A Sneak Peek at Chipotle’s Cultivate Festival

It’s obvious this city has a place in its heart for three things in particular: food, local artisans and celebrating the two together. With at least two festivals a week there’s always a chance to get involved, learn a thing or two, meet the faces behind our favorite products, shuffle our feet to some tunes, party and most importantly, binge eat for three days straight. Well, this year there’s a new festival in town and it’s a Chipotle addict’s heaven. On Saturday, October 18 at Lake Carolyn in Irving from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Chipotle will host its Cultivate Festival. Here are some things you should know before you go.

The Dairy Free Diaries: Chocolate Chip Ice Cream with Caramel Syrup

It seems like everyone is becoming diary-free, gluten-free, and everything else that sounds remotely healthy. Is it a trend? Will it fade? Who knows. I, for one, have recently become lactose-intolerant. But before I mourned my dairy days, I decided to adjust old, familiar recipes to match my needs. Slowly, I’ve succumbed to my body’s peer pressure and have made a few dairy and gluten-free recipes lately.
I wanted to start off this series with the most original flavor: chocolate chip. (I had to add a twist, though. Cue the vegan caramel syrup.)
