Private Chef In Birmingham

Chef Shawn Strand

Get to know me better

An eternal curiosity about all things edible.

I am passionate about celebrating and fusing local flavors and cooking methods with a unique, modern approach. I believe that a dish should not be over-complicated - by choosing the highest quality ingredients, the natural flavors and textures burst through.

Where possible, I grow, forage, and catch my own ingredients, or source from farm-to-fork.

Having discovered the stove at an early age in the kitchens of my Italian neighbors in Philadelphia, I saw how food brings people together. Being a good chef comes from your heart, and I have a genuine passion for creating great guest experiences. Together with my wife, I am co-owner of The Butchery in Anguilla - a fine meat and provisioning store operating out of one of the island's oldest buildings.
