Making Dallas Even Better

Tom Spicer’s FM 1410 Inventory Update

Tom Spicer.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year to be a hungry Dallasite. All of our local food markets are filling with fresh, ripe produce and we have bountiful months ahead. It’s also wonderful to have a quirky forager like Tom Spicer in our city. His dedication to sourcing ingredients borders on insane and I mean that in a good way. Anywhoo, here is Spiceman’s latest e-mail:
