Get Your Game Face on at Team Building with Taste

Team Building with Taste is a culinary team-building concept that opened last year in Far North Dallas, on the NW corner of Preston and Frankford. An experience truly unlike anything I've experienced before, Team Building with Taste's goal is to create a destination for corporations to build their culture and, therefore, their business. Improved team morale will in turn benefit business relations as well as allow coworkers to blow off steam in a fun restaurant-style atmosphere.

The talented and well-coiffed Executive Chef Joey Allette heads up events at Team Building with Taste, coaching guests through the event, from start to finish.

Recently I had the opportunity, along with several other local food bloggers, to experience their Cooking Up Cameraderie experience. Our version of Cooking Up Cameraderie featured 4 teams competing to make 4 different global appetizers, which were prepared in a cooking show style setting, complete with mid-competition challenges (like minutes without our head team member, time without talking, and surprise addition of a secret ingredient). While I've never wanted to work in a restaurant kitchen setting (I have mad respect for those guys - that's why I dine out so often) or compete in any type of cooking show, this experience gives you the real deal. Pressure: on.

Beyond the corporate setting, Team Building with Taste is also ideal for birthday parties or a fun night out with the gals. You can flex your culinary muscles in the kitchen while also creating fellowship among coworkers, teams, and friends. Heck, you might even learn a thing or two (check out my team's Scotch Eggs - I refuse to show you our final plated version).

Make Healthy Choices Simple With The Halal Guys

The Halal Guys recently opened their newest Dallas area location on lower Greenville, the third in the area. The company has plans to expand further in the DFW, with the next being in north Plano in the coming weeks. The company began as a street cart in NY and now has grown to locations throughout the US and worldwide. Talk about a success story! The Halal Guys is an excellent choice for those who want to eat healthy without breaking the bank. Wondering what exactly Halal means? I had that very question a few years back upon seeing it on a restaurant door, and googled away. I also recently wrote an article for Richardson Living explaining just that. It introduces the concept and talks a bit more about the Richardson location of Halal Guys and explains their menu.  The menu is the same at all locations of The Halal Guys. You go through the line, and build your own wrap or platter. Fill it with your choice of gyro, chicken, or combo, then load it up with toppings and sauce

Get Saucy at Razzoo's Cajun Cafe Plano

I've long been a fan of Razzoo's Cajun Cafe, a Texas born restaurant that features scratch-made Lousiana favorites. All locations are locally owned, and the 26-year-old restaurant has most of its locations in Texas, with one in NC, and some new spots TBA in the near future. Some of my favorite fried indulgences at Razzoo's are the "Rat Toes" on their appetizer menu. If you love a bit of spice, ignore the name and order up some of these jalapenos stuffed with shrimp, crab, then battered and fried, served with a Cajun Buttermilk sauce for dipping. And that's just scratching the slippery surface on all of the house-made delicious sauces at Razzoo's. National Hot & Spicy Food Day is Saturday, August 19, so in anticipation of that awesome food holiday, Razzoo's  invited us out for our own little sauce tasting, AKA Delia' Paradise. I was NOT aware that Razzoo's cooks up FIFTEEN different sauces in house, and once I found this out, I cou

A Tribute to El Palacio of Mexican Food, Huntsville, Alabama

This week a large piece of my childhood will be laid to rest. I know you think I'm being overly dramatic, but if you've ever had an iconic place where you've spend a large chunk of your life, I hope you'll understand where I'm coming from on this.  I have literally 24 other restaurant story deadlines to meet, but today the only thing on my mind is the news I received yesterday. I found out by a fluke (an owner's response to a Facebook review I'd posted years ago), and ended up having to be the bearer of bad news to my family and friends who also hold this establishment near and dear to their hearts.  The first restaurant I ever loved is closing their doors this week. This is my farewell. El Palacio opened in Huntsville 51 years ago, in 1966. Jimmy and Nonie McClure opened the very first location in Amarillo in 1962 in a remodeled gas station, after the Mexican food they added to their steakhouse menu started selling like wildfire. They wanted to
