Power Dining maestro

Sonny Pache and Jim White

Jim White and chef Sonny Pache

Sonny Pache, executive chef of Ocean Prime in Dallas, joins us on this week’s “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKAL.  Find out why Sonny’s colleagues affectionately refer to him as “Kung Fu Panda” in the kitchen, and how his agile footwork, determination, and talent took him from high school football player, to business major in college, to executive chef (in 8 months) for one of America’s top independent restaurant companies (Cameron Mitchell Restaurants).  It’s the podcast devoted to bringing you stories about the people who make the eats and drinks you love.  You can catch all of our episodes on iTunes and on VOKALnow.com.  Remember:  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner….tell ’em reservations!
