Chefs For Farmers is the most fabulous food and wine festival in Dallas, and beyond!

I was so thrilled to break out my cowboy boots, round up my favorite moms and head out for some fun music and food- right here in our backyard.

On Thursday evening, we attended the famous ‘Bite Night’ event, and it absolutely blew me away.

When we walked up to the entrance all the little lights were sparkling above us. There was a beautiful display of fruit and vegetable baskets, and the music indicated a fun night of upbeat vibes!

We sampled various wines, and then walked around, stopping at different food stations along the way.

I really enjoyed meeting the different chefs, indulged in their tasty bites, and admired their beautiful dish presentations. Every single chef I met had a lovely spirit, a big smile, and was so enthusiastic to share a taste of their craft. 

People were laughing, and enjoying the night.

Towards the end we placed our little “pig” voting chips in our favorite chef’s bucket. Winners were announced, and everyone felt like a winner. 

We even broke out a few dance moves ourselves, and I’m not going to lie, it was really nice to just let loose and have some fun. 

A few days later, on Sunday, was the ‘Main Event’ at Lee Park.

My dear and special friend Iris Midler (founder of Chefs for Farmers) invited me be one of the judges for the afternoon’s big AWARDS!! I was so excited to select the winner for the team with with the “Best Display”!!

It was a tough decision but after carefully walking through a few times I chose FT33 as the winner!!

Congratulations!! 🌟

FT33 WIN for BEST DISPLAY!

it smelled smoky good!

the chefs working the booth were personable + had great energy 

the wagu beef tacos with radish were pretty, and very tasty

the overall feel of the stand was earthy; It felt like we were out in the woods and not under a tent

Congratulations to all the winners, and everyone who made it so hard to choose!!

I cannot wait till next year, the CFF team knocked this one out of the park! 

Thank you again to the incredible Iris Midler and the whole Chefs For Farmers team for an impeccable event and a lifetime of wonderful memories!!

Cheers + till next year, CFF!!
