Funny, you don’t look a day over 99!

Happy 100th birthday to White Rock Lake.

Thanks to Brian C. Luscher and all the great chefs who put together one fantastic “Chef’s Picnic” to help celebrate White Rock Lake’s 100th birthday.  The big party culminated with tons of activities on Sunday June 26th.  None more savory than the picnic held at The Bath House Cultural Center.  It was a picnic in June so one would expect heat.  How hot was it, you ask?  Well, let’s just it could have been named the “Hotternhell Picnic” and it wouldn’t have been an understatement.  Oh, I know you can’t jump in the water for fear you’ll scrape your shin, or contract some dreadful bacterial condition, but oh I wanted to splash in the water anyway.  Well, thank goodness there was shade, and plenty of cool beverages.  The food was amazing and very local!  Thanks to Brian C. Luscher of The Grape, Janice Provost from Parigi, Marc Cassel from Peavy Road (coming soon), Graham Dodds from Bolsa, Jeff Harris of Redfork, Nathan Tate and Randall Copeland from Restaurant AvaDiane and Justin Fourton from Pecan Lodge, and personal chef Holly Dorethy.  The tickets benefited the American Red Cross and White Rock Lake.  See some photo highlights here.  Hope you made it out this weekend.  It’s a long time until the bi-Centennial!  Cheers! Or, I guess I should say, splash!

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!
