Cooking with Dad: Mark Cuban, Chris Ryan, Eric Nystrom and More Share Their Memories

We tracked down a few locals, and asked them about their dad's cooking choices and what they remember the most about breaking bread with the family. Here's who shared their food memories of cooking with Dad with us:

Mark Cuban: Savior of the Greenville St. Patrick's Day Parade and owner of the Dallas Mavericks, among many other things.

Chris Ryan: KEGL's program director and mid-day host.

Eric Nystrom: Dallas Stars' left wing.

Mark Hayes: Co-anchor of NBC 5 Today from 5 to 7 a.m.

Jody Denton: Executive Research Chef for Frito Lay North America's Flavor Kitchen, which is one of the company's key flavor development centers. We can only imagine the things this man has tasted.

Chef Kent Rathbun: Executive Chef and owner of Abacus, Jasper's, Shinsei, KB's and Rathbun's Blue Plate Special.

Did your dad cook? If so, what was his best dish?

Cuban: Yes, my dad made hot dogs and salads. The salads were HUGE with every leftover we had in them. He used his own special salad dressing concoction that was an acquired taste.
