3 Reasons to Travel with Gavin Kaysen
A two-time James Beard Award winner, Gavin is owner and head chef at Minneapolis' Spoon and Stable, recognized by Food & Wine as one of the '40 Most Important Restaurants in the Past 40 Years'. Gavin is a dynamic force of nature that lives to combine the elegance of French cuisine with seasonal Midwest comfort food. Gavin’s fiery spirit makes him a fierce competitor: he's appeared on 'Chopped' and 'The Next Iron Chef' and at France's prestigious Bocuse d'Or biennial world-chef championship.
He takes risks
Not many folks would leave a three-star Michelin restaurant to open their own. Gavin made the move in 2014 from NYC's acclaimed Café Boulud to Spoon and Stable. His reward? A 2018 James Beard Award for Best Chef.
He’s always looking ahead
No matter how many awards Gavin earns, he’s always looking for the next ingredient, the next food trend, the next big city. “I’m interested in what comes next? How do we stay inspired and interested and keep caring?”
