Chef Jacques Lolliot at NOE Restaurant & Bar in the Omni Houston Hotel on Four Riverway in Houston is serving a special dinner every night in August to benefit the Houston Food Bank during Houston Restaurant Weeks. Some of the dishes on the menu include watermelon salad with gorgonzola cheese and caramelized pecans, Caribbean-style jerk marinated chicken breast with sweet potato puree, black beans and rice, and Texas goat cheese cheesecake with passion fruit gel and raspberry coulis. Chef Lolliot shows food radio talk show host Cleverley Stone how to make a dish from this special menu.
Houston Restaurant Weeks takes place from Aug. 1 through Aug. 31, 2012.
NOE Restaurant & Bar will donate $5 from each Houston Restaurant Weeks dinner sold to the Houston Food Bank.
Founded in 1982, the Houston Food Bank, is a certified member of Feeding America, the nation’s food bank network.
The organization plans to grow to an annual distribution of 100 million nutritious meals by 2018.
