Executive Chef, Black Rabbit, Nashville, TN

Chef Trey’s fondness for humble Southern ingredients comes directly from his roots in Mt. Juliet, Tenn., where he was born and raised.

After school and spending a year cooking in Italy, Trey came home to cook in some of the top kitchens in Nashville.  While working for some of the best restaurants in the city, Trey heard the call to create his own restaurant with a focus on his farming roots. Thus, The Farm House was born. Today, as owner and executive chef of The Farm House and Black Rabbit, both in downtown Nashville, Trey celebrates lessons learned on his grandparents’ farm, combining seasonally fresh food and gracious service to create a memorable dining experience. He enjoys great working relationships with the farmers who supply his restaurants with an ever-changing basket from each harvest.
