‘Tis the season for long-table dinners. (Remember the Outstanding in the Field and Chefs for Farmers events from a couple weeks ago?) It would appear that not only is the the long table dinner trend not showing signs of burning out but it’s actually picking up steam and variations as evidenced by this latest event to cross our desks: The Longest Chef’s Table in Dallas, Nov. 11 at 6 pm at The Village on the Green. The event promises cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a six-course dinner, wine pairings, a silent auction, and serenade by Booker T. Washington vocal students. This dinner under the stars, concocted by 12 of North Texas’ premier chefs — including but not limited to Chef Amado Mora (Maximo Mexican Cocina), Chef Tim Byers (Smoke), Chef Tiffany Derry (Go Fish Ocean Club), Chef Tamesha Warren (Top Chef: DC and Washington, D.C.’s The Oval Room), and Chef Brad Albers (Eddie V’s) — will run you a mere $125 and will benefit a mighty good cause (you know…the kids). And while this may be “the longest” event of its kind, space remains limited, so visit The Village on the Green’s website to claim your seat.
As for the long-table trend, what’s next? Highest? Lowest? Widest? Lengthiest? We’ll let you know as soon as we get the word.
