Food News and Some Booze (5/20/13)

Nancy already talked about Private | Social changing to its new Texas food menu, but now you get to taste it. For free. Everyone is invited to a complimentary event to sample the new menu and cocktails on Tuesday, May 21 and Wednesday, May 22, from 5 to 8 p.m. (On the menu: burly beef brisket, fried green tomato caprese, duck fat fried duck, ranch-style steaks, homemade cornbread and the delicious five-cheese mac ‘n’ cheese.)

I can’t stop thinking about fried chicken. Last week, I ate at Rudy’s Chicken. Over the weekend, I met a tiny woman with a serious love for this greasy meat. Now I’m ogling a Southern Living recipe for fried chicken on the New York Times. Look!

Trinity Groves has an Indian cooking class tonight at 6 p.m. It’s $79 and you get to learn from Minal Jhaveri how to make mango lassi, samosa puffs, channa masala, saag paneer, vegetable saffron pulav, cucumber raita, and shrikhand. Call 214-939-3015 to register.
