Bolsa's Jeff Harris :: My 24-Hour Food Journal

Break bread with the city's top chefs in an idyllic organic farm setting.


A Community Cooks, Thursday, April 11, 6 p.m.

We asked Jeff Harris of Bolsa and Bolsa Mercado, one of the celeb chefs behind the A Community Cooks event this week, to write down everything he ate in a day.

Thursday, 8:50 am Greek yogurt, blueberries and granola are staples. I usually also share a glass of apple juice in the morning with my 2 year old son, Jackson. 

11:26 am I don't drink coffee until I get to work, or I stop by The Pearl Cup on the way. Drip roast drip or cafe latte. 

4:07 pm Since I'm prepping in a hot kitchen all day, I never really want to sit down and eat a huge meal. I will make myself a small salad or sandwich, and I love to snack on cashews or pistachios. Sometimes when we are doing a lot of butchering, my chef de cuisine will make tacos out of some of the trim from portioning proteins - always a great treat. 

Friday, 12:15 am Finally! Beer and a late-night sandwich at The Libertine.

7:30 am I don't get to cook a lot at home, but when I do it is usually something simple. My wife Tiffany loves tomato salads - usually with cucumber, avocado and fresh herbs. We shop at Sprouts and Fiesta and, lately, the Dallas Farmers Market once a week to grab some fresh vegetables and fruit for the house.

Meet Jeff in a foodie-approved atmosphere, along with chefs from Oak, Boulevardier and more, and indulge in pop-up kitchens lined up on the football field-turned-farm, drinks, live music and dancing. We're giving away four tickets to A Community Cooks, a total value of $300. To enter, share Dallas Tidbits with one friend using the red rectangular button below.
