Hello! I'm a full-time tax accountant who loves food, music, movies, food, art and... wait did I say food. From an early age, I experimented with food and forced my family to try my creations. Some were extraordinary; others were total disasters. My comfort was the kitchen, especially while learning from my Mom and Memom. With time I learned my family’s soul food recipes while keeping my mad scientist mentality. My culinary exploration of soul food directed me down my ancestral history of barbecue and African flavors. Cooking helped me find the LOST pieces of my heritage. Each dish is a homage to the African diaspora. My wife and I share our love of food in our home in Brewerytown, a neighborhood in North Philly. We hope to see you soon! Also, follow me on Instagram @brownstestkitchen

Everything about this experience was great--the company, the music, the friendliness of our hosts, and especially the food! Each course was delicious, a unique creation with an equally interesting backstory. We can't wait to try Ryan's food again!

Chef Ryan created an outstanding dining experience for his guests. His culinary creations were pleasing to the eyes and the palette. He curated a lovely experience for his guests through the flavors, stories, music and conversation, and made the evening even more special for three of his guests who were celebrating birthdays by serving desert with candles and inviting everyone to sing along to the happy Birthday song! I was delighted with my first eatwith experience and look forward to participating in more of these events in the future. I highly recommended Chef Ryan!!

Great experience. looking forward to next time. I liked the music and ability to chat with the Ryan, learn where his passion came from, and hear about his vision.will look to book again with a larger party. wasnt expecting to be with just one other couple, but they were cool so all was good. I ate it all. the fried watermelon was unexpectedly good, and the grits were crazy. good look Ryan!
