The best thing i ate this week – CONDE NAST TRAVELER
It won’t be long before Dallas chef Matt McCallister is on every foodie’s radar. The Texas rising star behind FT33 recently landed a James Beard Award semifinalist slot (Best Chef: Southwest) and was listed as one of Food & Wine magazine’s “Best New Chefs.” Behind his modern cuisine and highly stylized plating is a serious connection to the local farming community of north Texas—see it showcased in dishes like raw fluke with nasturtium or sorrel sponge cake. Here, McCallister tells us how a friend’s Ramadan celebration led him to Dallas’s best shawarma.
