Taste America Chefs on How to Be a Good Guest

Any experienced traveler knows you don't show up at someone's house empty-handed. We asked our 2017 Taste America All-Stars and Local Stars to dish on what they bring their hosts to show their gratitude, and to share a taste of home.

Recently, James Beard Foundation asked a hand full of the 2017 Taste America All-Stars and Local Stars what they come bearing on a visit with friends. Any guess as to what Chef Tyson Cole would bring? Find out in the full read. #jbf #tasteamerica #jbftasteamericaATX

Round Rock Honey 15th Anniversary

Round Rock Honey 15th Anniversary

It's been 15 years since we started Round Rock Honey and opened up shop at the @[209473582418559:274:Sustainable Food Center] farmers market. Since then, we've been busy sharing our true wildflower honey with as many people as we can. In celebration of our latest milestone, we are teaming up with some great local partners to help us give back to where we started: SFC. Beginning August 1st, a handful of Austin's top dining spots will offer special dishes and/or cocktails for at least one week during the month. Each will feature RRH and one dollar from each dish or cocktail sold will be donated SFC. The confirmed establishments and featured specials include: @[241168322093:274:Odd Duck] - "Peach me how to Shandy" available all month. @[232572697001:274:Salt & Time Butcher Shop and Salumeria] - Carrots with Lardo and Smoked Honey available August 1st-6th. @[169800099716115:274:Trace] - Carrot Honey dessert available August 6th-12. @[770227016332496:274:Fixe Southern House] - An updated version of its best-selling "Honey Badger" cocktail to incorporate Round Rock Honey available August 13th-19th. @[451810484893360:274:Searsucker Austin] – Honey and peppercorn glazed quail with a preserved lemon broth/ charred broccolini, crispy barley, and toasted almonds paired with Searsucker’s spin on the traditional Bee’s Knees cocktail using Round Rock Honey available August 20th-26th. If you don't make it into any of our partner's establishments this month, be sure to find us at the SFC Farmers Market on August 19th - National Honey Bee Day. In addition to our regular vending, we'll have some special art projects for the kids (or you, that's cool) and beer samples from @[1657088397883446:274:The Brewer's Table]. Their beer, Apiary Way, is a limited-edition brew featuring aged Biere de Garde, fermented with native yeast from wildflowers blended with an amber lager brewed with Round Rock Honey and aged on oak spirals. It's gonna be a sweet month! (HA!) We hope you can join us and our partners in supporting a great local organization

Round Rock Honey Company will be honoring #nationalhoneybeeday this Saturday at SFC Farmers' Market Stop by their stall and enjoy samples of beer brewed with RRH from The Brewer's Table, bee crafts for all and more!

Grand Opening + All Night Happy Hour

Grand Opening + All Night Happy Hour

FIIIINAAALLLYYYYY. We're officially open for business, and the Mayor of Frisco is coming to help us make it officially official. We bought some really big scissors and got some ridiculously large red ribbon. Mayor @[518971903:2048:Jeff Cheney] will stop by around 4:30 to cut the ribbon. Following that, we'll get down with all night happy hour deals. $5 cocktails, $5 wine selections, $3 Peroni beer, and more!! We'll also be showing some extra love to Cowboy's supporters. Wear your favorite fan gear and receive $5 off your bill. Stop by our neighbors, @[457001358016086:274:Cow Tipping Creamery at The Star], for ice cream before everyone else in Frisco finds it...

There will be giant scissors, all night happy hour... oh, and Mayor Jeff Cheney. #goinguponawednesday
