Chef Darian Bryan from The Plating Society

Coming from a small town in Jamaica Chef Darian was taught how to cook with love from a very young age. Darian grew up in his mother’s cook shop and would help his mother cook for the people in town. Darian moved here in 2012 and quickly attended culinary school at ECC. Once finished there, he attended Buffalo State hospitality management program and worked as the sous chef for Hutch’s restaurant. He then had the opportunity to help a restaurant open from scratch, including building the menu, helping with the kitchen layout, and hiring and training employees. he quickly realized he needed to own his own business and started The Plating Society which features boutique chef services including fine dining dinner events in any location, catering and cooking classes. He has had dinners on farms, yoga studios, and most recently on a beach. Darian has won many awards and been featured in several publications. Most recently he has been recognized as business first 30 under 30. his focus is on bringing the chef from the back of the house to the front of the house, as they too are rock stars, and deserve to get recognition.
