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!
