Last weekend, Cadillac presented a see/drive/eat event at Plano’s Shops at Willowbend that was part test drive (the 2012 Cadillacs) and part meet-and-greet-then-eat with chefs Bruno Davailon (Dallas’ Mansion on Turtle Creek)and Marcus Samuellson (of Harlem’s Red Rooster and NYC Aquavit — and fresh off the cover of Vanity Fair, btw).  The two cooked in a mock Iron Chef contest where I was a judge. (For the record, the crowd’s vote was evenly split, so the contest was declared a draw.)

Davaillon prepared grilled quail on grits (with a homemade, bacon-spiked bbq sauce). Samuellson was more daring, topping a brick of braised beef short ribs with a vinegar-spiked pickled veggie slaw and a smear of sweet potato puree.

Fun event. If you were there, you got to taste some pretty fine food. If you missed it, you can check out the multi-city lineup here.
