Mother's Day's Brunch
Chef Brandt Evans of Pura Vida, is one of Ohio’s top chefs. He has received numerous accolades since 2002 following the opening of his first restaurant, Blue Canyon Kitchen and Tavern in Twinsburg, Ohio.
His love for the culinary arts began at age 16, as he entered into his first job at Starboard Tack. He went on to train at the Culinary Institute of America and with a fresh diploma tackled the stove at Charlie Palmer’s Manhattan restaurant, “Alva”. There he perfected his technique and waited for the perfect opportunity to break free from convention.
Evans grew up near the Barlow Farm. He was one of the boys that Don hired for farm chores when extra hands were needed.
