Central Market in Texas knows how to do things right. At their recent two-week event called Passport France, they brought in the most marvelous foods: the best selection of French cheeses, and in the best condition, that I think I’ve ever seen in the U.S.; plaice, fresh-caught langoustines, and beautiful fish; fabulous wines. And they really know how to make bread, the French way!
I taught classes on the regional wines, cheeses, and foods of France, and we had a sold-out audience in both Dallas and in Houston. It was so good to see old friends, including a past trainee, Michelle Rodarte, who now directs the Dallas Central Market Cooking School. Wonderful to rest so easy in competent hands. Thanks to all for the Southern hospitality.
