Chef Alex Belew’s earliest childhood memories revolve around food. He grew up in the South, where food is the heart of the home. Many weekends were spent in his grandmother’s kitchen in Rover, Tn, helping her make buttermilk biscuits and boiled custard served in Mason Jars.

His culinary fundamentals were built at The Art Institute of Tennessee in Nashville, where he graduated with Honors with a Culinary Arts degree. Afterwards, Belew spent years learning, self-teaching, and working in some of the top kitchens in Nashville, including Husk by Sean Brock. Intrigued by creating an in-home dining experience to rival in-restaurant dining, Alex Belew Catering was established in 2007.

Belew stepped away from the commercial kitchen in 2012 to instruct high school students in Middle Tennessee, teaching knife skills, meat cutting, molecular gastronomy (food science), and nutrition. He eventually created the top culinary program in the state with his students winning the prestigious NRA Prostart Championship in 2014 at Blackman High School.

A 2014 visit to Chef Curtis Duffy’s three-Michelin-star rated Grace Restaurant was a life-changing event. That “flawless restaurant experience,” and a return visit to meet one-on-one with Chef Curtis, challenged everything Belew knew about the restaurant industry, and altered the trajectory of his career. No longer satisfied with just “serving food,” Belew was inspired to create a world-class dining experience in Middle Tennessee. To prepare, he honed his skills further by staging in prominent kitchens such as the Spoon & Stable, Blackberry Farm, Brasserie Jo’s, and Table 3.

He is the Hell's Kitchen Season 21 Battle of the Ages Winner!

Hailing from the good ol state of Ohio, chef Alejandro Najar has been cooking since he was a child. His grandmother and aunt are to thank for that. Ever since he was a little Alejandro has developed a refined palate, while other children were eating chicken nuggets, you could catch chef eating escargot and raw fish as a kid.

With fifteen years of experience and being predominantly self taught, chef Alejandro just recently finished 3rd on Hell’s Kitchen Season 21 Battle of the Ages. “Learn something new everyday” is the motto for Najar, especially when you teach yourself! Najar’s skills and flavors range from New American, Middle Eastern, Japanese, and Mediterranean, and it allows him to be versatile in many different cuisines.
