Living the Good Life

Stephan Pyles has the kind of success story that everyone enjoys hearing about. An internationally acclaimed chef at the top of his game, Stephan Pyles sold his interest in Star Canyon and AquaKnox to Carlson Restaurants WorldWide in 1998, and within two years opened Star Canyons in Las Vegas at the Venetian Hotel and Resort for the new owners. This transaction afforded Stephan the lifestyle that comes with such success. Traveling the world as a writer, consultant and teacher since 2000, his own life has become an artistically crafted blue print of dreams to live by and fulfilled fantasies of creative endeavors. His beautiful, custom-built home in Dallas boasts a state-of-the-art kitchen, serving as the backdrop for this photo shoot.

Often referred to as one of the founding fathers of Southwestern Cuisine, Food and Beverage International sought Stephan out for his personal touch and renowned command of flavors on the cuisine that has had such an impact on America’s taste buds.
