Welcome Iverson Brownell as our Corporate Chef

July 5, 2013 § Leave a comment

Charleston Hospitality Group Corporate Chef

Charleston Hospitality Group has hired Iverson Brownell as its new corporate chef to help guide the company’s diverse collection of restaurants. Brownell has long been lauded for his versatility as a restaurateur, caterer, and health and wellness devotee. He will oversee corporate training and catering operations for the group, which includes such restaurants and properties as Eli’s Table, Toast!, Market Street Saloon, Tabbuli, Queology, Whisk Bakery and the Wreckfish.

“In Iverson, we saw someone with remarkable vision that we could entrust with our restaurant group,” said Sam Mustafa, founder of Charleston Hospitality Group. “His culinary experience and background should be a great advantage as we seek to grow our brand.”

Brownell, a Greenville, S.C., native, previously owned and operated Iverson Catering, which included business units in Charleston and Park City, Utah. He also worked for four years as the executive chef of The Viking Yurt in Park City, a restaurant accessible only by sleigh. There, he cooked in an open kitchen without electricity or running water. Media channels like The Discovery Channel, The Food Network, The Travel Channel and NBC took notice, featuring Brownell – and his inventive meals – on several segments.

Brownell, a Johnson and Wales University graduate, also has appeared on The Outdoor Life Network’s “Offshore Adventures,” and has been featured in such publications as Southern Living Cooking, Le Creuset and Charleston Magazine. During the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) chose Brownell and his team to operate the Team USA dining hall for American athletes and sponsors such as Starbucks, Nike and Anheuser Busch.

More recently, Brownell has tapped into his passion for preventive foods, developing nutrient-rich, healthy meals for private clients. He plans to introduce similar options to the menus and dishes offered by Charleston Hospitality Group.

This week at Charleston Hospitality Group

January 27, 2012 § Leave a comment

Charleston Hospitality Group has been up to a lot of good things – planning mostly, for many new things in 2012!

We are getting our new Catering division off the ground, headed up by new Executive Chef of Catering, Eric Gaffin. Formerly of New Dream Catering, Eric has plenty of experience in creating beautiful events – whether it is your “big day” or a corporate event. Stop by and “like” our new Facebook page to see some of Eric’s work. He’s created a beautiful photo album to show you just some of what he can create for you!

We are still very excited about our new dinner service at Eli’s Table. Our dinner service is off to a great start and we’re proud to offer some really great vegetarian and healthy entrees, along with some classic dishes. Watch for Chefs Steven Jankowski and Brett McKee on Lowcountry Live next Wednesday, February 1 as they present one of Eli’s Table’s most popular dinner dishes.

We are also working on upcoming events for both Market Street Saloon locations. Market Street North is planning a big Jimmy Buffett tailgating party, as well as a party on Super Bowl Sunday and both locations are working on Valentine themed parties. Sign up for the Market Street newsletter to stay on top of all upcoming events (and let’s just say, we’ve got some fun stuff in the works!)
