F is for “foodie,” a person with a particular interest in food. Someone who’s always up for trying new places and has a refined but adventurous palate.

And this month at Cross Timbers Lifestyle, we’re all about feasting with foodies as we just scratch the surface of the fine eats and drinks Southern Denton County has to offer. 

Celebrating food in an unconventional way—let us introduce you to a foodie’s dream realized via the inspiration of Amy Kushnir and Garth Blackburn with Uptown Farmhouse. You’ll be clamoring to snag a seat at one of their upcoming “pop-up” dinners. We also get an inside peek at a gorgeous Flower Mound home renovation that includes a spectacular kitchen any foodie would embrace as well as a heavenly bath to soak in after that great meal prep!

Meanwhile, we’ll give you the scoop on budget-friendly and splurge-worthy wines as we prepare for fall and holidays just around the corner. Duane Price with Priceless Caterings knows a thing or two about the best tools of the trade and gives us a look at what keeps him humming along in the kitchen. 

Whether you consider yourself a foodie, a gourmet, an epicure or just an average eater; whether you’re into nachos at a game, a latte from your favorite café or just a pumpkin full of leftover Halloween candy, we hope this issue inspires you to check out the amazing food scene in your own backyard. 

Happy fall, Cross Timbers readers!
