Bryan is chef and partner at VOLT, a three-star fine dining establishment in his native Frederick, Maryland. He was classically trained at the Culinary Institute of America and was a protégé of celebrated chef Charlie Palmer. Bryan first fostered his passion for cooking during childhood, when his meals included produce harvested in the family garden. He has since become a strong advocate for meats, seafood, and produce that are local, sustainable and organic. Bryan says “through our choice of ingredients we become engaged in more than creating a great dining experience, but in supporting local agriculture.”

It is so great to see so many people from Maryland on the show! A woman from Baltimore and brothers from Frederick! Plus the guy who's in DC. No beehive hairdos I hope, hons.

Goan - everyone is drawn to someone who can whip up a good meal. But do you think he's hot? Now that's the question! :)
