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. At the Culinary Showcase inside the Texas Museum of Automotive History, festival goers ages 21 and up can enjoy cooking demos, samplings, wine and spirits pairings, mixology sessions, craft beer, liquor and wine tastings, evolving cocktails, scotch flight tastings, and more Memorial Day weekend.

NOTE: Guests must be 21 years of age with valid ID to enter the Culinary Showcase.

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. Other local luminaries will include Executive Chef Joel Harloff of The Second Floor; Chef David Holben of Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House; Executive Chef Dan Landsberg of Dragonfly at Hotel ZaZa; Executive Chef David McMillan of Screen Door; Chef/Owner Janice Provost of Parigi; Executive Chef Matt Raso of Nobu Dallas; Chef Rich Rogers of Scardello; Executive Chef Jim Severson of Sevy’s Grill; Chef TJ Lengnick and Mixologist Sean Connor of Whiskey Cake; and more.

and sample an assortment of craft beer, liquor and wine by Constellation Wines including world-renowned musician Dave Matthews and award-winning winemaker Steve Reeder’s The Dreaming Tree collection of high-quality wines. 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.
