Welcome to our home!
My name is Patrick Murphy and food is my life and my passion. I was given an incredible opportunity to learn under world-renowned chefs at the Culinary Institute at Johnson and Wales University.
I have since worked at country clubs and prestigious restaurants as both sous chefs and executive chefs. I have also worked at The Masters golf tournament in Augusta, Georgia.
Through my journey, I have grown as an individual and as a chef. My passion and desire to be creative with my food and its presentation pushes me to pursue my artistic side. My desire is to create and present beautiful dishes that are outside the scope of typical restaurant fare. The satisfaction I feel from witnessing people enjoy my food creations drives my passion. I am excited to share my love for food and its presentation with you!
Gerry Sizemore grew up on the coast of Florida, in a small beach town. When he wasn’t on the water, he spent his summers in Siler City, North Carolina helping his grandparents tend to their homegrown vegetables and prepare supper with his grandmother, Barbara. It was in her kitchen that Sizemore found his love for cooking and southern cuisine.
Sizemore moved to Charlotte, NC to attend culinary school at Johnson and Wales, and worked for Charlotte Country Club after graduation. When he moved back to Florida, he became the Sous Chef at Haven in Tampa where he worked alongside James Beard nominee Chad Johnson and the globally acclaimed Bern’s Steakhouse restaurant group.
Gerry is thrilled to have been called back to North Carolina and take his talents to Heirloom. If you don’t catch him jogging along the greenway, or at the farmers market, you’ll definitely be able to find him in our kitchen utilizing all of the delicious food North Carolina has to offer.
