For our loyal customers, Chef Kyla (myself) and Family (Original owners that started and built Thairrific 10 years ago) would like to thank you for coming to Thairrific.
However, due to changes internally.
My Family, Wonderful Wait Staff, and my loyal Cooks will no longer be present at Cedars Springs.
Phomsavanh was running the family-owned business until longtime regular customer Daniel Sikora bought the restaurant with his company, Crucial Pickles LLC, in December 2010. Sikora played the role of an investor and handled the marketing side, while Phomsavanh managed and cooked. All was going well until six months after Thairrific moved to its current Cedar Springs location. On May 2, (what Phomsavanh thought would be) a negotiations meeting turned into a private ousting.

Private|Social is spicing things up this summer with a couple of events you guys might find interesting. Execuchef T. Derry is teaching some mixology classes along with Rocco Milano. She’s also inviting some celebrity chefs like Kevin Sbraga, Angelo Sosa, and Carla Hall from her good ‘ole days as a Top Chef contestant to co-host special dinners.
The dinners are $125 per person for 4-5 courses. Cooking classes are $80, mixology classes are $25, but if you pair the cooking with mixology class together, you can save five bucks and only pay $100. Good deal.
Jump because you like press releases as much as I do. /s/
We’re starting a new blog series to help you farmers market shoppers know exactly when and where to get the freshest produce around town. Erin Ahlfinger, a former D Custom intern, is now officially our slave, er, I mean.. contributor. She’s probably the nicest person you’ll ever meet, and she also happens to be a farmers market fanatic. Expect to see her market report every Thursday morning from now on. Here’s what she has to say about this weekend:
Celebration Farmers Market is one of the newer markets around town, but they’re off to a great start. Their farmers offer red and green tomatoes for those who like to fry the green ones. Mozzarella Company will be selling a few of their cheeses made by hand right here in Deep Ellum. For the first time this week, Circle L Barbecue Sauce will be there to take care of all your Memorial Day grilling needs.

Coppell Farmers Market: Berries are in this week and their season is short. Get ‘em while they’re plump and juicy (I like to freeze a few extra pints and throw them into smoothies later). The wide variety of produce includes several types of radishes, tart green plums, and fresh herbs. Some produce is organic, some is conventional. The farmers are always happy to differentiate. Tickets to the Farm to Table Dinner are now on sale at the main tent.

Last month, we discussed the future of food writing and contributing to print pubs in general. In general we summarized:
Publications are shrinking. There are fewer jobs in the publishing business, not just food writing. We hear from people everyday looking for work as editors, art designers, and free lancers. Interns taking journalism classes still spend time in our offices, but instead of gathering “clips” from the magazine, they turn in blog posts for college credit.
I bring the subject up again because I received a disturbing email geared towards the “promotion” of restaurants on blogs. Jump for it.25 Comments »
Attention all sugar junkies, prepare yourselves for Dallas’ biggest bake sale of the year, Cupcake Camp Dallas is back and bigger than ever. This year’s event will see over 25 professional bakeries and 19 amateurs all donating more than 7,500 cupcakes for charity. The event benefits the LEAP foundation, a non-profit organization composed of volunteer physicians and support staff who provide free surgical care to children and adults with deformities.
This year’s event is being held on June 2nd at St. Mark’s School of Texas (10600 Preston Rd, Dallas) from 1-4 PM. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door.
Many well-known Dallas bakeries, including Society Bakery, Dimples, Trailercakes, and Tart Bakery will be in attendance, but this is also a wonderful opportunity to taste of the talents of many excellent bakers from all around the Dallas area that you may be less familiar with. A full list of bakers can be seen here.
Last year’s event was such a huge success, the camp is expecting to double its attendance this year. We’ll have a full report of the camp for you here at SideDish after the event, but trust me, this is one eat-a-thon you will not want to simply admire through the glowing pixels of your computer monitor.3 Comments »
Anyone familiar with CVNE knows the name stands for Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España. Those who don’t are confused as to how to pronounce the famous Rioja which has belonged to direct descendants of Real de Asua family since 1879.
This week, North American Sales Director and family member by marriage, Sam Ferraro, was The Oceanaire Seafood Room in Dallas to talk about the wine. The name has been altered to read Cune on the page. The winery, in the spirit of rather being rich than dead, embraced it (you can do that if your product overtakes the historical memories). Ferraro has increased US sales by over 700% in his first year on the job: From 2,000 cases in 2010 to 15,000 cases in 2011 (still relative peanuts in the largest wine market in the world) but he sees this as only his first step. Ferraro told us the story of how he entered the wine market. It’s a classic. Continue reading "Chalk Talk: Checking Out the Wine List at Oceanaire Seafood Room and Notes From a Tasting of CVNE Wines"
Patios and plunge pools are on the agenda for many this weekend, and what goes better with a long weekend in the sunshine than an incredibly refreshing cocktail. Here are a few to consider sipping this holiday weekend, they are guaranteed to cool you off on what is sure to be a hot Memorial Day. A few selections were sent for editorial consideration.
I have become a rum drinker, sipping Brugal Extra Viejo and either soda or diet ginger ale with a squeeze of lime instead of my previous go to of vodka and soda. The Golden Mojito with Brugal Anejo takes this to the next level with fresh mint and a bit of simple syrup.
50 ml Brugal Anejo Rum
15 ml sugar syrup (equal parts sugar and water, heated until the sugar dissolves)
2 lime wedges
a few mint leaves
Directions – Add the mint and lime to a shaker and muddle together. Add the rum, sugar syrup and ice and shake until very cold. Strain into an ice filled highball glass. Top with ginger ale and garnish with extra mint leaves. Continue reading "What To Drink Now: Memorial Day Refreshers"
