Jim White and Tom Fleming

Jim White and Chef Tom Fleming

Tom Fleming is our guest this week on “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKAL. Tom agrees with Auguste Escoffier’s judgment that the egg is the most difficult food to cook correctly.  As a classically trained chef, Fleming is serious not only about the egg, but every other ingredient (mostly made from scratch) he serves for breakfast and lunch at his Crossroads Diner.  It’s the quintessential family operation that he and wife Karen run with a little help from their daughters (when they’re not in school).  It’s their “Plan B”, as Tom calls it, in case his bright young ladies ever need a fallback career opportunity.  Someone’s been cooking (seriously if not professionally) in Tom’s family for almost a century.  Find out how Tom was introduced to the craft, how he faced his personal crossroads, and his views on how the Dallas-Fort Worth dining scene has changed since he arrived here 20 years ago from Chicago, fresh off a James Beard “Best New Restaurant” win.  It’s the podcast devoted to the people who make the eats and drinks you love.  Catch all of our episodes on iTunes and at VOKALnow.com.

 

And, remember:  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner, tell ’em RESERVATIONS!
