About Big Al

Big Al is well known around Nashville for his culinary flair, unwavering dedication to his craft and for those who know him, a true role model for the youth.  He is also an exceptional father to his son and daughter – an attribute scarce these days, but the emphasis here is Al’s ability to bring joy via the tastebuds.

Big Al has been featured on The Food Network Channel (HeatSeekers) and represented as a local celebrity chef on Channel 5 Talk of the Town program over the past 15 years. Al is a Christian who loves the Lord and all the people of this world.
