Chef Charlie Reed wows guests at Henry’s Place on a regular basis with handmade pastas, roasted meats, and beautifully delicate vegetables, but did you know that he has a passion for sugar work, as well?
In an effort to better understand the needs of his clients, Chef Reed recently signed on with the American Culinary Federation to compete for 2 full years of the Regional Culinary Competition. He will proudly be representing himself, his team, and his beloved restaurant in Nashville on March 24th for the first of the competitions, where he will compete in 2 culinary categories: “Savory Platter” and “Centerpiece Sugar”. His creative idea for the sugar work he will be entering is called “Bonsai Sugar”. The showpiece is displayed in the photograph, and parts of what will be entered for competition is currently on display in the restaurant.
Chef Reed has participated in national culinary competitions for 31 years, and his staff has collectively been awarded 54 culinary medals in a myriad of categories.
Feel free to drop by Henry’s Place and wish Chef Charlie luck before he leaves! You can see some of the sugar work that is heading to Nashville and they will be offering specials based on his savory entries for the next week.
Good luck, Chef! Make us proud. J
