Local Chefs Reveal Fall Favorites


 

Dallas-Fort Worth is blessed by extraordinary culinary talent. Two of our favorite North Texas chefs are Kirstyn Brewer and Blaine Staniford. Both are featured in the brand-new fall/winter edition of Grand Vie: Luxury in Living magazine.

 GV Chefs

 

Brewer is the executive chef of Victor Tangos, a much-loved restaurant in the heart of Dallas. The young chef signed up for culinary school on a whim before falling in love with cooking and rising through the ranks in some of the most highly acclaimed kitchens in Los Angeles and Dallas, including The Bazaar by José Andrés and Hibiscus. Her playful and imaginative ideas have been satisfying customers for the past 10 years.

 

A Dallas native, Staniford is the executive chef of Grace Restaurant in downtown Fort Worth. He graduated from the Culinary Institute of America at the young age of 19 before studying under award-winning chefs in New York, San Francisco and Dallas. In August 2015, Staniford was invited to cook at the renowned James Beard House where he wowed diners with his inventive takes on American classics.

 

In the new fall/winter edition of Grand Vie: Luxury in Living, these two local chefs share their favorite way to add a dose of delicious luxury to your next game-watching party with fall-inspired mouth-watering appetizers.
