Rhone on the Range

What could be better than lunch with Jacques Pépin, Dinner with Stephan Pyles and “Cowboys, Cuisine and Cabernet”? Sounds like a job for the 7th Annual Buffalo Gap Wine and Food Summit April 15-17, in beautiful Buffalo Gap, Texas right outside Abilene.

The event was founded by Cowboy Chef Tom Perini (former Savor Dallas “Lone Star Award” Winner) the late Fess Parker of Fess Parker Winery & Vineyards, and Dr. Richard Becker of Becker Vineyards as a non-profit organization to cultivate the appreciation of fine wine and food through education and industry discussion.

It’s a fun event.  Imagine great food and wine, outside under the live oaks and a big ol’ starry West Texas night sky as the backdrop, and you’ve got the picture of the setting for Buffalo Gap Wine and Food Summit, hosted on the ground of Perini

Jacques Pépin

Ranch Steakhouse.

Very special guest Celebrity Chef Jacques Pepin will host a special cooking demonstration. Looks like the popular Stephan Pyles dinner is sold out, but you never know Lisa Perini might make more room for you. Ol’ Tom justs need to bust out a few fence posts and add another table or two. Visit the website for complete details on the event.  Please call for tickets: 1-800-367-1721 or 325-572-3339. Monday-Friday 8:30am – 5:00pm
