Burgers & Burgundy, the chef-driven fundraiser for DIFFA, returns on Oct. 2 to the same Preston Hollow estate where it has been for the past two years. And once again, the lineup of local and national celebrichefs. In addition to organizing chef John Tesar (Knife, Oak, El Bolero), among those area chefs coming up with creative takes on the traditional sandwich will be: Blaine Staniford (Fort Worth’s Grace, pictured at last year’s event); Matt McCallister (FT33); Tre Wilcox; Brian Luscher (The Grape, Luscher’s Red Hots); Jason Campbell (Whole Foods) and Kevin Williamson (Ranch 616). In addition, newcomers will be Joshua Smith (Maine’s Moody Delicatessen), Kris Morningstar (L.A.’s Terrine, who recently was part of another Knife fundraising dinner in Dallas), Justin Brunson (Denver’s Old Major).
Tickets range from $85 to $150, and benefit DIFFA.
