Our society has always been obsessed with “sauce.”  Dallas Cowboys Cole Beasley is the “sauce” on the field, Beyoncé has “hot sauce” in her bag, and good “sauce” will take a meal to the next level, and the most important… good liquor is the “sauce.”  So it should be no surprise that when McDonalds announced they were bottling up their “special sauce” to give away, the public ate it up!  Society has waited since 1967 to get their hands on the special sauce and now they have the opportunity to grab one of the limited 10,000 bottles.   Continue reading

This year CFF celebrated the life of a fallen chef, Randall Copeland who owned restaurant Ava in Rockwall. In addition, the event was able to pay out checks to many local farmers and raise awareness that even North Texas has some major talent when it comes to agriculture. What better way to show off our produce, meats, cheeses, bees and wines than to host one of the best parties the city has ever witnessed.     Continue reading
