Chef's Story


 The past decade sparked the city of Austin to become the fastest growing food-city in America. These years also sculpted a young chef, as he stockpiled knowledge and experience from five cities across the United States. Ryan Francis smelled the opportunity coming from Austin, and found himself at Bryce Gilmore's well-loved restaurant Odd Duck in 2014. Over the next year and a half, he learned how Gilmore and his team approached farm to table cuisine utilizing various classic and modern techniques. Armed with invaluable knowledge, and wood-fired passion for the craft, he decided to venture from the Odd Duck.

Gather and Forge is now laying the groundwork for like-minded chefs to nourish hungry clients, showcase their talent, and strengthen the connection between local farmers and anyone who enjoys a good bite or more.
