Taylor’s Steakhouse at Dumas is known throughout the Mid-South for soy-fed steaks on the menu. The returning Kitchen | Fields Table Tour partner is also becoming known throughout Arkansas for its support of Arkansas soybean growers, according to a news release from the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board.
“The Kitchen | Fields Table Tour, an educational food program created by the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board, offers a delicious answer to Arkansans’ question about where their food comes from,” according to the release.
“Located in Southeast Arkansas, surrounded by soybean fields, Taylor’s has been a Dumas staple since the 1950s. Since transitioning from a local grocery store to a restaurant in 2012, owners Chuck and Pamela Taylor have been creating dishes that bring customers from around the state, and the featured Kitchen | Fields Table dish in June is no exception. Taylor’s is taking a break from its signature steak to highlight another way to consume soybeans, by ordering the blackened duck breast with a wine reduction raspberry chipotle and soy purée,” according to the release.
“We are so honored to be a part of this tour and proud to be a part of our great farming community,” Pamela Taylor said in the release.
The program educates Arkansans about the impact of the soybean industry with Arkansas-owned restaurants.
“Using the power of food to feed Arkansas’s hunger for knowledge, the Kitchen | Fields Table Tour teaches about the impact consumers have on the state’s $2 billion soybean industry. Created in 2015, the Kitchen | Fields Table Tour kicks off in January and runs through June, featuring a partner restaurant’s uniquely mouth-watering take on soybeans from cheesecake to beef noodle soup,” according to the release.
The partner restaurants for the 2018 Kitchen | Fields Table Tour include Taylor’s Steakhouse in June. Others were The Butcher Shop, Little Rock, January; The Hive, Bentonville, February; Postmasters Grill, Camden, March; Three Fold Noodles + Dumpling Co., Little Rock, April; J Town’s Grill, Jonesboro, May.
