Cheesy, Hand-Tossed Pizza & Royal Pancakes This Weekend!

This weekend on Goodtaste, you’re in for the royal treatment! Join us as we toss cheesy handmade pizzas at a Hill Country restaurant that’s all the buzz, then dine royally with Princess Di’s former chef. We’ll take you to East Texas’ secret spot for fine cooking, set in a beautiful wooded hideaway. Then, it’s off to Houston’s food palace for upscale Indian cuisine.

Set your DVR and scroll for show times! Houston and San Antonio, we have showtimes updates for you below.


From hand-tossed pizzas with fresh toppings of every kind to live music on the patio, Fralo’s in the Hill Country is all about fun! Locals love their signature pizzas like the Little Hottie with tempting toppings like spicy Italian sausage and their rich homemade red sauce. But you’ll find more than pizza from Fralo’s — like cool caprese skewers and Formaggio di Capra with herbed focaccia and goat cheese. These fine Italian eats come from a hardworking husband and wife duo who’ve brought the whole family along for the delicious ride!


Explore the exotic flavors of India at Houston’s exquisite Kiran’s! Beautiful pots of bubbling curries with spices from faraway lands fuse with modern cooking techniques from the woman considered to be the pioneer of Indian cooking in Houston! Luxuriate in classic Indian dishes like chicken tikka masala and paneer, as you nibble on fresh-baked naan and that palak chaat you see above with fresh tempura style basil, kale, and spinach, drizzled in apple and mint chutney! This weekend, you’ll get the recipe for a beet and goat cheese encrusted salad to bring these intoxicating flavors to your table!

The Grove Kitchen & Gardens

Escape to a beautiful wooded hideaway in East Texas, where fine cooking is on the menu at The Grove Kitchen & Gardens! You’ll find sumptuous Southern food with all the fixings, but with an upscale twist — like the chicken fried steak with creamy avocado sauce and chimichurri seasoned potatoes. You’ll find a vibrant lodge style bar, a live music amphitheater, a smokehouse, and a chic grassy patio for dining outside, all with a lush forest as the backdrop. As fancy as it feels while you’re here, The Grove is all about family.

Eating Royally with Darren McGrady

You’re in for the royal treatment this weekend as Princess Di’s former chef Darren McGrady joins us on Goodtaste! Join McGrady in his personal kitchen as he dazzles you with dishes you can make at home like these warm mini pancakes with whipped jalapeno creamed cheese, pulled pork, and a dot of peach jam! Watch as he prepares one of the Queen Elizabeth II’s favorite dishes — a divine beef tenderloin with a chocolate and zinfandel reduction sauce — and even the Duchess of Cambridge’s favorite sticky toffee pudding!

Don’t forget to stick around for my wine finds for special occasions — and a delectable beef filet with a mushroom risotto made with quinoa from Goya Foods!
