Meet Chef Dallas Wynne
A Florida native, Dallas grew up in Palm City far from any bustling culinary scene. As a young child, she was her mother’s wing woman in the kitchen, always by her side while she prepared meals. Dallas choose to take a few culinary classes in high school as electives, and this is where she found her calling to shine.
She attended Johnson & Wales University in North Miami, receiving an Associates in Science Culinary Arts and a Bachelors in Food Service Management in 2015. Freshly new in college and new to the Miami area, Dallas was given an opportunity of a lifetime to work for Michael Schwartz. Starting at Harry’s Pizzeria, through hard work and determination, she transferred to Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink in order to work under Hedy Goldsmith and her legendary pastry program.
After a few years at Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink, at the ripe age of 21, Dallas went to work for Michael Beltran to open Ariete as Executive Pastry Chef. Here, not only did she lead the pastry department, but also gained valuable knowledge on managing the entire culinary team running the kitchen.
In 2019, Dallas took her talents to Grove Bay Hospitality Group and opened Stubborn Seed as the Executive Pastry Chef with the recent Top Chef winner, Jeremy Ford. Dallas and Jeremy worked side by side creating dinner and dessert menus for the ultimate culinary experience. Stubborn Seed received, and continues to this day, rave reviews by local and national critics. Dallas won Best Pastry Chef in 2019 by the Miami New Times.
After Stubborn Seed, Dallas worked at Groot Hospitality as the Corporate Pastry Chef overseeing multiple pastry departments for this Miami conglomerate.
However, her love of working with Jeremy Ford and the culture of love and family that was instilled at Stubborn Seed, Dallas left Groot Hospitality for The Butcher’s Club by Jeremy Ford at PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. At Butcher’s, Dallas is a force to be reckoned with. She creates the luxurious dessert menu which seasonally features her famous snicker doodle cookies. When not creating the dreamy desserts, Dallas oversees the kitchen ensuring all dishes are to Jeremy Ford’s standards for each guest’s dining experience.
