"As a self-taught chef, I'm thrilled to witness the growth in entrepreneurial food purveyors sprouting up acoss the country and the passion for crafting speciality products focused on organic and locally-sourced ingredients. At my restaurants, The Hudson House, The Tripel, and Playa Provisions we're dedicated to utilizing every product to its fullest ability - another aspect of the artisanal movement that I connect with."

Chef Williamson was our Featured Chef in the month of June where she created dishes in her flagship contemporary-American cuisine. See below + prepare to drool.  Click on the photo to watch Chef Williamson preview how to make the dish!
