I ran over to Stephan Pyles' the other day to see what was up - and do the photo-op thing. Here is Crawford Brock, the owner of Stanley Korshak, presenting a $20,000 check to Stephan Pyles for Share Our Strength's Taste of the Nation Dallas. The national organization raises funds for anti-childhood hunger campaigns at the local level through culinary events. This year's Taste of the Nation Dallas event takes place this Sunday at Stephan Pyles. It's nearly sold out now, but there may be a few tickets left. Check them out here.
After the promotional festivities, Stephan decided to whip me up some grub.
