Featured chefs

Chef FreddieCHEF FREDDIE BITSOIE

Chef Freddie (Diné) is the owner of FJBits Concepts, a firm that specializes in Native American foodways. In addition to being considered one of the leading Native food educators in the country, he is also the former Executive Chef of The Mitsitam Native Foods Café, and his first cookbook, New Native Kitchens, is a 2021 best-seller. Originally a student of anthropology and archeology, Chef Bitsoie was drawn to food during an archeology course when studying the people from Chaco Canyon and what they ate. Freddie’s realistic (and delicious!) perspective is that it is better to center on indigenous ingredients instead of ever-evolving food trends.

 

chef bradleyCHEF BRADLEY DRY

Chef Bradley (Cherokee) has been a professional chef for twelve years, cooking traditional Cherokee dishes from healthy, local ingredients. Growing up in Oklahoma and based in Tulsa, his family inspired him to cook, as it was their tradition to cook together with everyone helping, under the guidance of his grandmother – which is where he learned most of what he knows about navigating a kitchen! Bradley’s goal is to bring happiness and community to those who enjoy his heartfelt food – and he specializes in traveling to prepare food for special events and people, including PowWows, Folklorama and the cast and crew of Reservation Dogs. Ultimately Bradley hopes to one day own his own restaurant, which he will name Elisi, the Cherokee word for grandmother.

 

chef andrea murdochCHEF ANDREA MURDOCH

Chef Andrea (Andean Native; Caracas, Venezuela) is the owner of Four Directions Cuisine, which is founded on four main pillars: sourcing locally, sourcing Indigenously, education and community work. Murdoch is using food to trace her own culture while educating the public about the expansive world of Indigenous food systems. After being classically trained as a pastry chef at The Culinary Institute of America, Murdoch started exploring Indigenous flavors and origins which she shares through cultural conversations in the form of food.

 

chef benCHEF BEN JACOBS

Chef Ben (Osage Nation) is a nationally renowned chef and the co-founder of Tocabe, An American Indian Eatery, now with two restaurant locations and a food truck in Denver, making it the country’s largest Native American restaurant chain.
