jackson

jackson1by Steven Doyle

If involved in any scene whatsoever, food, fashion or anything involving fun, you know of the man named Jackson. A single named entity right here in Dallas. He owns the exciting company Fluent, which is an ultra Dallas concierge service, or a lifestyle management company, that brings clients closer to the things they need most. Like most of Dallas, I consider Jackson a friend. If nothing else, the man inspires us all to be the best we can be at all things.

Jackson is a true Dallas icon, and today he needs us. Jackson recently suffered a stroke leaving him paralyzed on half his body.

Chef Graham Dodds’ Plow & Vine Dinner for Eden Creek Farm

by Steven Doyle

I spoke with Central 214’s executive chef Graham Dodds some months ago about Eden Creek Farms. They experienced a particularly rough 2011 due to the drought, and 2012 hasn’t been any easier. At that time Dodds mentioned that Steve and Kristine Orth might actually give up on their farming efforts, and it would be sad to lose this organic, bio-dynamic, bio-intensive and sustainable source of produce.     Continue reading
