Celebrating Fall in Texas

And what a celebration we had! From the beautiful weather to the gracious location and friendly people, last night's dinner was the perfect gathering of friends over a warm, autumn meal. We want to send a special thank you again to our gracious hosts, Tricia and Mark, for opening up their home and backyard to us to enjoy such a great night together.

With around forty attendees (one of our best attended yet), there were people from all over Dallas, who made the trek into the country-esque dining adventure.

The menu focused on locally-grown, seasonally available foods, fresh from local farmers' markets.

Pecan & Lucky Layla Wafer, Rusk Apple Butter
Treaty Oak Cider

Amuse of Beer Braised Cabbage with Deer Sausage in Persimmon Mustard

Fennel Soup, Hazelnut Crisp—Cranberry
Llano Signature White

Texas Butternut Squash Risotto
Llano Meritage

Overnight Braised Nitschke Roast, Sweet Potato & Turnip Puree, Seasons First Brussels Sprouts
Becker Claret

Pumpkin Beignets, Henry’s Maple Ice Cream,
Oak Cliff Coffee—El Salvador

Thanks again to all who attended and we hope you enjoyed yourself as much as we enjoyed providing this meal! We hope to see you at the next Food Creates Community event!
