Farm Table Dinner with Chef Ryan Williams
Sat, September 25 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm$195.00
We are so excited to welcome another member of the Rye team to Green Dirt this year – Executive Chef Ryan Williams! As a Kansas City native, he grew up working at restaurants in high school and quickly moved back to the kitchen to begin cooking. After high school Ryan went to JCCC and graduated from the Culinary program while doing his apprenticeship at Mission Hills Country Club under Chef Eugene Deming. Upon completing the Culinary program Ryan moved up to Sous Chef at the club for the next two years. After leaving Mission Hills he worked at a few of Kansas Cities smaller restaurants including Starker’s Reserve under Chef John McClure. While working at Starker’s Ryan began staging for Colby and Megan Garrelts at their James Beard Award Winning restaurant Bluestem. He quickly decided that is where he wanted to work and started as a line cook in 2009. In 2010 Ryan moved up to the role of Sous Chef and worked alongside Chef De Cuisine Joe West. When the Garrelts were ready to open their next venture Rye in December of 2012 Ryan quickly signed on as the Executive Sous Chef working with Executive Chef John Brogan to open and shape the now long running local focused restaurant. In the summer of 2017 Ryan took over as Executive Chef of Rye Leawood and has been running food operations there with the Garrelts ever since.
Our Farm Table Dinners are unique, one of a kind, dinners that reflect the bounty of the season. Because the meals rely on ingredients that are sourced from what is fresh and seasonally available, the menus are not created until 1-2 weeks prior to the event.
*Green Dirt Farm dinners are one of a kind meals created around products made on our farm, (artisan cheese and humanely raised lamb meat) as well as other local seasonal small farm products. Because of our unique focus on specific ingredients for each menu, we cannot guarantee menu adjustments or exceptions for dietary restrictions. Requests or questions regarding dietary restrictions must be emailed and approved prior to purchase.*
