Meet Our New Chef!

Please join us in welcoming our new Executive Chef, Russell Battley to our family.
Hailing from Cajun Country (New Roads, Louisiana), Chef Russell worked as Sous Chef for various restaurants, country clubs, and hospitals in both Louisiana and Texas. As the head chef for a locally owned gourmet fresh market grocery store, he expanded his repertoire until he came to us in 2011. Russell's goal is simple: " To ensure that our many clients and their guests are wowed by the quality and consistency of the food and service we provide. My goal is achieved and I feel fulfilled from such positive feedback that we receive."

Get to know Chef Russell with a little Q&A.
