The down-home, no-fuss culinary event of the year is back! Bring your stretchy pants because the fifth annual Chefs for Farmers Main Event is going to leave you stuffed, speechless, and completely satisfied. This farm-to-table festival features a culinary treasure map of the finest chefs, Texas farmers, food artisans, wineries, local brews, and top shelf spirits in an all-you-can-eat feast that you will never forget.
Take your time and explore dozens of locally-sourced dishes, from East Texas peas and smoked cornbread to cabrito kebabs. Hit up the Texas BBQ Trail for A Bar N Ranch beef and Texas craft beer. Grab a place in line for the return of the popular Biscuit Bar. Relax in the Infiniti Lounge with burgers and Roca Patrón. Go further afield with raw oysters, sugar toads, and eel fried rice. Satisfy your sweet tooth with strawberry sorbet and handcrafted popsicles. Chat with local farmers who grow your food. Sip crafted cocktails or wine (or both!). Dance to Dean Fearing and the Lost Coyotes. Play Whole Foods Market lawn games or smile for the D Magazine photo wagon. Vote for your favorite dish with your pink piggy. And above all, enjoy yourself!
