Why did the chicken cross the road?

Omar Flores and Jim WhiteTo get to Whistle Britches of course!  Chef Omar Flores guest stars on “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKAL.  This week’s episode traces the young chef’s career from his family’s restaurants in El Paso and Chicago, to his training at the Culinary Institute, onto those heady days at 5 Star Abacus, and his rapid ascension as a restaurateur with Driftwood and Casa Rubia.  He’s working on expanding his chicken empire with new locations of Whistle Britches on the way (and he explains what Whistle Britches means in case you don’t know).  His family will also be expanding soon, too.  Check it out as Omar slows his 24×7 break neck pace for a while to visit with us on the podcast devoted to bringing you the stories about the people who create the eats and drinks you love.  Catch all our shows on iTunes and on VOKALnow.com.  Bon appétit. Remember:  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner…tell ’em RESERVATIONS!

redWineWhether you say “sante” or “cheers”; “Bon appetit” or “enjoy the food”, food and wine celebrations abound in Texas this weekend and next.

How about a road trip to enjoy the Galveston Island Food and Wine Festival kicking off Thursday?  Chef Robert Irvine from The Food Network headlines.

If you love chocolate, head to Grapevine Friday and Saturday for Chocolate Fest featuring “An Evening of Chocolate and Wine” and “A day of Chocolate and Art” at the Grapevine Convention Center.

Then, make plans next weekend to attend the Austin Food and Wine Festival.  Local headliners include Chefs Omar Flores from Casa Rubia, Julian Barsotti from Nonna, and Kent Rathbun from Abacus.
