Tamara Reynolds (whom you may recognize from Unique Eats) and her husband, Karl, have been hosting an underground Sunday Night Dinner at their Queens apartment for nearly eight years. Needless to say, the couple are used to cooking for a crowd under pressure. But what happens when Cooking Channel sends them down to Fredericksburg, Texas to put on a homegrown feast for the Lone Star State in the new special Married With Dishes?
“Guerilla warfare,” Tamara says. “It’s a stressful cooking situation, as you’ll see. Top Chef’s got nothing on me.”
The pair was given 12 hours to find a location, source ingredients and invite total strangers to a dinner that embodied Texas while still staying true to the area’s (and Tamara’s) German roots.
“There’s a whole German community in the middle of Hill Country in Texas,” she says. “I had no idea.”
