Just about the only things I know about Honduras is that that the scuba diving is world class and it is one of the few countries in the world to be invaded by a neighboring country after a soccer game. The cuisine remained a cipher. I was excited, therefore, when, driving to work one morning, I found myself behind a truck painted with “Catrachito – 100% Comida Hondureña.” Even I knew that that didn’t refer to a comedy club, so I noted the details and made a mental plan to check it out. This is not the only Honduran restaurant in the DFW area, but this is an outsider’s review, so if you know Honduran cuisine (or were involved in the soccer war) please chime in.

On Tuesday, February 7, 2012, the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association will be hosting its annual TX ProStart Regional Competition for over 25 high school teams from our area that utilize our ProStart curriculum. What is ProStart? I’m glad you asked. ProStart is a two-year program that provides training and certification in both culinary and management. Over 30 teams of high school students will compete in culinary and management battles. The top 3 winners will go on to State competition, and the State winner will go to the Nationals in Baltimore. The National winner will get a free roundtrip to Saturn. (Just wanted to see if you were still with me.)
The GDRA needs judges! So, if you are a chef, a sous chef, a kitchen worker, a recipe developer, a kitchen manager, or an expert in your restaurant, contact Contact Tracey Evers, firstname.lastname@example.org or our assistant director Candice Sullinger , email@example.com.
I have always had a great affinity for Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley. I had visited the Oregon region probably 3 times before ever stepping foot in the prestigious Napa Valley, and have found that the charm and personality of the then still small and developing region has lasted through the years. I am headed back to Willamette this weekend for an annual holiday trip with friends, showing them why I love Oregon Pinot Noir so much, but before I go I wanted to give a few tips on some great California Pinot Noir options.
Let’s taste them. Continue reading "What To Drink Now: California Pinot Noir"2 Comments »
