You might remember the trip that I took to Marfa several weeks ago. We were wined and dined by John DeMers. From taking us on a tour around Marfa to a drive along the US/Mexican border, John DeMers entertained us with stories of cooking, history, and culture. I was lucky enough to spend three days with this Texas culinary giant, and I also got to sample some of his yummy eats including white bean bruschetta and Texas Peach-Biscotti Crumble. Lucky for you, John Demers will be teaching a class at Central Market, on Sunday, June 27th, 6-9 pm. You'll watch as he makes a number of signature dishes from his latest book, Marfa Shadows.
- Terlingua White Bean Bruschetta;
- Texas Snapper with Pecan Butter;
- Praline Sweet Potatoes;
- Shiner-braised Beef Short Ribs;
- Jalapeno-Cheese Polenta; and
- Texas Peach-Biscotti Crumble with Muscat Canelli Whipped Cream
While we're on the topic of Marfa, I'd like to give another thanks to all the sponsors and hosts of the wonderful trip as well as show off some of @windaddict's photos.
