Pyles announces line-up for celeb chef dinner

For 10 years, Stephan Pyles has hosted an autumn harvest dinner and auction to raise money for his culinary scholarship fund, attracting top talent to join him in the kitchen for an Iron Chef-like cook-off. This year’s star cooks are: Blaine Staniford of Grace in Fort Worth (formerly with Scene and Fuse); Matt Raso of Nobu; Jeffrey Harris of Craft; Tim Byres of Smoke (and formerly Pyles’ exec at his eponymous eatery); Katherine Clapner of Dude, Sweet Chocolate; and of course Pyles and current exec Matt McCallister. Also cooking will be Pyles’ 2010 scholarship winner Keith Hildebrandt. The event kicks off on Nov. 7 at 6 p.m. with a reception. The cost is $150, inclusive of tax and tip.
