From All Of Us At  Basil Fest 2016:

THANK YOU To everyone who came out on May 21 st for our 7th Annual Basil Fest!  We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Thank you to our Competing Chefs in the
"Breads & Spreads" Challenge 2016
And with your generosity we were able to donate $757 to

Returning Heroes Home

so they may enhance the Healing and Therapy Gardens at the Warrior and Family Support Center at Ft. Sam Houston


Enjoy the pictures from the day.



This is the second year that Fratello's has won the challenge!   Can they do it three years in a row?  We will have to wait and see what 2017 brings.


We also want to thank our other challengers: Chef Jenny Mattingsley at Oblate Theological  Center for the Cranberry Bread with Goat Cheese Spread and Basil Pesto topping.  And of course Chef Jacky from Broadway Daily Bread with the delicious Bread Points of basil and cheese with the wonderful spread of Avocado, Basil and Bacon. All winners here!

Their entry was a savory and sweet:  Their signature bread dough made into balls with basil pesto filling and a "cinnamon bun" style ball with basil swirl on top.
