Bonus Fun Stuff: Savor Dallas Garden Party at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.
Jermaine Brown of Julia Pearl Southern Cuisine and Oliver Sitrin of The Blind Butcher are facing off Wednesday evening, each one expected to make something great. Contest moderator and celebrity chef Kent Rathbun offers a bit of advice to the warriors: “Stay focused on the food, even though you’re in front of hundreds of people.”
And let’s just say there will be plenty to experience while the chefs work out their issues on cutting boards. There’s a list a mile long of the talented and generous vendors at the event, all offering food samples to attendees:
