by Jeff Shaw

DALLAS — Buckner Retirement Services has selected chef Stephan Pyles as chief culinary advisor for its senior living communities in Texas.

The James Beard Award-winning chef from Texas will help enhance the culinary experiences at Buckner Villas in Austin, Calder Woods in Beaumont, Parkway Place in Houston, and Buckner Westminster Place in Longview, in addition to his established advisory role with Ventana by Buckner in Dallas.

Buckner previously collaborated with Pyles to craft a new type of dining experience for seniors ahead of the opening of Ventana by Buckner in October 2019. The collaboration led to the new expanded role.

Pyles will work with the communities’ culinary teams to expand their menus with seasonal, local and fresh touches selected by Pyles. The menus will also include an array of signature dishes popular at many of Pyles’ 23 restaurants over the past 32 years.
