To cook in the kitchen of a legend is many a chef's dream...

Follow this "day in the life" story of what it's like to be invited to host a dinner at The James Beard House in New York City with Executive Chef James Holmes of Olivia Restaurant in Austin, Texas.

Chef Holmes brings his Austin-style, farm-to-table, nose-to-tail eating to James Beard's kitchen to show us "Yankees" how Texans like to eat. It's an experience he and his staff couldn't be more proud of - the one goal that means the most...the invitation of a lifetime.
