Word of South

Leon C. Brunson

Leon C. Brunson, a private chef & owner of Leon’s at Lake Ella based in Tallahassee, Florida, immerses guests in a southern hospitality-style experience surrounded by food influenced by international techniques and flavors worldwide. His cooking style is inspired by techniques and flavors inspired by international cuisine—he’s found passion in the emotion food brings to others and himself. Chef Brunson will be preparing several dishes that are featured in the cookbooks of the chef/cookbook authors Ronni Lundy and Kenny Gilbert for audience sampling at this year’s Word of South.
