So I’m reading through a zillion press releases and I come across an older one from the new restaurant in Renaissance Hotel, the building near the Dallas Market Center that, to me, resembles an aerosol air freshner. It’s swanky looking place, and its “farm to fire” cuisine may be the best farm to fire cuisine ever trucked from a farm to a fire, the name of the place does not make me hungry.
I know, now, it’s Spanish for grill but still, come on. Really? Anybody else unhappy with the name of a restaurant?29 Comments »
Well, here’s a good one for you. A loyal Disher who is preggers has a healthy hankering for creamed corn. Hear her roar.
I am six months pregnant and craving creamed corn. I am tired of making it. Can you suggest a restaurant where I could call and get them to make a big batch for me? Thanks.
I told her Chamberlain’s Steak and Chophouse does a fine version. Anybody else?33 Comments »

This summer marks the 18th year for this wonderful series of cooking classes presented by AIWF and the DFM. They take place on Saturday mornings at the reasonable hour of 11:30AM and end at 1:00PM. It’s a great way to get to know local chefs and another reason to buy from our regional farmers. The schedule and all-you-need-to-know info is below.2 Comments »
