Chef Brian came to Needle Rock Kitchen + Tap with over 25 years of food & beverage experience. He is an “ingredients-driven chef” who has developed a distinctive style that he describes as “a blend of Mediterranean cuisine (Spain/Italy) and heavy French techniques” in his dishes. A native of Phoenix, Chef Brian’s love affair with food dates back to his early childhood years working in the kitchen with his mom, and his time in his high school C-Cap culinary arts training program that ignited his passion for cooking. He won a scholarship to attend the legendary California Culinary Academy in San Francisco where he realized the superiority in taste of ingredients picked fresh from the garden. Brian appeared on Food Network’s “Beat Bobby Flay” and competed against Iron Chef Bobby Flay where Brian did, in fact, beat Bobby Flay!
