Next big Chefs for Farmer’s dinner to be held at Highland Park Cafeteria
DALLAS An all-star team of Dallas' top chefs celebrate local farms at a benefit dinner March 13 at the famed Highland Park Cafeteria. Each chef takes a classic approach to dining with farm-fresh ingredients, preparing two gourmet dishes to be served cafeteria-style. Guests interact with chefs one-on-one as they grab a tray and walk the queue selecting from a multitude of comfort classics served up by DFW's finest. Complimentary old school style drinks will be served.
DJs Jennifer Miller and Paul Paredes will be mixing the tracks at this one-of-a-kind event with a special appearance by guest DJ/Chef Matt McCallister.
A portion of the proceeds benefit The Family Place, the largest family violence service provider in the Dallas area serving thousands of victims of family violence each year with award-winning programs that keep women and children safe. For more than 32 years, The Family Place's mission to end the epidemic of family violence has remained constant through intervention, emergency shelter, and crisis counseling for all victims, saving lives with transitional housing and case management, transforming lives for the better.
Founded in 2010 by Chef Matt McCallister and his wife Iris, Chefs for Farmers was organized to raise awareness for the importance of using local ingredients and supporting the farms and farmers in and around Dallas-Fort Worth and North Texas.
The feast begins at 4 p.m. as each guest picks up a tray and walks the line. Cost is $85 per person excluding tax and service fee.
