Each week Bolsa Mercado invites a guest chef prepare their to-go dinners for two which are available for purchase starting Thursday afternoons until they are sold out each week. Proceeds from the sales of the dinners will benefit Café Momentum, and each chef has been asked to incorporate produce grown in the garden of the Dallas County Youth Village within their menus. Today Jason “Don’t Call Me Harry Connick, Jr.” Maddy, execuchef of Oak, is in the kitchen. His menu and more info on Cafe Momentum below.

These dinners for two, prepared by a selection of our favorite Dallas chefs, will be available for purchase starting Thursday afternoons until they are sold out each week. Each chef will prepare his/her own menu which is announced the Monday prior. Quantities are limited and prices will vary from $20-$30.
Proceeds from the sales of the dinners will benefit Café Momentum, and each chef has been asked to incorporate produce grown in the garden of the Dallas County Youth Village within their menus.
Vegetables are grown by the young men participating in the gardening program at the Dallas Country Youth Village, a residential facility for adjudicated young men between the ages of 10 and 17 who have been found by the court to be in need of supervision. Youth Village Resources of Dallas is a non-profit organization that supports many programs, including the gardening program. Café Momentum started as a program of the Youth Village Resources of Dallas, and recently separated, forming it’s own non-profit. Both organizations continue to work hand-in-hand with Café Momentum, being supporters of both the gardening and culinary programs at the Youth Village.
