Meet Chef Annie West

DSC09899by Steven Doyle

Last evening Chef DAT, owner of Twenty-Seven, opened his doors to a unique chef in her own right right, Annie West. The event was a small gathering which was perfect for the Deep Ellum location. The event was as unique as DAT’s restaurant, which is typically closed on a Sunday evening. Chef West had this brilliant plan to offer a special tasting of cupcakes, or cuppies as she calls them, with beer.

Now to look at West you would not think she even drank beer, but she does enjoy a nice brew on occasion, and last night she shared some of her local favorites along with some delicious hand-made treats. The pastries were exquisite, and it shows her extreme attention to detail. Notice in our photos the lattice work, all done by hand.   Continue reading
