Yesterday, the James Beard Foundation — which awards the Oscars of the food world — announced this year's 10-city tour called Taste America, in which Beard-honored all-stars team with prominent local chefs to host luxurious dinners. And Dallas is one of the stops.

The Hilton Anatole will host A Night of Culinary Stars on September 26. The evening starts with a tasting reception of nibbles from David Uygur (Lucia), Tim Byres (Smoke), Janice Provost (Parigi), Matt McCallister (FT33) and Omar Flores (Casa Rubia) and culmiates in a four-course dinner tag-teamed by Taste America All-Star Patrick O’Connell (Inn at Little Washington in Virginia) and Local Star Stephan Pyles (Stampede 66, San Salvaje). Proceeds from the $500-a-head meal benefit the foundation along with local culinary nonprofit Café Momentum. Tickets are on sale here. (Check out some of last year's Taste America dinners here.)

The following day, cookware shop Sur La Table hosts O’Connell for a day of demos, book signings and tastings from local purveyors. Learn more and RSVP here.
