Chef Caroline Mayes

It's a dream of mine to open my own restaurant one day. I am a self-taught chef with a passion that keeps on giving. With the restaurant mindset, I am not just serving food, I'm serving memories. My style of coking is influenced on a worldly pallet but is not limited to that. I have experience with gluten-free and vegan cooking (and to be honest, I love a challenge). My ingredients are farm to table for optimal health and pleasure. As a hostess at heart, I want everyone to feel included when they are eating with me and that goes for my clients as well. With every dish, you will taste the passion and purpose.

Chef Cory Van Den Berghe

I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX, where Tex-Mex & Mexican food is simply a way of life.  I moved to New Orleans, LA, at the age of 20 and began my culinary career there, under the tutelage of the James Beard Award-winning chefs at Patois. I then moved to Austin where I spent 5 years at the W Hotel, and then 3 years at the AT&T Hotel & Conference Center; supporting all restaurant and banquet operations in both cases.

Having spent the formative years of my culinary life in both South-Central Texas and New Orleans, my specialties (and passions) are Mexican and Cajun cuisines; rooted in refined culinary techniques, with some playful twists!
