We’ve always had a crush on Blythe Beck, a.k.a. The Naughty Chef.
Because, quite frankly, the only possible way a woman can seduce us is with copious amounts of butter, bacon and booze. And she’s not afraid to use any of them. Sometimes not even in the kitchen.
Well, she’s back in Big D as the resident chef for Version 4.0 of Kitchen LTO, the permanent pop-up in Trinity Groves, and reminding diners daily why they’ve missed her southern-fried personality and sinful cooking skills so much.
Especially during brunch.
Start with the Queso Travieso, which translates, of course, to naughty cheese. Put us in a box filled with this blend of chorizo, poblano and Asadero, seal the lid and we’ll gladly eat our way out. Even better if said box is made from her homemade tortillas, but we’re not going to ruin our fantasy with logistics.
The menu is loaded with lots of fantastic versions of traditional dishes, but it’s the secret, super-naughty off-menu item that made our heart skip a beat (then six after we ate it).
It’s called the YOLO Stack, but be warned, even though you only live once, too much of this and it’ll be a shorter existence. But it’s worth shaving a day or two off our expiration date for this edible gluttonous Jenga tower, which starts with two glazed donuts that are then topped with chicken fried ribeye, two eggs cooked to your preference and plenty of hollandaise.
Sweet, crunchy, salty, buttery and decadent to the tenth power, this is pretty much Blythe Beck on a plate.
With a side of hot sauce.
