I was a judge Sunday night in the Design District along with three other food experts in town (Mark Ramirez with Dallas Morning News, food writer Bev Garvin and local guru Jimmy Contreras) at Mix-Off, the launch event for this year’s Chefs for Farmers fundraiser, which returns to Lee Park in October. We had to taste more than a dozen cocktails from top mixologists and bites from local chefs, and I’ll tell ya, it wasn’t easy! The judges selected the Chamomile Punch from The Standard Pour for our top drink, while the guests selected FT33’s Solar Eclipse as the best. But judges and guests were in agreement on the most delicious bite: Brian Bell with The Blind Butcher prepared a chicken sausage that was to die for. Everything, though, soared. Here are some pix of the great event.
