Ross, a trained sommelier, has also created some interesting wine pairings to go along with Rodriguez’s dishes like a local tomato salad, 8th Wonder Beef Short Rib and Cherry Cordial & Chocolate Bread Pudding. Ross willl donate $1 to the Houston Food Bank for each wine glass pairing sold during the month-long event. Chef Rodriguez shows food radio talk show host Cleverley Stone how to make his Corn Flake Crusted Chicken Fried Steak and Ross shares his wine pairings.
Founded in 1982, the Houston Food Bank, is a certified member of Feeding America, the nation’s food bank network.
