In our efforts to support the foundation of the festival, comprised of our local, Dallas farmers and restaurants, that need us now more than ever, we are bringing you Chefs For Farmers Reboot. From November 30-December 6, 2020, join us as we will be hosting a series of virtual  classes to celebrate our homegrown culinary and mixologist talent here in Dallas, and support those who have supported us for the last 10 years. Majority of ticket proceeds will be directly benefitting our participating chefs and their staff who have been affected by the pandemic.

Each class will be hosted by a guest chef, mixologist, or sommelier to guide you step-by-step through their signature recipes, answer your questions LIVE along the way, and be concluded with a live Q&A. Whether you’re a cooking or cocktail novice or just looking to brush up on your skills, there is a course for you! Each ticket purchaser will be emailed a zoom link along with the recipe, ingredients and equipment list. Please ensure you have Zoom downloaded beforehand. Some classes include an at home package, which will you pick up the week of the event! Scroll down to view the class list. Limited seats available. Reserve your spot today!
