Last week on craveRADIO we crashed Chef Kent Rathbun’s big BBQ Workshop at his KB Woodfire facility in Plano. This awesome venue is where you can host your next party in a restaurant-like setting all your own. On the program Kent explains how the venue works, and we also chat up his catering chef Jeff Qualls who can literally cook fresh for 1000’s of guests at this location, or yours.
Also on the program we hit up the guys from the Green Egg, the BBQ masters who work wonders with this very unique grill. If that wasn’t enough, we also spoke with Four Corner’s Brewing Company owner George Esquivel who was supplying beer for the workshop. Continue reading

This week on craveRADIO you will hear the show we produced at Kent Rathbun’s BBQ Workshop at his catering facility, KB Woodfire Grill in Plano. The show was fast paced with more guests than we normally host including Kent Rathbun and KB catering chef Jeff Qualls who is a CIA graduate and has worked at some very notable kitchen.
In addition to the chefs we also chatted up representatives from The Green Egg, that marvelous grill that can cook virtually anything outdoors. We also visited with Four Corner’s Brewing Company owner George Esquivel who was supplying beer for the evening. Esquivel talks about the beer they are currently brewing and the new brew pub that premiers this weekend in Trinity Groves. Continue reading

The tacos and beer lovers of the North Texas will be congregating tonight at Four Corners Brewing Company for their first ever TacoCon (Cerveza). This means free admission to Four Corners in Trinity Groves, plenty of taco trucks serving up the finest available on wheels, and plenty of beer provided by the brewery. The event is free, the beer and tacos are not. If this wasn’t enough to point your car to Trinity Groves tonight, there will also be a uber cool band playing for the crowd, which is expected to reach nearly 1,000 strong. Continue reading

Cook Hall, the gastropub at the W Hotel in Dallas, held their second beer dinner last week. Four Corners Brewing Company was the showcased brewery and I was fortunate to be an invited media guest.
You could almost hand-deliver Four Corners beers to Cook hall. The brewery is at Trinity Groves on the west end of Santiago Calatrava’s glorious bridge over the Trinity River. Continue reading

That was the question facing Dallas diners last night at a sell out event at Trinity Groves. Kitchen LTO is a (oxymoron ahead) “permanent pop-up restaurant”. The site, the wine and beer list, and the staff will all be permanent (except that the staff will age at the same rate as they would anywhere else…). The chef and the restaurant design will change every four months. The LTO in the name stands for “Limited Time Offer” (my guess, “long-term operation”, turned out to be way off). This macabre, but rather brilliant idea is the brainchild of Casie Caldwell, founder and owner of Greenz, the salad chain where they teach spelling. Continue reading
