I'm going to keep this short because literature is fun but eating is better.
Georgia born, Chicago trained, and now back south doing what I love, cooking.
Backing up 9 years ago I decided to dive into the professional world of chefs. I graduated form the Art Institute of Atlanta in 2010 then moved to Chicago the following year to continue my quest. I've worked in a range of places, form hotels to micro gastro pubs, from breweries to Michelin stars. I feel like I got a great taste of the brick and mortar restaurant scene. Then I decided to go down a different route. I was tired, maybe even a little bored with restaurants. They seemed to be all the same.
So I started my own "underground dinning." Each night I'd invite strangers into my home to serve them a multi course tasting menu. I cooked by myself no one to answer to besides the six guests, which gave me a chance to try out new ideas and to truly cook what I wanted. The menu would change constantly and the guest appreciated all the thought that went into each menu. I'd pick up ideas for dishes along my travels; I'd get inspiration from other chefs and I'd listen to what my new dinner guests had to say. It was a wonderful time. But as the saying goes; 2020.
I had to close my doors and with everything going on in Chicago, it didn't feel like the right place for me to be anymore. So my girlfriend (Samantha Demichael) and I drove south to Georgia to start new roots.
