After Chef Dawn Burrell traveled the world representing herself and country in the sport of Track and Field, she returned home with a strong desire to become a chef. She brought back with her a passion to mingle flavors from her travels with the comforts of home using fresh, seasonal ingredients as the foundation. The results are dishes that take the taste buds on a culinary exploration of the new yet familiar- Global comfort food.
Being tapped into the subculture of seasonality and sourcing locally is key to Chef Dawn’s concept. You’ll often find her at farmers' market as a vendor and/or sourcing ingredients, or just hanging out feeling the love and supporting the community. With a culinary ideal that gives a slight nod toward “nose to tail” cooking ( or “leaf to root” for vegetarians), she creates dishes that delight the senses utilizing uncommonly used “bits” of the ingredients in inspiring ways. Most recently Dawn worked as sous chef at for James Beard nominee, Monica Pope, in her restaurant in mid-town Houston. You can currently find her collaborating with other area chef for awesome pop-up dinners, at farmers markets and other soon to be revealed projects. Please contact her for all you catering needs or for cooking classes!
