Imagine a gathering of the world's superheroes in one location--Superman, Batman, Captain America, Wolverine, The Hulk, Wonder Woman and Spiderman--all in the name of charity. But instead of spandex, these heroes wear white aprons and Crocs, and instead of superpowers, they all wield super-sharp knives. We're talking about chefs here, and some of the most talented in the country. They've all come together to raise money for Share Our Strength's A Tasteful Pursuit, an organization and project that strive to end childhood hunger in America by the year 2015. Each superstar chef will prepare one plate in a phenomenal multi-course menu paired with wine. The participants include Stephan Pyles of Stephan Pyles and Samar by Stephan Pyles; Matt Teiichi Sakurai of Tei-An; R.J. Cooper III, formerly of Vidalia in Washington, DC; Randall Copeland and Nathan Tate of Ava Restaurant in Rockwall; and others. You, too, can help make a difference in the world by joining the cause at Stephan Pyles (1807 Ross Ave.) on Sunday. A cocktail hour begins at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m. Tickets are $175 per person. Make a reservation by calling 888-273-6141 or visit http://join.strength.org/atp_dallas.
