About Me

Coming from a farm family in rural Kansas, scratch cooking and family table memories were a part of every day life. Days and nights spent watching my Mother and Aunt put so much hard work into our meals allowed me to gain an unparalleled experience as well as hone my intuition. Combine those with passion and talent and the sky is the limit! This is not only how I approach cooking, but life in general.
After receiving a degree in Communications from Kansas State University, I quickly began to realize my innate desire to create taking over! Shortly after moving to Colorado in 2009 I enrolled in culinary school and haven’t looked back since. After graduating from Cook Street School of Culinary Arts I spent several years working for acclaimed restaurants and Chefs in the Denver and Boulder areas of Colorado which is where I was so thankfully introduced to the “Farm to Table” philosophy. As cliché as that sounds, I truly believe this philosophy embodies not only the utmost respect for your ingredients, but also for your health and the agricultural community.
Having lost my job as an Executive Chef in the city of Chicago due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic I am happy to continue providing people with outstanding service through private dining experiences. I enjoy making people happy and joining them in creating colorful memories of life through food!
Please allow me the opportunity to bring your special event to life for you and your loved ones! Together we can create a special occasion that I promise you will want to experience again and again!

  • Chef Bryan was fantastic. Brought all of the food and utensils, made a great private dinner and cleaned up afterwards. We spent most of the time chatting with him, good stories and conversation as we ate. Meal was delicious. If you are looking for a private dinner for a special event, definitely give him a shot.

  • Bryan made our Valentine’s dinner truly unforgettable. We both love fine dining and in the midst of COVID, were looking for that experience but in our home. The meal was delicious - the food and presentation were impressive - and Bryan was a pleasure to work with. We will certainly reach out to him again for our next special occasion.

  • I am not sure if I have the right words to describe my AMAZING experience. I often do not leave reviews but I had to in this case. Chef Bryan worked with me on a special menu for my 10yr Anniversary. I shared some ideas and Chef was able to bring my vision to light. He was beyond professional, prompt, and personable. The plate was not only visually appealing but my mouth is still watering just thinking about it. When the opportunity presents its self I will use Chef Bryan again. But I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a outstanding experience.
