Fearing's hosts the next big event in its celebrity chef dinner series, with contemporary Creole cuisine from John Folse and Rick Tramonto. The John Folse/Rick Tramonto dinner will feature a first-time Dallas presentation of some of the chefs' most highly-rated creations, including Creole snapping turtle soup, short ribs, and white chocolate bread pudding crème brûlée.
Lousiana chef John Folse founded Lafitte's Landing Restaurant in 1978. In 1989, Folse became the first non-Italian chef to create the Vatican State Dinner in Rome, prompting the Louisiana Legislature to name him "Louisiana’s Culinary Ambassador to the World." James Beard Award-winning Rick Tramonto is former executive chef/partner of Chicago’s four-star Tru Restaurant and culinary director of Tramonto’s Steak & Seafood, Osteria di Tramonto and RT Sushi Bar & Lounge.
In 2012, Folse and Tramonto opened New Orleans' Restaurant R’evolution, the home of contemporary Creole cuisine and a marriage of Folse’s classic Southern approach and Tramonto’s contemporary new world style. From rich gumbos to beignets, crawfish and "pork and beans," the R’evolution menu offers a remarkable sense of place experienced in few American restaurants.
