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.

• Two years later came the Soul Restaurant and Lounge, co-owned by the Chef.

• 2 ½ years as Executive Chef F&B Director Springdale Country Club, Springdale Arkansas

Chef Steven Brooks

Thirteen wonderful years in Northwest Arkansas has blessed him with a beautiful wife, Miranda, and a handsome 10 year old,

Noah Jarrett. Brought local recognition from several T.V. gigs, including the 4 year run of Bring the Cuisine on Jones Television,

Cooking with Soul on the Fox News Edge and most recently Cooking Today on NBC each Thursday

Birmingham, Alabama 1991...

Chef Scott Berg at Vincent’s Market 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.
