Lindsay Autry of Sundy House is South Florida's Top Chef
Being a finalist on season nine of Bravo's Top Chef, may have brought Tastemaker number 9, Lindsay Autry into our living rooms, but the chef had been working on her culinary career long before that.
The Johnson & Wales University graduate's career started as a kid in North Carolina, trying to figure out what to do with all the leftover peaches on her family's orchard. A protegee of Michelle Bernstein, Autry served as executive chef at the Omphoy Ocean Resort and Michelle Bernstein restaurant, spent several years at the best restaurants in Mexico, and co-hosted several pop-up dinners with Roy Villacrusis, before being named executive chef at historic Sundy House.
Autry also serves as resident chef at Swank Farms' Swank Table series and is active in Share our Strength, proving that there is much life before...and after...the television cameras go away.
