Danyele McPherson may weigh 80 pounds. She is a tiny pistol of a chef. If you’ve seen her in action, red hair swirling around her face in front of the wood oven at Stephan Pyles, you know what I mean. She’s been a culinary force behind Pyles’ Fuego, the mini 4-seat restaurant that uses scientific techniques applied to cooking.
Today, it was announced that Danyele will be a sous chef and a culinary force behind one of the hardest working men in ChefBiz, Brian Luscher of The Grape. Not to be confused with The Brad, The Grape is one of Dallas’ finest restaurants. In typical press release speak, Luscher says, “I am super excited to have Danyele in The Grape kitchen as a leader of our culinary team. She is a great asset and we look forward to seeing her influences reflected on The Grape menu.” Good for you Luscher, like you needed another great asset at The Grape.
