More Hatch Celebration This Sunday At Southlake Central Market

hatchby Steven Doyle

You know it is Hatch Chile Season when you smell fresh roasted peppers everywhere, and it drives you to the nearest grocery to nab a few pounds. Some to cook with now, more to freeze for those barren chile months in the dead of winter. These special peppers grown in New Mexico are Anaheim’s all grown up. They benefit from the soil and sun only spied upon in the New Mexican heat, and this season they have a bounty.

One event you may not want to miss in Southlake uses the chile as its main ingredient. Central Market has called upon several local chefs to compete Iron Chef-style in a battle to out-spice the competition.     Continue reading

Fork Fight Continues! Souk vs. Chino

fork fightby Steven Doyle

Yet another edition of Trinity Grove’s Fork Fight will be held at 7pm this Thursday at 3015, the seemingly go-to party venue for North Texas. We have a look at the menu, and list it below. I know we have discussed Trinity Groves extensively at craveDFW and on our radio program since we have one of the chef-owners Uno Immanivong on the program weekly. We feel that the Trinity Groves project is one of the most exciting things to happen in the Dallas restaurant scene in quite a while. The Fork Fight, which is the brainchild of Mark Brezenski, is a perfect way for you to actually meet the chefs and owners of each restaurant, and discover their cuisine so you can make informed decisions when these restaurants finally open their doors for business.

There are some tickets remaining for purchase at the sales website. Grab date and meet us this Thursday for what will be one of the more exciting matches so far as the chefs enter into round two of the bracket competition. Click here for tickets.

Remember, there are four courses per chef, and all are cocktail and wine paired. This makes the event a particularly great value.

I hear we may have Epicurious Emma send us a video with her pre-dinner predictions tomorrow, so watch for that. Jump for the menus.    Continue reading

craveRADIO: July 15

CraveRADIO was certainly interesting this weekend. We hosted SER execuchef Anthony Van Camp who shared with us his thoughts on converting Nana Grill into the steakhouse it is today. He brought in dinner for the crew at Crave, which was one of our favorite steaks in Dallas, the spinalis. Listen to the show at the link below to find out more what this steak is all about.

In addition, we also had on Julian Pagan, talented barman from Cedars Social who was in studio to share some of his favorite cocktail pairings and also make us a delicious Old Fashion which he thought paired best with Van Camp’s steak. As it turned out, the two are old friends and that made for an even more exciting program.   Continue reading

If you missed craveRADIO this Sunday we have the replay below for our readers and listeners. This week we invited chefs Richard Chamberlain (Chamberlain’s Steak and Chop House and Chamberlain’s Fish Market Grill) and Jim “Sevy” Severson (Sevy’s). The pair of chefs are long-time friends and it seemed only natural to have them on in tandem.

Chamberlain discussed some of his tips for the upcoming Kaboom Town, his favorite dishes at his restaurants, and his love for hunting and fishing. Sevy discussed his start in the restaurant business working at McDonalds that lead to attending the Culinary Institute of America.        Continue reading

We have been following Uno Immanivong since we met her last Fall when she was competing in the Anthony Bourdain television program The Taste. We since learned she would be opening her restaurant Chino Chinatown in Trinity Groves   most likely in October. Uno has this vibrant and warm personality that is at once charming and inviting.

This summer her fans will have a chance to get to know her much better as she leads an excursion to the Mayan Riveria where they will enjoy hands on cooking classes, a greenhouse tour, cocktail and cooking demos, a pop-up beach dinner and much more.      Continue reading

Last weekend we were invited to stop in and enjoy the festivities at 3015 in Trinity Groves where chef Uno Immanivong and her cocktailing biz partner Adrian Verdin hosted an evening that previewed and highlighted the menu from Chino Chinatown, their Asian-Latin fusion restaurant that should be rolling out in August 2013.

Guests were delighted by the marvelous service, and colorful and flavor-packed dishes prepared by Uno and her pop-up staff. The beautiful “pho”zole was single handedly an enormous hit, and how could she miss with her bone marrow broth, braised oxtail and hominy for a true fusion win. The flavors meld together so wonderfully.  Continue reading
