Austin American-Statesman - - FOOD MATTERS - — Mike Sut­ter

Cam­den Stuerzen­berger has taken over as ex­ec­u­tive chef at Bess Bistro on Pecan, the French and Ca­jun-in­flu­enced res­tau­rant owned by ac­tress San­dra Bul­lock.

He re­places Mizael Saucedo, who left in April. Stuerzen­berger has been the ex­ec­u­tive chef for an­other of Bul­lock’s en­ter­prises, Wal­ton’s Fancy and Sta­ple. He’ll con­tinue in that role at Wal­ton’s as well. He trained at the Texas Culi­nary Academy (now Le Cor­don Bleu) and has worked at the Hy­att Lost Pines Re­sort and the Oa­sis. Stuerzen­berger will keep Bess stan­dards such as Cre­ole Shrimp Bess and smoked ba­con mus­sels and add more seafood choices, a spokesper­son said. He’ll be as­sisted by sous-chef Janelle Reynolds. They’ll draw from the tal­ents of Wal­ton’s pas­try chef Sandi Rein­lie, who’ll be craft­ing Bess’s dessert menu, and by Wal­ton’s baker Dawn Paul­son, who’ll con­tinue bak­ing the breads served at Bess (500 W. Sixth St. 477-2377, www.bess­bistro.com).
