Chef MikkelMy name is Mikkel Brinson; I am the owner and operator of Simply Southern Catering Co. I am a self taught, self trained Chef. My love for food started at a young Age. My Mom would leave us at home under the non-supervision of my brother and when she returned home the kitchen would be a disaster. That was the very start of my cooking career. Some years later I meet my future mother-in- law who was always throwing dinner parties. I found myself gravitating towards the kitchen to help but would eventually take over! It came natural to me and I had a sense of piece in the kitchen. From there it grew my thirst for different and unusual ingredients.

In 2008 I started my catering company, All Occasions Exquisite Catering as a private chef then decided to focus on BBQ in 2010 which was my childhood passion. After 5 years I realized that I could do both, prepare Lip Smackin’ BBQ and exquisite dishes that want my clients coming back for more. We’re also expanding our Catering Company to include entertainment which is the other passion in my life! Food & Music tend to always leave a lasting memory and or impression on people’s lives and I have the honor of being a part of that.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and to get to know my background more.

Born and raised in Naples, a true naïve to the area!
