Jim White welcomes Janice Provost and Bud Kennedy

Parigi is the Italian word for Paris.  It’s also a longtime foodie favorite restaurant in Dallas operated by Chef Janice Provost (who just happens to love all things French,and especially Paris).  Janice is our guest on this week’s “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKALnow.com.  Find out how she put herself in a position to succeed with the restaurant.  First, though, she had to learn how to be a chef (El Centro took care of that).  Join us for the rest of the story on the program devoted to introducing you to the women and men who create the flavors you love.  Bud Kennedy from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram is back with us as “Guest Gourmet”, and he has more tips from his famous “Eats Beat” column.  Watch or listen to our show on VOKAL Media, YouTube, Vimeo or iTunes.  And, remember.  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner.  Tell ’em, reservations!

Sevy shares the love

Jim, Sevy, and Bud

Jim White, Jim Severson and Bud Kennedy

Someone once said “If you want to be loved, be lovable.”  In the culinary world this adage fits Jim Severson to a tee (since he loves golf).  “Sevy” as his friends call him (and I’ve never met anyone who knows him that isn’t his friend), may be the most engaging, friendly, helpful, charming, kind…..well, lovable chef there is.  There are reasons beyond great food and service why Sevy’s Grill is bustling with happy guests everyday 20 years after the restaurant opened near Preston Center.  We are delighted to welcome Sevy to “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKALnow.com.  We get a health update from the popular chef and a look at what’s ahead for him.  Most of all we get a dose of his infectious good humor and positive outlook.  I’m also thrilled to have my dear friend and old compadre (from KRLD Restaurant Show days) Bud Kennedy in the house this month as our special “Guest Gourmet”.  Bud is the most trusted source for restaurant news in Tarrant County.  His Fort Worth Star-Telegram “Eats Beat” column is the definitive guide to the best dining choices west of the Trinity (and beyond). Join us for an action-packed episode that includes a special “KISS Cooking” segment (keep it simple and straight forward) as Sevy shows you how to cook salmon perfectly.  It’s the program dedicated to introducing you to the people who create the flavors you love, “Wining and Dining with Jim White”.  Watch or listen to all of our episodes on:  VOKAL Media, YouTube, Vimeo, and iTunes.  And, remember.  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner…tell ’em reservations!

The forecast is great food and wine

troy_dunganLegendary weathercaster Troy Dungan guest stars on this week’s “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKALnow.com.  I have always admired Troy’s amazing ability to find great little restaurants and special hotels on his European travels and other trips,  which always turn out to be gourmet adventures.  If you’re planning a trip to Italy or France this fall be sure to check out our show.  Troy shares some great culinary and hospitality tips, and hear about his new book Jesus Makes Salsa by the Seashore, Troy’s take on how Jesus invented fish tacos, and other fun, but insightful Bible story commentaries.  Our special thanks to the former WFAA weatherman (“Trust Troy”) for joining us all month as our “Guest Gourmet”, now we’ll focus on what he’s up to.

Does the thought of canned wine appeal to you?  Before you jump to any conclusions be sure to watch Vicki Briley-White’s special report on canned wine in her latest “Vicki Uncorked” feature coming up in this episode.  I predict you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

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!
