Chef Bria Forte and NCRLA Chef Showdown Head Pastry Chef Winner Jamie Turner Talk Shop
We snapped this picture in our kitchen with Chef Bria Forte on the left and Chef Jamie Turner on the right. The two are talking about menus and trading secrets as we prepare for Valentine’s Day at Midtown Grille. These are two of the very best pastry chefs in the business and we are excited to have them collaborating to bring you one-of-a-kind desserts.
A Little More About Chef Jamie Turner
Having Chef Jamie Turner visit us at Midtown Grille is exciting for many reasons. Chef Jamie was recently named NCRLA Pastry Chef of the Year for 2019 at the NCRLA Chef Showdown. In November 2019, The Asbury in Charlotte named Jamie head pastry chef. The Asbury happens to be one of our sister restaurants that is part of Summit Hospitality Group. If you are in Charlotte, be sure to check it out! Lastly, at the start of 2020, Chef Jamie got a call from the production company behind Oprah Winfrey’s 2020 Vision Tour. They wanted her to create a dessert in partnership with Weight Watchers. Chef Jamie created a chocolate hazelnut pavlova nouveau with raspberry coulis. In order to earn the “WW” logo she gave it a healthy makeover that includes avocado, edible flowers, and more. It is only eight Weight Watchers points. Learn more at CharlotteMagazine.com.
