Head Chef Christopher Wilson

Christopher Wilson defines what it means to be a modern, southern chef. He’s talented, forward-thinking, and passionate about working with local farms to bring exceptional flavors to taste buds across Central Texas. He’s helping to redefine lunch with Sifted. He’s making food with an Austin flare – conscientious, authentic, and experiential.

Says Wilson, “Austin is home. Being situated right in the heart of Texas provides so much possibility and bounty. Farms, ranches, dairies, you name it. From a culinary perspective, it’s spectacular. There are so many different cuisines and visions and experiences to be had. You can’t get bored eating in Austin.”

The Texas talent, who has lived in Austin for more than 30 years, shares some of his favorite things about his hometown and why he’s passionate about crafting stories through cuisine.

We asked him why he loves the art and science of crafting delicious food? He said, “a meal can be so much more than just a ‘chore’ or plain old sustenance. Providing a memorable, sensual experience through food can appeal to people on so many different levels. It’s a responsibility and an honor to feed people from your soul.”
