"Last night at @millesime_mexico in @cdmx_oficial, @ryanpera showed a crowd of over 70 people how to cook five dishes, while @vincentshungry helmed a kitchen of volunteer cooks to serve each of the dishes to the crowd. Thank you to @holahouston for putting on a fantastic program together with @houstonmethodist. Proud to be a part of it.

Chef Rebecca Masson reviews Revival Dog at Revival Market
$$ | Specialty Shop
The Heights
"There's something about a hot dog that makes you think of the streets of NYC and baseball games; those are about the only times I eat them. But the Revival Dog is a whole different ball game. It's made in-house with Mangalitsa and topped with this amazing green tomato relish and chicharrones, all served on an amazing pretzel bun from Slow Dough. You can't find a better dog anywhere else."
Chef Chris Shepherd reviews Housemade charcuterie plate at Revival Market
$$ | Specialty Shop
The Heights
"Revival Market is a neighborhood grocery store in the Heights with amazing meats. These guys are true pioneers in Houston when it comes to being local and sustainable. One of my favorite dishes is this salumi plate, which is housemade from the pigs that they raise on the Revival Farms just outside of town. It’s not too salty, just cured perfectly."
