Ran into Royal Chef Darren McGrady, who was holding court at Debbie and John Tolleson’s Wednesday night for the Center for BrainHealth gathering.
Lucky were those who ventured into the kitchen, where Darren was having a jolly good time with the staff laughing as he whipped out delicious items that got gobbled up the moment they were put before the guests. But more about the evening later.
For anyone who would like to have a Chef Darren experience, it can happen in a big way. He will provide a four-course royal feast for 10 and so much more, like wine pairings and butler service. That’s what the winner of the Fashion Stars for a Cause raffle benefiting the Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas will get. But time is getting tighter than a size 6 Jimmy Choo on a size-9 foot. The drawing is Thursday, May 21, at Belk.
And speaking of Belk, the retailer has included a $5,000 gift card as part of the raffle package. After all, such a dinner demands a new outfit, shoes and “accessories.”
