RIDGELAND, Miss. – Chef Simon Brown, Chef de Cuisine of Seafood R'evolution, was named “Culinary Innovator” this year by Certified Angus Beef® during their convention in Maui, Hawaii, from September 26th-28th A native of Dundee, Scotland, Chef Brown moved to the United States in 2011 and was recruited by Chefs John Folse and Rick Tramonto in 2014. He was named executive sous chef in 2015, then took the helm as Chef de Cuisine of Seafood R’evolution in March 2017.
As a child growing up in Scotland, his grandparents taught him to use every single cut of meat, a lesson remembered as he created his award-winning dish – a braised beef cut that offers guests the flavor and appeal of steak.
“I used a Certified Angus Beef® three-bone rib, which I hand cut, trimmed and rolled to look like a tomahawk steak,” Brown said. “Then, I slow-cooked it in my special Guinness® sauce.” Brown’s “Short Rib Tomahawk” will be available on Seafood R’evolution’s menu beginning in October.
“What an accomplishment,” said Chef John Folse, managing partner and executive chef of Seafood R’evolution. “Simon’s dish is unbelievably delicious and especially perfect for this time of year. We are so proud of him!”
