Star chef still loves the game

Chef Stephan PylesStephan Pyles guest stars on “Wining and Dining with Jim White” this week on VOKALnow.com.  Wizened music critics used to say, “Elvis could have retired in 1957 and still been considered the ‘King'”.  But that’s just not how the great ones do it.  Take Chef Stephan Pyles, for instance.  He could have sailed off into the sunset after the success of Routh Street Cafe (or Star Canyon), and still been considered one of the greatest chefs ever.  But he has too much passion and energy to rest on his laurels.  He continues to find new horizons; ways to evolve and reinvent himself.  And, lucky for us.  That’s the reason we have Flora Street Cafe in the Dallas Arts District.  The latest “10 year plan” from Stephan, and the most sublime dining experience in Dallas.  He’s enjoying some projects as a corporate culinary consultant these days, and of course, leaves plenty of time for favorite things, travel and culinary R&D.  Join us as Stephan regales us with stories about his new adventures, and shares a few nostalgic tales from the heady, high flying, high falutin 80’s.  Gourmand Troy Dungan (beloved retired WFAA weather caster) continues as our “Guest Gourmet” and offers some really interesting neighborhood restaurant suggestions.  Tip:  if Troy and his wife Janet like it, chances are really good you will too!  Welcome to the show that introduces you to the men and women who create the flavors you love.  Catch all of our digital TV episodes on VOKAL, YouTube, and Vimeo.  Or, listen to the podcast version on VOKAL and iTunes.  And, remember.  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner.  Tell ’em, reservations!

Coming home, staying home

Jim and RichardRichard Chamberlain is such a Dallas-Fort Worth mainstay, you may not know that as a young, rising star chef he could have gone just about anywhere he wanted.  The popular chef and restaurateur is our guest on this week’s “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKALnow.com.  Richard earned his stripes with some big time chef positions in Bel Air and Aspen.  Who knows where that auspicious beginning might have taken him?  We’re lucky that he and his wife Lisa wanted to come home to Texas.  We’ll let Richard fill-in the highlights of his illustrious career, including his choice to skip FFA (Future Farmers of America) in high school to be in FHA (Future Homemakers of America), so he could meet girls.  Not sure how many dates he got, but the classes did get him interested in cooking.  Chef Chamberlain also gives us a demonstration of a one-pan gourmet meal with his indespensible cast iron skillet in our “KISS Cooking” segment (keep it simple and straightforward).  Dotty Griffith returns as our “Guest Gourmet” giving you more, great neighborhood restaurant finds.  Join us for the digital TV program, and podcast, that introduces you to the men and women who create the flavors you love.  Catch all of our episodes on VOKAL, YouTube, Vimeo, or iTunes.  And, remember.  If anybody asks  you what you’re making for dinner….tell ’em, reservations!

Back in business

Jim and KentKent Rathbun’s legal challenges with his former partner are settled.  He can use his name again.  He can run a restaurant, and talk about it.  I’m glad he’s doing both.  Join Kent this week on “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKALnow.com.  Kent and his wife Tracy have opened Imoto in Victory Park, and we’re giving you a sneak peak on our digital TV show on VOKAL and on YouTube.  You can now watch or listen to our program, whichever suits your lifestyle.  I appreciate either way.   Kent and Tracy have designed a beautiful restaurant and bar setting that will become a must see destination for foodies and a late night partiers alike, I predict.  He’s in great spirits and in fine form and ready to TCB.  “Wining and Dining with Jim White” is the program devoted to introducing you to the people who make the eats and drinks you love.  Catch all of our episodes on VOKAL and iTunes.  And, remember:  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner.  Tell ’em reservations!

Galloping “Guest Gourmet”

Dotty Griffith“A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust, and a hearty bon appétit! Wining and Dining with Jim White rides again!”   And, Dotty Griffith is our special “Guest Gourmet” throughout June on the all new “digital TV” video on demand show from the VOKALnow.com studios.  Dotty’s quite the equestrian anyway, and an amazingly talented food expert, so my fractured spin on the classic “Lone Ranger” opening is an appropriate metaphor for our show’s sidekick.   Like Jay Silverheels’s “Tonto”, the trusted companion for Clayton Moore’s “Masked Man”, our “Guest Gourmet” adds insights about hot new restaurants, great wine finds, travel tips, and generally adds to the flavor of our “news you can use about wining and dining” theme.  And, serves up something interesting in case my mind wanders.  Each week we’ll introduce you to great chefs, winemakers, and culinary stars.  A new “Guest Gourmet” joins us each month.  On our first video/radio show, Dotty is both guest star and Guest Gourmet.  She gives us the aforementioned tips and shares super fun facts from her latest cookbook, The Ultimate Tortilla Press Cookbook.  Vicki Briley-White, Savor Dallas co-founder, also brings you some fascinating “wine trends” on this episode, as part of her ongoing contributions, “Savor the Flavor” and “Vicki Uncorked”.  Join us for the program devoted to introducing you to the people who make the eats and drinks you love.  Watch the shows on YouTube. You can also catch our podcast on iTunes, and watch or listen to all of our shows on VOKAL Media.  And, Remember, if anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner…Tell ’em reservations!
