Some of the area’s finest chefs and foodies gathered Wednesday night at Stephan Pyles’ San Salvaje to learn the news about this Fall’s James Beard Foundation’s Taste America: “Local Flavors From Coast To Coast.” To the gourmets, this is like winning the Republican Convention, Final Four or Olympics.
Dallas scored thumbs-up across the boards. Yes, Dallas will be one of the 10 cities in the two-day program, which includes a special evening starting off with a walk-around tasting reception from a lineup of local chefs, followed by a collaborative four-course dinner crafted by a Taste America All-Star and a local celebrity chef.
The Dallas event starts on “Friday, September 26, in the Wedgwood Room of the Hilton Anatole with ‘A Night of Culinary Stars,’ an exclusive dining event benefiting the James Beard Foundation in partnership with Café Momentum.”

The chefs for the reception of tasties will be Omar Flores of Casa Rubia, Matt McCallister of FT33, Janice Provost of Parigi , David Uygar of Lucia, Teiichi Sakurai of Tei-An and James Beard Award winner Tim Byres of Smoke.
Afterwards, guests will be seated for an exceptional dinner prepared by Taste America All-Star Patrick O’Connell of the Inn at Little Washington and hometown chef extraordinaire Stephan Pyles, both James Beard Award winners.
The next day there will be a series of free, in-store consumer events at Sur La Table including a cooking demonstration with Patrick, book signings, tasting from local producers and artisans and much more.
As you know, the Wedgwood Room ain’t the Chantilly, so seating will be very limited. Translation: get those reservations in and start dieting.
