On Saturday chefs from around Texas and a few national outliers will serve their interpretations of tacos at the Rock Your Taco event. Uchi and Uchiko’s Tyson Cole won last year’s competition with a cinnamon-laced pork jowl and black lime treat with a Moo Shu wrapper in lieu of a tortilla.
Head back to Butler Park on Saturday and Sunday for demos from chefs like Tim Love as well as the grand tasting tent, which features 40 local artisans and about 50 beverages. However, be warned that last year was a bit of a stampede, so come with your kneepads already on and elbows at the ready.
Tickets come in two price ranges, the “taste pass” for $250 or the “savor pass” for $850.
