“The Florida Panhandle is very much my home, and I consider what I do to be driven by what the people do here. Bay County’s food scene is derived very much from the low country of the Carolinas and the deltas & bayous of Mississippi and Louisiana. We have an abundance of resources that surround us here in the panhandle from world class seafood to some great local farms in our north parts. I take everything I can from these places and prepare it so that you as the dinner can taste the quality, while also giving you backstory on the people who behind the scenes make it really work.”
Chef Chris is married to his wife Brittany and they have two children (Vivianne and Wrangler).
