We love Chef Brian!

We had a blast with Chef Brian! He came to cook dinner for us one night of our friend’s bachelorette weekend in Austin and was not only a very prepared and skilled chef, but also was beyond kind and friendly. The Tex-Mex dinner he made us was incredible! He also threw in some extra items for us that were an amazing addition. Hiring Chef Brian was our group’s favorite decision of the entire trip. Next time we’re back in Austin, we will definitely plan for another fun dinner with Chef Brian. Thank you so much to Chef Brian and FF+K for a great and memorable experience 🙂

Chef Brian

I’ve had a diverse and illustrious career that has taken me on an extraordinary journey. My culinary expertise is deeply rooted in the heart of Texas, yet flavored with international influences from my culinary stints.

Having once graced the kitchen of Franklin BBQ, I honed my skills in the revered art of Texas-style barbecue, mastering the art of crafting perfectly smoked, tender meats that have garnered worldwide acclaim.

My culinary adventure further unfolded at Foreign and Domestic, where I embraced a farm-to-table philosophy, celebrating the finest locally-sourced ingredients in my culinary creations. This experience instilled in me a profound respect for seasonality and sustainability,

Continuing my culinary journey, I took on the challenge of catering to discerning palates at Facebook, where I honed my skills in crafting extraordinary menus that cater to a diverse and dynamic audience.

Venturing into the realm of luxury, I graced the kitchens of Omni Resorts and hotels, where I learned the art of delivering unparalleled culinary experiences to discerning guests from around the world. This experience instilled in me an unwavering commitment to excellence, with a focus on creating indulgent and memorable dining encounters.

With a wealth of experiences from renowned establishments, I continue on the path to master the art of blending Texas authenticity with global influences, crafting a culinary style that is as diverse and intriguing as the journey that shaped me. MY dishes tell a story of passion, innovation, and the pursuit of perfection, captivating the senses and leaving a lasting impression on every palate they touch.
