It’s one of my favorite wines to drink this time of year, and never too expensive to enjoy. A good rosé is key! Plus, Father’s Day is coming up…here are three distinct offerings you can find at most H-E-Bs:
Welcome to the most popular event during Fiesta! Brighton Center’s ‘A Taste of the Northside’ benefits a great cause, with proceeds going directly towards providing support for children with disabilities and their families. This past year was a HUGE success…the celebration raised more than $540,000!
My sommelier Matt didn’t have to sell me on the 12 pack offered by Full Sail of their Session Lager. In fact, it’s already been one of my ‘Beers of the Month’ here on Goodtaste! It’s an All-American lager; blonde and super smooth. Expect the price point on these to be between $11-13 for the pack.
The Westin La Cantera Resort is simply beautiful this time of year! I invite you to kick back, relax and preview some of the new “Texas-driven” menu items that Chef John Armstrong IV and his team at Brannon’s Café have put together:
Comfort food is so the latest buzz again, and deviled eggs have reemerged as a classic family recipe you’ll find on many fine dining menus as of late! Perfect for your next big bash, or just to snack on at home – I can’t get enough of them. Cooking Connections brings things together nicely with their southern smoked salmon rendition.
Most mothers I know deserve more than just one day per year for some extra love and attention. Red or white, H-E-B has you covered in the vino department. The Pinot Grigio by Riondo is a lovely Italian white — light and crisp with hints of honey and lemon — at just as lovely of a price point: $10! I hear it’s a real charm with snapper…
Welcome to the most spectacular patio in the city…Paesanos 1604. Come for the incredible food and stay for the unbeatable ambiance (live music every Friday night, for example). Chef Clark McDaniel and his culinary crew have recently revealed a new Spring menu packed with temperate eats like their luscious oak-grilled salmon with leek mashed potatoes, drizzled in a refreshing raspberry vinaigrette. Simply marvelous.
I had the incredible pleasure of previewing a wonderful beer dinner featuring Alaskan Brewery beers and Sharky’s American Grill on Eldridge Pkwy in Houston.
The River Walk is just gorgeous this time of year! Purchase these tasty morsels from street vendors, but also pay a visit to Zinc Bistro & Wine Bar while you’re downtown for Chef Manny’s sizzlingly tender anticuchos.
It’s my duty to spread the good news about one of my all-time favorite seafood joints…that’s Gaido’s in Galveston; a restaurant that recently celebrated it’s 100th year anniversary! I caught up with Nicolas Gaido for a crash course in their New Orleans-style Barbeque Shrimp.
