We pride ourselves on respect for the ingredient and where it came from. Locally sourced seasonal ingredients are a way of cooking and a way of life.

Chef Jen Williams, an eighth generation Texan, orchestrates eclectic, seasonal menus, showcasing local ingredients and a veggie or two from her own garden. With pride for the ingredient and where it comes from, Jen has formed close-working relationships with local farmers and purveyors. You can often catch her in a field of okra or at the Cowtown Farmers Market chatting up farmers and patrons about the newest crop and how to cook up seasonal offerings. Classic dishes and preparations with a twist are her specialty, with plenty of plant-based and vegan-friendly options to satisfy all.


With 15+ years professional cooking experience, Jen’s culinary path has taken her through the Austin Hill Country to the fine dining scene of Chicago, to top kitchens in DFW. Opening restaurants and teaching the professional standards of hospitality are passions. Using her craft-honed skills, Jen loves to pass along “delicious knowledge” to career and home cooks alike.

“I like a cook who smiles out loud when he tastes his own work.”
