FT33 Chef Matt McCallister teams up with Chef Randy Rucker of Houston for a 14-course dinner
The event "Two Chefs Lost in the Woods" features ingredients found in the Texas backwoods.
DALLAS While writing about FT33 last month, I specifically stated that Randy Rucker and Matt McCallister were destined to become BFFs. If these two chefs are lost in the woods together, this can only mean they have become best foraging friends forever. This dinner is like Christmas morning. The winning lottery ticket. Vacation. Chocolate. A boyfriend that doesn’t cheat. The Pearly Gates of heaven being wide open.
No one is trying to be spastic right now. It’s just happening. Both of these guys cheffing together in the same kitchen should make every person’s toes tingle. It’s not just a dinner. Do not think for even a single second that this is just another dumb dinner for a chef to make a buck or $150 per person. This is the real deal. I feel sorry for any person living life without attending this dinner.
People who do not respect chefs having the rare ability to create the most incredible cuisine from foraging need to leave the country immediately. Just get on a plane and go. People that only venture out on Valentine’s Day or when Dale Earnhardt, Jr. wins a race need to run over to III Forks for dinner. Rucker and McCallister do not have time for non-appreciative-foraging-rookies.
Best Paragraph Ever:
“FT33 and Chef Matt McCallister will welcome Chef Randy Rucker of Houston, for a guest chef dinner and a one‐of‐a‐kind dining experience. Rucker, winner of the 2011 Houston Rising Star award will bring his classical Southern perspective infused with modern techniques to McCallister’s season inspired modern cuisine for a one‐night‐only culinary event. The evening will highlight bounty from both McCallister and Rucker’s foraging expeditions throughout the Texas woods in an innovative 14‐course small plates menu.”
This dinner will take place at 6 p.m. on Monday, January 14. The only way I will not be attending this dinner is if I am in a coma or dead. There are 14-courses being served for $125 or $150 with wine pairings. This does not include tax and gratuity, so do not stiff your server. Please & thanks. Be in a hurry because space is limited.
Reserve your spot by calling FT33 at 214.741.2629 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
