DALLAS (May 14, 2012) – Foodies, wine enthusiasts and wannabe cooks will find plenty to please the palate when chefs from the area’s most elite restaurants corral at Fair Park for CityArts Festival May 25 - 27.

Masters in the culinary arts, a variety of North Texas’ most talked-about chefs will be slicing, dicing, stirring and serving up a medley of mouth-watering edibles as they conduct cooking demos complete with complementing wines and spirits throughout the weekend. Chef Richard Chamberlain will return this year and bring his culinary co-stars Chef Hugh Stewart and Sommelier Jeff Bradley of Chamberlain’s Fish Market Grill and Chamberlain's Steak and Chophouse.

Scotch lovers can sample and compare 12-, 15- and 18-year-old marques with Glenfiddich Whisky brand ambassador/expert Dave Allardice on Friday and Saturday night. Plus spirit enthusiasts can enlighten their taste buds with one-on-one and group mixers dubbed “evolving cocktails,” a three-part progressive tasting tour that begins with a single liquor sampling and ends with a tasty concoction.
