This drummer turned Chef started his culinary career in 1991 after he found himself hungry trying to make it in a full time Rock & Roll band. Chef Scott Berg at Vincent’s Market in Birmingham, Alabama thought that he would make a good cook from the things he talked about, and the passion for cooking shared by his entire family. The Gourmet Grocery store, with its large kitchen and bakery would provide the perfect learning environment for this newcomer to the industry. After spending the next several years in all areas of the operation and working with some of the best young Chef’s in the area, he was given the chance to go and open 22 Vincent’s Markets and Southern Kitchens throughout the southeast, provide all food service for The Bruno’s Memorial Classic Senior PGA event, held at Grey Stone in Birmingham, and Olympic Soccer in Birmingham in 1996.
Then, in 2000, Northwest Arkansas came calling. The Market at Pinnacle was looking for a Sous Chef and brought him to the area and he quickly became a local favorite. After 5 great years, The Blessings Golf Club offered the Executive Chef/F&B Director position. This, without a doubt was the single, greatest learning experience of this Chef’s career. Mr. Tyson made him a better leader and Chef.
