MEET THE CHEF:
Brandy Barnes was raised in Fayetteville and graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2011 with a degree in anthropology and religious studies. After earning her degree, she took off to travel across the country and the world over the next 10 years. During this time she fell in love with cooking and eventually managed her own kitchen space in China before moving back to the United States and becoming head chef of some noteworthy restaurants in Colorado. It was during this time that her love for fermented foods, traditional Chinese cuisine, perfectly cooked pasta and cheese began to really take hold.
Brandy loves the ever evolving nature of food. She is constantly looking for the next great flavor combination and believes that our taste buds can take us on great adventures, both familiar and exotic. When she isn't at work, you can find her whipping up a fun meal at home for her amazing friends, outside frolicking in the woods or playing music.
