If you watch as much Food Network as I do, you might recall this young chef from last season…
Chef Brad Sorenson’s latest endeavor is a restaurant with a casual vibe due to open later this summer. At the Austin F00d & Wine festival he was handing out samples of chicken molé, which was delicious, on locally made bean chips from Beanitos. The chips are made with non-GMO ingredients, namely bean flour. Something better for your body that actually tastes good! It didn’t hurt to have a savory topper made by a local celebrity chef.
Sorry ladies, Brad is spoken for. His girlfriend was also at the festival helping greet patrons milling around the tasting tents.
On working together: both agreed that working at the same restaurant would not be the best idea. Probably even truer when you have to slave in a hot kitchen for hours on end, you don’t want to take that stress into a relationship.
Chef Sorenson is happy to return to Austin and excited to open his restaurant in August.
