Guest Chef – Chris Meyerly

Chef Chris Meyerly

Chris Myerly is currently the Chef de Cuisine at Broders’ Pasta Bar in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He has worked, for the last 12 years, at some of the Twin Cities most popular restaurants and you can see, in each of his creations, how well he has honed his skills. Chris also happens to have three rescue dogs, so you know the Cava, Bouzy & Brilla approve of this message.

He values local product as well as seasonal produce and always seems to come up with the most brilliant flavor combinations. Everything from grilled peaches and burrata on the menu in the summer to a fresh, bright winter citrus & beet salad in the deep Minnesota winter. He always seems to take an old favorite and make it brand new again, which I think speaks volumes for his level of creativity and culinary talent. Pasta may be the main ingredient at Broders, but for Tres Sabores, he’s come up with a brilliant recipe that includes Julie’s famous BBQ spice rub and pairs beautifully with our Petite Sirah.
