Meaningful momentum

Jim White and Chad Houser

Chad Houser found his passion project when he was the chef at Parigi in Dallas.  With support from his then partner, Janice Provost, and tons of hard work and a heaping helping of community support, Chad developed a restaurant that has become a model for assisting juvenile offenders.  Cafe Momentum trains and mentors these young people upon their release from the system.   Cafe Momentum is a fine dining 501C3,  that puts “his kids”, as Chad says,  into every conceivable working role in an upscale restaurant and gets them on track for a better life ahead.  Oh, by the way, the food and service are great too.  Get the Cafe Momentum story from Chef Houser and find out what’s ahead for the celebrated program on this week’s edition of “Wining and Dining with Jim White”.  Chad also shows you how to make a fabulous side dish for your Super Bowl party:  pickled jalapeños.  You’ll love ’em!  Thanks for joining us on the program devoted to introducing you to the people who make the eats and drinks you love.  You can watch or listen to all of our shows on VOKALnow.com, YouTube, Vimeo, or iTunes.  And, remember.  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner, tell ’em reservations!

Mom and pop shop

Jim White welcomes Janice Provost and Bud Kennedy

Parigi is the Italian word for Paris.  It’s also a longtime foodie favorite restaurant in Dallas operated by Chef Janice Provost (who just happens to love all things French,and especially Paris).  Janice is our guest on this week’s “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKALnow.com.  Find out how she put herself in a position to succeed with the restaurant.  First, though, she had to learn how to be a chef (El Centro took care of that).  Join us for the rest of the story on the program devoted to introducing you to the women and men who create the flavors you love.  Bud Kennedy from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram is back with us as “Guest Gourmet”, and he has more tips from his famous “Eats Beat” column.  Watch or listen to our show on VOKAL Media, YouTube, Vimeo or iTunes.  And, remember.  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner.  Tell ’em, reservations!

Sevy shares the love

Jim, Sevy, and Bud

Jim White, Jim Severson and Bud Kennedy

Someone once said “If you want to be loved, be lovable.”  In the culinary world this adage fits Jim Severson to a tee (since he loves golf).  “Sevy” as his friends call him (and I’ve never met anyone who knows him that isn’t his friend), may be the most engaging, friendly, helpful, charming, kind…..well, lovable chef there is.  There are reasons beyond great food and service why Sevy’s Grill is bustling with happy guests everyday 20 years after the restaurant opened near Preston Center.  We are delighted to welcome Sevy to “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKALnow.com.  We get a health update from the popular chef and a look at what’s ahead for him.  Most of all we get a dose of his infectious good humor and positive outlook.  I’m also thrilled to have my dear friend and old compadre (from KRLD Restaurant Show days) Bud Kennedy in the house this month as our special “Guest Gourmet”.  Bud is the most trusted source for restaurant news in Tarrant County.  His Fort Worth Star-Telegram “Eats Beat” column is the definitive guide to the best dining choices west of the Trinity (and beyond). Join us for an action-packed episode that includes a special “KISS Cooking” segment (keep it simple and straight forward) as Sevy shows you how to cook salmon perfectly.  It’s the program dedicated to introducing you to the people who create the flavors you love, “Wining and Dining with Jim White”.  Watch or listen to all of our episodes on:  VOKAL Media, YouTube, Vimeo, and iTunes.  And, remember.  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner…tell ’em reservations!

New Zealand winemaking at its best

Hamish Clark Saint ClairHamish Clark, senior winemaker, for Saint Clair Family Estate in New Zealand is our guest on this week’s “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKALnow.com.  This hail-fellow-well-met, and former scientific investigator in the UK (their equivalent of our CSI), has enjoyed making one of New Zealand’s premier Sauvignon Blancs for over 20 years (along with a host of other great wines in the Saint Clair portfolio).  Get his take on the evolution of the wine industry in New Zealand, with a specific focus on his winemaking region in Marlborough on this week’s episode.  Many years ago, another winemaker told me that New Zealand was a “bottle of wine and three movies away from the states, or if you prefer, a movie and three bottles of wine”.  Join us as Hamish Clark brings New Zealand much closer on your favorite digital device.  Welcome to the program devoted to introducing you to the people who create the flavors you love.  Catch all of our episodes on VOKALnow.com, YouTube, Vimeo, and iTunes.  And, remember.  If anybodys asks you what you’re making for dinner…tell ’em reservations!
