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

There is nothing like a Dame!

Susan Auler, Fall Creek Winery

Rodgers and Hammerstein said it in song, and the Dallas Chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier says it with great food and wine!  Their 22nd “Raiser Grazer” is coming up Sunday March 6th from 5 until 8 p.m., at Cityplace Conference Center in Dallas, 2711 North Haskell.

This year’s Grazer, “Dames in the City”, is a Who’s Who of women who have redefined a new era in wine and culinary arts. The evening will feature luminaries of the wine industry and 20 well-known women chefs and culinary professionals offering samplings of food. In addition to the cork pull, a silent auction of culinary classes, private dinners, fine wines and more will be held. Guests will also enjoy specialty cocktail bars and ‘street performers’ at the event.  The group has raised more than $1 million for deserving women. Funds raised will benefit the Dallas Chapter’s established scholarship programs and endowments at five colleges and universities in Texas for women in the food, wine and hospitality industries.  Tickets to the Les Dames Raiser Grazer are available online for $50 prior to the event, and $60 at the door. The website address is www.LDEDallas.org.

And speaking of “Who’s Who”.  Read on to see all the great participants.  Thanks, ladies!
