Because of the diverse nature of the many different restaurants and chefs Brian Henry has worked under he is highly proficient at a wide range of cuisines.

Brian’s cooking is seasonal, inventive and smart, but in no way unapproachable or fussy. When he is coaxed out of the kitchen and starts talking about food, his passion and knowledge are instantly recognizable.

"Chef Brian Henry cooked a series of delicious appetizers for us as we sat around a table in the kitchen". Thanks

Tony Aspler, Wine writer

“Chef Brian Henry puts one hundred percent of his energy into going all the way.”

Gastronomically yours,

T’was a Night in the Kitchen

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through’ the kitchen
Not a chef was stirring, not even washing the dishes
The pots were all cleaned and put back on the shelf
Knowing tomorrow it would be back to work for this elf;
Our company had long ago gone to sleep,
While the pot of turkey bones silently did steep.
Removing my tunic and old chef’s hat
I had decided to partake in a stiff nightcap
When out in the kitchen the smoke alarm rang
I ran back to the galley and spouted some slang
I had rendered our festive dinner to ash,
And proceeded to quietly take it out to the trash
While back in the house I poured some Chablis
And ended up on the couch to watch some TV.
When, what to my bloodshot eyes should appear,
But a dude on the network cooking with cheer
He was straining a sauce with a ladle and colander
Later it mentioned that his name was something Oliver
Soon my eyes were drooping and I began to nod,
As my mind was dreaming now immersed in egg nog.
Back in the kitchen I found myself looking
As this bloke named Oliver was standing there cooking
He was calling out names of chefs, who arrived,
Through my exhaust fan looking rather surprised.
Now! Ramsey now! Batali, now! Lagasse and Flay
“On! De Laurentiis, on! Pepin, on! Puck and Ray
They were dressed in chef whites and ready to cook
I interrupted them and asked them to sign their latest cook book.
The pots and pans they began to rattle
As these chefs ironically prepared to do battle

Ramsey started off with a furious expletive Which is why I believe he is a distant blood relative

Ramsey started off with a furious expletive
Which is why I believe he is a distant blood relative

Ramsey started off with a furious expletive
Which is why I believe he is a distant blood relative
Batali somewhat sweaty with red hair and round belly
Shook when he laughed, like a slab of pork belly
Laggasse was shucking a pail full of clams
His eyes how they twinkled! When he shouted out BAM!
Flay with a free-range turkey flung over his back,
Looked like a cook from not just any barbecue shack.
De Laurentiis pulled out her knives which she honed
While this everyday personality looked already at home.
Pepin the French chef worked rather free and wild
And that’s okay with me because I too lament for Julia Child
Puck and Ray the ever famed culinary tycoons
Were smiling and working on a curried crab Rangoon
It was obvious now that our Christmas dinner would not be traditional
As it seemed this merry feast would border on being biblical.
With a wink of their eyes and a twist of the pepper mill
I knew that Christmas dinner would not see us dining on krill.
With a dash of caraway and a dash of dill, I sliced up the fillet
And fired up the chaffing dishes, Christmas dinner this year would be buffet.
What I was to do next I was no longer sure
I was just thankful that we would not dine on manure
All chefs on hand were given thanks and gingerbread
As they returned where they came from I went straight to bed
With the bread in the bread maker using fresh baker’s yeast
I wish Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good feast!

 

Merry Christmas from all of us in the kitchen!
