While the culinary pinnacle of the State Fair is obviously the wacky fried food offerings, it's always nice to take a load off in an air-conditioned building and let that fried bubblegum digest. Each year the State Fair of Texas hosts the Celebrity Kitchen in Fair Park's Creative Arts Building featuring a host of celebrity (and not-so-celebrity) chef demos, and 2014 is no exception.
This year's lineup will feature a long list of local notables including Knife's John Tesar, Jack Perkins and Jeffery Hobbs of The Slow Bone, Lisa Garza of Sissy's, Fearing's pastry chef Jill Bates, Malai's Braden Wages, Cody Sharp of The Standard Pour, Trevor Ball of the recently opened Scotch & Sausage, Abraham Salum of Salum/Komali and many, many more, for a whopping 114 demos in all during the Fair's three-week run.
The 2014 State Fair of Texas kicks off September 26 and runs through October 19; scope out the full schedule of chef demos here.
