Chef David visits the State Fair of Texas

Chef David was invited to be a guest at the cooking demos at the State Fair of Texas in September.  How great it was to go our and talk about cooking with some foodies and help show how to make some great pork belly.  During the cooking demo, David was pleased to share a great recipe that would help them “wow” their next dinner party guests.

David said that he had an opportunity to meet some great fans and even had a talk with someone who was considering making the jump from the current career to follow their cooking dream.  Never give up on your dreams!  No matter how distant or far fetched they might appear.

Chef David said, “It was a great time and look forward to doing a demo at another State Fair event!”

Fresh Restaurant Concept Coming to Flower Mound

Flower Mound, Texas, May 29, 2013 — Flower Mound’s newest chef-owned and operated restaurant will leave no stone unturned as it prepares for a Fall 2013 opening:

  • Chef David Burdick partnered with the celebrated designer Hatsumi Kuzuu to create an inviting industrial-farm space where patrons will feel comfortable to ‘come as you are.’ Dallas-based Kuzuu Design is the award winning firm behind FT33, Tei An, Steel, Sissy’s Southern Kitchen & Bar and The LOT.
  • Alliances are forming with local farmers and co-ops to source the ingredients for Twelve Stones’ New American cuisine and handcrafted cocktails.
  • State-of-the-art commercial kitchen equipment will enable the restaurant to prepare all food in-house.
  • The menu is evolving to incorporate Chef David’s experience in the kitchen at Dragonfly Dallas and Suze Restaurant, influences of culinary mentors Dan Landsberg, Jeffery Hobbs and Gilbert Garza, and lifelong favorites.

Offering updated interpretations of classic American comfort food, Twelve Stones will feature a rotating “chalkboard” menu based on what is in season, locally sourced, and inspiring to the chef.

“I’m passionate about food, and this has been a dream 20 years in the making,” says Chef David, who walked away from two decades in the IT industry to attend culinary school and cut his teeth at one of Dallas’s most eclectic fine-dining restaurants, Dragonfly in Hotel ZaZa. “I’m not a fancy guy, so I want to serve upscale food in an inviting, relaxed atmosphere.”

Twelve Stones is destined to serve up both, in a place where you can pull up a pine bench, or relax at the 35-seat bar with friends and neighbors, order a Pomegranate Melon Martini and savor a memorable meal.

The new Flower Mound restaurant is months away from opening, but the chef who calls Flower Mound home hopes to entice the community with a preview of his signature Mom’s Dessert: Cinnamon French Toast Bread Pudding, served with Maple Coffee Ice Cream, Candied Bacon and Strawberry Sauce.
