A Culinary Showdown Toasting Virgin America's DFW Launch

| March 25, 2011 | Parties

A Culinary Showdown, Co-hosted by DUO and Modern Luxury Dallas
THE PARTY: Red-hot Virgin America is spicing up the skyline with its recent DFW launch, so we thought it only apropos to offer a toast with some of the city’s top gourmet players. Lynae Fearing and Tracy Rathbun fearlessly took on their celeb chef-husbands, Dean and Kent, in a savory smack down at Mrs. Fearing and Mrs. Rathbun’s delicious new enterprise, DUO: All Things Culinary. Brendan Higgins added plenty of flavor, commentating on the action and settling the score, while guests celebrated throughout the night with Mo√ęt & Chandon bubbly clinks.
THE DISH: Who could pass up samples of Dean and Kent’s delicious competition plates, or Tracy and Lynae’s zesty take on tortilla soup and Asian shrimp noodle stir-fry, alongside Belvedere Vodka’s orange- and citrus-infused cocktails and flowing Ruffino wine.
THE VICTORS: It was close, but the guys took home the win— although many guests begged to differ, cheering on their favorite wives’ club.
