Featuring Special Guest: Chef Chris Williams

 

 

Chris Williams was always destined to be a chef; he simply didn’t know it yet. Drawn to study food from a young age, he attended Le Cordon Blue in Austin, Texas and soon began traveling around the world working in eateries in Lithuania, England, the U.S., and all points in between. His insatiable hunger to learn everything about world cuisine unexpectedly led him back to his own family tree. Chef Williams had heard bits and pieces about his great-grandmother, Lucille Bishop Smith, but it wasn’t until Williams began developing his own restaurant concept that he discovered a family history steeped in mouthwatering Southern cuisine.

After opening Lucille’s in August 2012, Chef Chris — who is classically trained in Southern, French, Mediterranean, West Indian and East African cuisine — has spread his culinary wings within and beyond the restaurant. In May 2015, Chef Williams was named the lone culinary cultural ambassador for the USA during a 25-day tour of The Balkans - Slovenia, Croatia, Albania and Serbia. The tour featured food lectures, hospitality conferences, and of course, cooking demos led by Chef Williams. The Zagreb's Contemporary Arts Museum even recreated Lucille's for its three-day Route 66 festival. He repeated his stint as the region’s culinary ambassador again in 2018, followed by another food diplomacy tour to Ukraine in June 2019. Chef Williams is also a member of the Southern Food Ways Alliance, an organization that documents, studies, and explores the diverse food cultures of the changing American South.
