There are only a few people who truly represent the culinary scene that’s so unique to DFW.

Then again, Blythe Beck cooks and walks to her own beat. Which makes her a perfect contributor to Newsfix with her weekly segment, “Spice of Blythe”. It’s her take on how to get the most of your kitchen.

Blythe has been part of the local restaurant scene for many years, with stops at some of the area’s most well-known places to get really good food.

But nothing compares to what she calls her “baby”. Chef Beck serves her own style of what she calls swanky southern food at Pink Magnolia in Dallas’ Bishop Arts District.

Swanky means a lot of beer, butter and booze!

Blythe is made for talking about food in front of a camera. You may have seen her on The Naughty Kitchen with Blythe Beck which aired on the Oxygen network.

You can catch “Spice of Blythe” each Tuesday on NewsFix, and see other segments at cw33.com/spiceofblythe
