Last week there were several pre-release screenings of Forks Over Knives, the newest foodumentary to create a stir. Like Inconvenient Truth and Food Inc., these “movies” make you think about what happens to food before you put in your mouth. I have not seen it, but our arts editor, Peter Simek, slices and dices the film over on FrontRow. The movie is now showing at the Landmark Magnolia Theater. Tell me where you had dinner after you’ve seen the movie.
National Craft Beer Week kicks off today. Sarah has listed several celebratory events taking place all over town. I will use this day as an opportunity to run a video I shot two years ago when I visited Duvel Moortgat, just outside of Brussels. Duvel rep Suzanne Van Den Broeck illustrates how to pour the perfect beer. Who’s thirsty.?1 Comment »
Taco Cabana’s smoked brisket tacos are a seasonal item and now ’tis the season. “Our brisket tacos were overwhelmingly popular last year, and we’re delighted to bring brisket back,” said Todd Coerver, chief marketing officer at Taco Cabana. “If guest feedback remains positive, we are considering adding our brisket offering to the permanent menu. Fans need to be sure and visit us on Facebook to tell us how much they love our brisket tacos if they would like to see us offer them year-round.”
They sent me a coupon so I went and took some pictures of the plate which has two brisket tacos, rice, beans, and two flour tortillas. I recommend them with the ranch or fuego salas from the salsa bar. They are also available as a two brisket taco combo meal with chips, queso or guacamole and a 20-oz drink. Both dishes are $5.99. They tacos are also available as breakfast brisket and egg tacos.

Last week Hayley Hamilton reported a memorable tasting of Moët & Chandon wines in Dallas. I attended the same event and had the chance to interview Moët & Chandon winemaker, Marc Brevot.
Teresa Gubbins has been all over this story like hot on fries (where did I just read that?). She reported Friday that the former owners of foodie favorite La Palapa Veracruzana that closed nearly two years ago, Raul and Olga Reyes, have been given a second chance to showcase their talents at Mesa. Their savior? No, not Carl Van Fleet of In-N-Out. The Reyes’, according to Gubbins, were saved by “by a support group that includes Chris Zielke, co-owner of Smoke and Bolsa, as well as Nick Zukin, the Portland blogger and restaurateur who is co-owner of Kenny & Zuke’s Delicatessen. Bolsa bartender Eddie “Lucky” Campbell consulted on the cocktail menu, which includes a luscious house-made horchata — spiked, of course.” Opening day is set for Friday, May 20. 118-A West Jefferson Blvd.1 Comment »
Late last week I attended was a pairing of Spanish food and wine at Central Market’s Pasaporte Espana. One of the stars of the show was Miguel Torres of Torres Wines. The winery founded by the Torres family in 1870 is one of the most respected and influential wine makers in Spain. After class, I was fortunate to catch a few words with him.
