The genius in Evan's Kitchen is award-winning Chef Evan Elsberry with the assistance of chefs Jessie Blakeway, Tom Harmon, and Marvin Cornish. Several members of Evan's extended family also work at this family restaurant. Chef Evan is known in East Sacramento for his fabulous Wine Dinners, his volunteer efforts in local fund-raisers, and his special meal-events such as his Pumpkin Carving buffet and the popular Gingerbread House-building dinner. Many Sacramentans know him also from his frequent appearances on local television as featured chef and his California State Fair competitions. After taking second place at the 2003 California State Fair Professional Chef Challenge, Chef Evan moved up to first place in 2004. The judges were impressed with both the Wine Merchant Steak that was awarded first place in the preliminary, and the Filet Mignon that won the final round. Evan placed in the final round again in 2005 and placed second in his round in 2006. Check our recipe page for these recipes and Evan's signature lamb chops and delicious seafood dish that won awards.
