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/
Here’s a request you don’t see everyday. Hear her plea:

Nancy, I have a constant craving for garlic rolls. I’m am six months pregnant and I think about garlic bread all of the time. I would like to know your favorite places but what I am really looking for is a recipe so I can make my own. Neither my husband or I are very good at cooking but how hard can garlic bread be if we don’t make the bread. Maybe you’re readers can help.
[Editor's Note: My bad. I changed the title of this blog post to reflect my newfound attitude. Nancy wants to add her take: "This is actually a great showing for Dallas. Flavor Hook is the name of Nick Badovinus' company which operates four restaurants in Dallas. He is very low key and has never used a publicist or PR agency, and it is a big deal that he was nominated. Same for Bruno."]
We’re proud that Texas has a strong showing in this year’s semifinals, but we’re not at all surprised by the results. Stephan Pyles is competing in the “Outstanding Chef” category, while Nick Badovinius of Flavor Hook is rockin’ “Outstanding Restauranteur.” The Best Chefs, SW could possibly be Dallas hotshots Teiichi Sakurai or Bruno Davaillon, depending on where those James Beardists like to get their seafood.
I added the tallies, and it’s a bit disappointing that we’re behind Houston, that sprawling mess of a city. See? Houston: 6, Dallas: 5, Austin: 3, Irving: 1
The final nominations will be announced on March 19. Cross your fingers, Dallas.11 Comments »
My plea: I can’t write it, sing it, dance it, or say any better than Neil Sedaka. You can help save Nana by writing your stories about your experiences at Nana. Put on your go-go boots and come-a come-a, down dooby do down, down to the comments.
