Escape to an Evening Filled with Culinary and Decorative Art

Empty Bowls Chef Series

Introducing a new event benefiting Tarrant Area Food Bank and our vision of communities where no one has to go hungry. The Empty Bowls Chef Series is your opportunity to explore amazing local flavors fused with recipes from all over the world! Join us for an evening filled with culinary and decorative art.

Each event will take you to different regions without leaving your seat. Your taste buds will experience flavors from our Asian Persuasions menu, Modern American Marvels, Seafood Sensations, and Cowboy Soul Food. Each trip will begin with a cooking demonstration for a three-course meal. While sipping on wine or beer specially paired to the menu, each chef will share cooking tips and dish tastings. Each guest will also receive a packet with recipes to take home.

Your tour guide chef for each journey and the date of departure are below. Each voyage begins at 6 p.m. and concludes at 8 p.m. in Tarrant Area Food Bank’s the Dorothy and Norman M. Kronick Building, 2525 Cullen Street, Fort Worth.
