Want a few free cooking classes? The Savor Dallas site has some good ones. Watch Lavendou owner Pascal Cayet demonstrate the fine art of making a beef tenderloin with black peppercorn and mushroom sauce. Groovy music warning: Put on your earplugs, put on your eyeshades, you know where to put the cork.

BTW:“The 6th annual Savor Dallas, “An International Experience of Wine, Food, Spirits and the Arts,” to be held March 5-7, 2010, is dedicated to showcasing the finest chefs in Dallas-Fort Worth and the world’s best beverages and celebrating the renaissance of Downtown Dallas, especially the Arts District, Dallas Farmer’s Market and host hotel Sheraton Dallas.

  • Nancy, Thanks for the “groovy music” comment. Good point. I am producing all the new videos sans background music. I thought it would be a cool way to cover up the noise from the vent system in the kitchens. Turns out, it’s just more noise. Be well. Jim
