Dallas’ own downhome and dirty CHEFS FOR FARMERS present the 1st annual Oyster Bash on Sunday, October 26 from 2pm – 6pm at the newly revamped Dallas Farmer’s Market. Festivities include cooked and live oysters from Texas as well as East and West Coasts shucked on site by the biggest foodie chef hotshots, cocktails, wine, an oyster slurp-off, tarot card reader, spins from DJ Souljah and surprises to come.
Jon Alexis (TJ’s Seafood Market), Matt McCallister (FT 33) Kyle McClelland (Proof and Pantry), Jack Perkins (The Slow Bone), Stephen Rogers (Gemma), Jon Stevens (Stock & Barrel), John Tesar (Knife) and special guest Randy Rucker (Briar and Bramble, Houston) serve up oyster-centric dishes and sides during the mix and mingle event.
Libations served up BYOG (bring your own glass) style will showcase spirits and wines from the Glazer’s portfolio. The $85 ticket is inclusive of food, libations, tax and gratuity. Tickets available now @ Prekindle. A portion of the proceeds benefit Cafe Momentum and Foodways Texas.
Sponsors to date include Ben E. Keith, Black Book Ink, Edible DFW, Glazers, The Joule and Whole Foods.
Deeply rooted in the ethics of sustainability and eco-consciousness, the mission of Chefs for Farmers is clear: Showcase the talents of the city’s best chefs and artisans, celebrate the region’s most dedicated farmers, and invite chefs and culinary influencers from around the country to help shine a light on all that is happening here in our backyard through a series of thoughtfully created food events.
