MetroTex Realtors celebrate local farmers with 100-year anniversary Dean Fearing dinner, echoing Chefs for Farmers “eat local” theme


It makes perfect sense that Realtors care a lot about the communities they serve, which is why I was delighted that the 18,000 member group representing DFW Realtors, MetroTex, invited the EscapeHatch crew to celebrate its 100-year anniversary at a farm-to-table dinner from chef Dean Fearing. The dinner last week dovetailed into the group’s overarching anniversary campaign, “Home is where your roots are.”

Outstanding In The Field set up their signature long table, snaking it around the broad oaks at Delaney Vineyards in Grapevine. All the produce was grown locally. So were the proteins. Fearing, his exec chef, Eric Dreyer,  and a few of their restaurant staff prepared the meal in a portable outdoor kitchen constructed on site.

“I’ve been supporting  local farms and using local ingredients for many years,” Fearing told the Hatch at the event, “which is why I love the MetroTex theme and that grass roots organizations like Chefs for Farmers are also spreading the word.”

I was happy to meet so many Realtors who attend and support CFF. If you’d like to get involved or help celebrate great food and the people who put it on your plates, be sure to mark November 2-4 on your calendar this year– co-founder and leader Iris McCallister has an incredible lineup of local, seasonal, cheffy food events planned.
