I LOVE it when a friend of mine does something noteworthy, and it’s rather hard to top Stephan Pyles these days. We’ve been dear friends for over 30 years, and today he was named by the Dallas Morning News as the most notable(Top!!!) chef in Dallas for 2014.

This past Sunday, in Dallas, Chef Stephan Pyles was honored for his 30 years of continuous support of Share Our Strength, No Kids Hungry. I had the privilege of being Stephan’s guest. Shown here, left to right, is another dear friend, Dr. Scott Branks, Chef Stephan Pyles, Wanda Gierhart (senior VP of Marketing for all of Neiman Marcus–Go Girl!!!), Chef Dean Fearing (one of Texas’ most renown chefs and from what I hear, quite a guitarist), and myself, happy as all get-out.
