Curator Jim White created an event that had attendees longing for the large-scale Spring Savor Dallas event scheduled for March 20 – 23, 2014.
The mouth-watering samples:
Louisiana blue point crab cakes with Remoulade and hot sauce from Amberjack’s Fish Market Grill were a huge hit.
LUCK (Local Urban Craft Kitchen) served roasted jerk chicken drumettes with a habanero pineapple glaze.
Chino served a Cochinita Pibil steamed bun with Sriracha ketchup in a little signature to go wrapper.
3015 Trinity Groves showed how simply one can serve elegant cuisine for the masses by offering steamed mussels in a tarragon broth.
St. Rocco’s New York Italian served a three-cheese crepe manicotti with house marinara and a half meatball.
Spicy ponzu oyster shooters from Resto Gastro Bistro were an interesting, colorful offering.
Haute Sweet Patisserie offered a strawberry rhubarb chocolate mignon that was simply “ooo, la, la.”
The sample that had me do a “happy” dance (literally, I waved my arms) was the Glenfiddich single-malt, Scotch whisky-filled truffle from Kate Weiser Chocolates. This is something that a true Glenfiddich or Scotch whisky fan would love. It is pure heaven in a bite.
Siegel’s provided wines from Argentina, California, Chile, France, Italy, Oregon, Spain and Washington. My newest favorite is a robust red appropriately named “Writer’s Block.”
Texas wines Becker Vineyards and Fall Creek Winery were also offered.
Beer lovers enjoyed samples from Dallas’ Four Corners Brewery and Belgium’s Stella Artois in their signature commemorative glass.
With 180 days until the 2014 Savor Dallas event, this was a very sweet tease.
