Coming home, staying home

Jim and RichardRichard Chamberlain is such a Dallas-Fort Worth mainstay, you may not know that as a young, rising star chef he could have gone just about anywhere he wanted.  The popular chef and restaurateur is our guest on this week’s “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKALnow.com.  Richard earned his stripes with some big time chef positions in Bel Air and Aspen.  Who knows where that auspicious beginning might have taken him?  We’re lucky that he and his wife Lisa wanted to come home to Texas.  We’ll let Richard fill-in the highlights of his illustrious career, including his choice to skip FFA (Future Farmers of America) in high school to be in FHA (Future Homemakers of America), so he could meet girls.  Not sure how many dates he got, but the classes did get him interested in cooking.  Chef Chamberlain also gives us a demonstration of a one-pan gourmet meal with his indespensible cast iron skillet in our “KISS Cooking” segment (keep it simple and straightforward).  Dotty Griffith returns as our “Guest Gourmet” giving you more, great neighborhood restaurant finds.  Join us for the digital TV program, and podcast, that introduces you to the men and women who create the flavors you love.  Catch all of our episodes on VOKAL, YouTube, Vimeo, or iTunes.  And, remember.  If anybody asks  you what you’re making for dinner….tell ’em, reservations!

Galloping “Guest Gourmet”

Dotty Griffith“A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust, and a hearty bon appétit! Wining and Dining with Jim White rides again!”   And, Dotty Griffith is our special “Guest Gourmet” throughout June on the all new “digital TV” video on demand show from the VOKALnow.com studios.  Dotty’s quite the equestrian anyway, and an amazingly talented food expert, so my fractured spin on the classic “Lone Ranger” opening is an appropriate metaphor for our show’s sidekick.   Like Jay Silverheels’s “Tonto”, the trusted companion for Clayton Moore’s “Masked Man”, our “Guest Gourmet” adds insights about hot new restaurants, great wine finds, travel tips, and generally adds to the flavor of our “news you can use about wining and dining” theme.  And, serves up something interesting in case my mind wanders.  Each week we’ll introduce you to great chefs, winemakers, and culinary stars.  A new “Guest Gourmet” joins us each month.  On our first video/radio show, Dotty is both guest star and Guest Gourmet.  She gives us the aforementioned tips and shares super fun facts from her latest cookbook, The Ultimate Tortilla Press Cookbook.  Vicki Briley-White, Savor Dallas co-founder, also brings you some fascinating “wine trends” on this episode, as part of her ongoing contributions, “Savor the Flavor” and “Vicki Uncorked”.  Join us for the program devoted to introducing you to the people who make the eats and drinks you love.  Watch the shows on YouTube. You can also catch our podcast on iTunes, and watch or listen to all of our shows on VOKAL Media.  And, Remember, if anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner…Tell ’em reservations!

All around Texas woman

Dotty GriffithSpend some time with Dotty Griffith on this week’s episode of “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKAL.  Dotty has worn many hats through the years:  award winning journalist for The Dallas Morning News, cookbook author, and educator.   She’s likely to don a cowboy hat, too, especially when she’s helping charitable causes like EQuest.  She considers herself an “international citizen of the food world firmly rooted in Texas”.  We get a chance to talk to her about her new cookbook (her ninth) coming this fall–The Ultimate Tortilla Press Cookbook, Tortilla Press Bookher days as Food Editor and Restaurant Critic in Dallas, and her new endeavor as an adjunct professor at the University of North Texas teaching a course she designed on culinary journalism.  Welcome to the podcast devoted to introducing you to the women and men who conjure up the flavors you love.  Catch all our episodes on VOKAL and on iTunes.  And, remember:  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner, tell ’em reservations!
