Pearland, TX – On December 20, 2011, Executive Chef Ronnie Killen of Killen’s Steakhouse in Pearland will add yet another impressive distinction to his resume of credentials: a guest chef performance at the renowned James Beard House in New York City. Killen, a Pearland native, will partner with Master Sommelier Guy Stout of Glazer’s Distributing in presenting a five-course “Steakhouse Holiday” dinner highlighting Texas Gulf Coast foods.

Widely respected as the “Carnegie Hall of Cooking,” the James Beard House is the former home of the man who paved the way for many of today’s high profile chefs and is considered by many to be the father of gastronomy. Today, the James Beard House offers its members the opportunity to enjoy private dinners planned and prepared by some of the country’s leading chefs.

“It’s an incredible opportunity to cook at the Beard house, it’s going to be fun” says Killen, who graduated top of his class from London’s prestigious Le Cordon Bleu and went on to cook at top restaurants throughout the U.S. before returning to his hometown to open his own modern steakhouse. “I’m honored and hopeful that the recognition will draw more people to Houston to explore what our city has to offer from a culinary perspective.” Killen’s sous-vide smoked Blackmore Ranch short ribs, smoked beef tenderloin with onion-bing marmalade, and fried jalapeños with house-cured ham and Blue Heron goat cheese, along with his famed crème brûlée bread pudding are just a sampling of items appearing on the night’s menu.

Dinner will begin with a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception at 7 pm, followed by a five-course chef’s tasting menu. For more information or reservations call 212-627-2308 or for online reservations visit www.jamesbeard.org. Tickets are $130 for members of the James Beard Foundation or $170 per person for the general public.

For those unable to attend the New York City event, Killen will be replicating his James Beard menu at Killen’s Steakhouse on January 15, 2012 at 6 pm. Price is $150 per person. For reservations, call 281-485-0844. For more information regarding Killen’s visit www.killenssteakhouse.com or www.facebook.com/killenssteakhouse.
