Food Creates Community Summer BBQ.

Our summer BBQ was a great way to celebrate the beginning of summer. We enjoyed meeting new people, reconnecting with past friends, and welcoming two new purveyors into our circle. Brad from Nitschke All Natural Beef ( donated the brisket and gourmet ground. Shannon and Jenni Neffendorf of Oak Cliff Coffee ( whipped up fabulous iced coffees using their freshly roasted, cold-brewed Ethiopian Sidamo. We had a great time grilling, smoking, cooking, and creating this summertime meal!

Rehoboth Ranch Thai Chicken Skewers grilled over Hickory.

TX Pecan Smoked Baby Backs

Nitschke Coffee Rubbed Burgers, Grilled Sweet Corn, and House made Chips.

Lemley Farms Tomato and Watermelon Salad, Marinated Feta,
Spicer Greens, Texas Olive Oil.

Nitschke Brisket Two ways - Traditional BBQ & Brisket Tacos.

We ended the meal with homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches and the best ever Iced Coffee!
Thanks again to Nitschke All Natural Beef and Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters.
Thanks to all of you for supporting Food Creates Community. It is inspiring to see all of the people in Dallas that support Local and organic produce and meats. Bon Appetit!
