Okay, Dallas. Here’s your time to rise and shine. There’s a show on Bravo I’ve never seen called “Around the World in 80 Plates” hosted by Cat Cora and Curtis Stone which follows 12 chefs globetrotting from continent to the other. This show inspired Chase Sapphire to partner with the Tasting Table for a charity they are dubbing the 8 Great Plates competition. Ten different cities were selected for this charity, and Dallas is one of them, which means Dallas foodies (that’s where you come in) can vote for their favorite international dish among eight local contenders that serve cuisines that’ve been featured on “Around the World in 80 Plates.”
Why am I typing all these details out and making you read them? For every vote, Chase Sapphire is giving $1 to Feeding America, and Feeding America will then give up to $10,000 to the North Texas Food Bank. Your votes will be providing meals for your hungry neighbors in Dallas.
It’s quite easy. I’ll even break it up into three simple steps.
Step 1) Choose your favorite from these 8 restaurants and their cuisines:
Argentinian – Empanadas at Argentina Bakery
Cantonese – Dim Sum at Hong Kong Royal
Italian – Steak Florentine at La Fiorentina
Moroccan – Beef Tenderloin Tagine at Medina Oven+Bar
Thai – Shrimp Red Curry at Royal Thai
Spanish – Paella at Si Tapas Restaurant Bar
English – Fish and Chips at The Londoner Pub
French – French Onion Soup at Toulouse Café and Bar
Step 2) Go here to vote every day from now until July 31.
Step 3) Feel good about yourself for helping the North Texas Food Bank and treat yourself to a milkshake.
