If you’ve ever wondered where world-renowned, James Beard Award-winning chefs go for grub in their downtime, you’re in luck. The same culinary geniuses that have topped endless ‘Best Of’ lists, graced the covers of Food & Wine and Bon Appetit and helped put H-Town on the national map are now making it their mission to show residents and visitors the “underbelly” of the city’s food scene with the ‘Where the Chefs Eat’ Houston Culinary Tours.
Forget the upscale restaurants, for once-they aren’t the only things setting Houston apart from major epicurean cities like Chicago and San Francisco. This time around, the city’s top chefs-including James Beard, Award Winner Chris Shepherd, Chopped winner Justin Turner, and many others-are teaming up to shift the spotlight to the small, independent, ethnic spots-whose recipes have been passed down from generation to generation.
With less than 25 guests per chef-led tour, participants will gain intimate knowledge about the city: unexplored neighborhoods; undiscovered restaurants; markets that contribute to the locally-driven menus of each chef, and intimate time with these chefs.
