Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Evan Leutwiler, Chattanooga Christian School 2003 alumnus, currently resides in Los Angeles, where he works as a freelance chef.  As a chef, he is versatile in a wide range of cuisines, creatively serving a number of well-known celebrities.  He has cooked at the Sundance Film Festival, both Animal and Son-Of-A-Gun restaurants in L.A., a Meatopia event in San Antonio, the French Laundry and Redd in Napa Valley and many, many more high-end restaurants and events.  

Fluent in Spanish, Mr. Leutwiler also spent a year cooking and traveling in Argentina.  He has worked with Vinny Dotolo and John Shook of Animal and Son-of-a-Gun as well as Adam Perry Lang of Serious Barbeque fame. 

Mr. Leutwiler is looking forward to sharing his expertise with a group of Chattanooga Christian School students in a new culinary class during the school’s interim in February.  The students will watch demonstrations, develop knife skills, learn to plan and prepare a menu, and enjoy some amazing food. 

The basics of catering will be experienced by the students as they prepare a luncheon for the widows of the Widows Harvest Ministries.  The widows will enjoy a hand-crafted meal in the CCS Fine Arts Center gallery.  Joining the widows for the meal will be the students themselves, Evan, and Karen Smoak, CCS Community Service Director

Officials said, "The opportunity to feed people well and serving others by using God’s gift of hospitality and the culinary arts is of great value to Evan. He hopes to inspire and challenge his students in culinary arts and in serving others."
