Marcus Paslay and Jim White

Chef Marcus Paslay and Jim White

Chef Marcus Paslay is spinning plates, so to speak. He operates two successful Fort Worth restaurants, Clay Pigeon and Piattello Italian Kitchen (both affectionately named for the flying targets he loves to shoot), and manages to balance his family’s interest with the growing business.  We sat down with the affable chefpreneur for this week’s episode of “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKAL.  “Good food, well prepared feeds my soul”, says Marcus, who started his career in the restaurant industry as a “working tourist”.  “Tune in” to hear about his journeys, and his sage advice for aspiring chefs and restaurateurs.  Welcome to the podcast devoted to introducing you to the likes, loves and life of the men and women behind the eats and drinks you love.  You can subscribe to our podcasts on iTunes.  Please remember:  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner, tell ’em reservations!

Singin’ a sweet savory song

Jim White and Dean FearingWorld famous chef Dean Fearing is one of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.  His heralded eponymous restaurant in The Ritz-Carlton Hotel is sublime, and doing great business.  He continues to explore and refine his elevated American cuisine.  But, if he had ventured down the road that beckoned in his youth, you might never have been greeted by him at Fearing’s or The Mansion on Turtle Creek.  Or, any other restaurant for that matter. What?!?  No Lobster Tacos?  No Tortilla Soup? No Antelope on Coriander/Smoked Pepita Pesto?  Find out what we’re talking about as Dean joins us on today’s episode of “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKAL.  It’s the podcast devoted to bringing you life stories behind the men and women who create the flavors you love.  Catch all our conversations with top chefs and winemakers on VOKALnow.com and on iTunes.  And, remember.  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner….tell ’em, reservations!

Restaurateur Shannon Wynne has opened a new place serving food that’s good for you, and it also tastes good.  But don’t worry if healthy indredients aren’t a big deal to you.  On today’s episode of “Wining and Dining with Jim White”, we’ll introduce you to the serial entrepreneur and his accomplished young chef Suki Otsuki at Mudhen Meat and Greens in the Dallas Farmers Market.  Shannon, his partners Keith Schlabs and Larry Richardson, and Chef Suki are helping the venerable Farmers Market become a foodie destination.  We’ll get all the background behind the menu, and find out just what a “mudhen” is.  And, If you’ve been a fan of Shannon’s through the years (like we have), you’ll get a kick out of hearing how he came to name his most famous concept “8-0” (instead of “The 80’s”).  Relive those thrilling daze of yesteryear and find out where both our guests like to dine out  on “Episode 8” of the podcast devoted to introducing you to the greatest chefs, winemakers, and restaurateurs in the world.  Never miss a program when you subscribe to “Wining and Dining with Jim White” at iTunes.  We should point out that no water fowl were harmed in the making of this program (or at Mudhen Meat and Greens).

If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner.  Tell ’em reservations!

Tre Wilcox, Vicki Briley-White and Jim White

This week on the podcast, we bring you a chef who is driven with a new focus.  From Abacus to “Top Chef” and other TV appearances, Tre Wilcox has become a fan favorite.  And, he’s busy.  In addition to partnering on a new restaurant, Julia Pearl Southern Cuisine, Tre has opened his dream operation, Tre Cooking Concepts.  Fancy cooking with the chef for a night?  Maybe hosting a glam dinner party with Tre providing the “ChefTainment”?  Or, have you ever longed to run your own restaurant? (For a night; believe me, you’ll get over it).  Those are just some of the ways Tre envisions his new establishment serving your wining and dining needs.

Hear all of our episodes of “Wining and Dining with Jim White” by going to the iTunes Store.  Give us a rating if you please.  We’d also love to hear from you if there’s  a favorite chef or winemaker you’d like for us to feature on the show.

And, if anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner, tell them reservations!

The Most Delicious Food and Wine Festival in Texas Celebrates its 10th “Vintage”

March 20-22.

DSC_0219_4

10 years of wining and dining fun seems like the blink of an eye!  Thanks for making the party so much fun through the years.  We really appreciate your support.

We are pleased that our delicious tastings are back in downtown Dallas on March 21 and 22.

Friday’s Arts District Wine Stroll returns to the beautiful settings of the Nasher Sculpture Center and the Meyerson Symphony Center.  And, what a treat to add the Plaza of the Cathedral at the Arts District to our tasting tour.  The Wine Stroll has sold out the last two years.  So, please get your tickets fast and join us.

2012-03-30 - Savor Dallas Arts District Stroll 177

Saturday is a food and wine lover’s paradise. Thanks to Bob’s Steak and Chop House in the Omni Hotel Dallas for hosting our wine  and mixology seminars starting at 11 a.m.

Just across the Skybridge from the Omni, Savor Dallas celebrates wine, food, spirits, craft beer, and the arts with two magnificent tastings at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.  

At 5 p.m., “The Reserve Tasting”, featuring über premium wines and Champagnes takes place in Ballroom D (on the 3rd level of the convention Center).

AT 6:30, optional Fast Track Early Entry to the International Grand Tasting is just a few steps away in some very cool “pre function space”, in exhibit jargon, otherwise known as LOBBY E & F.  The area is spacious and inviting, with floor to ceiling views of Big D.  (Regular admission time to the Grand Tasting is 7 p.m.)

Just wait til you see some of the surprises we have in store for you to make our big 10th anniversary party more fun for you.

Dozens of great chefs will be there.  And of course, we’ll have hundreds of premium wines, spirits and beers for you to try (remember it’s a tasting! Please drink responsibly.)

Come see us for some big fun and big flavor in Big D at Savor Dallas.  And, bring your friends!  GET TICKETS HERE.

Cheers,

Jim White and Vicki Briley-White
