Remember the Cute Film Julie & Julia? Behold “& Julia”

Julie-Julia-2009by Steven Doyle

Another beautiful day in the neighborhood as the craveRADIO staff hosted another slate of fantastic guests. This week we had on the charming and talented Chef Dean Fearing from Fearing’s in the beautiful Ritz Carlton Dallas in Uptown. We had a spirited conversation about wine, women and song, as well as BBQ and that one time when Fearing almost murdered the most beloved woman on earth, Julia Child. Fearing also chats with us about his new Fall menu which is about to debut any day now. We also chatted about certain menu items which can never, ever go away. Think lobster tacos, his legendary tortilla soup and that amazing banana pudding that just makes you feel at home.    Continue reading
