SAVOR is back and better than ever, bringing together over 100 small and independent breweries from around the country to showcase their craft beers. But SAVOR isn’t just about the beer; it’s about the food too. And this year, SAVOR has recruited some of the best chefs in the country to create tapas-style small plates to pair with each beer. One of those chefs is the talented Chef Lamar Moore, who is bringing his Southern comfort with a Chicago flair to the event.
Chef Moore’s love for the culinary arts started at a young age, learning from his grandmother who taught him the importance of cooking with love and soul. And boy, does he bring that love and soul to his SAVOR creations. Chef Moore’s flavor profile is inspired by his love for beer and southern food, and he’s excited to showcase those expressions at SAVOR.
But Chef Moore’s culinary journey hasn’t been easy. It’s taken years of hard work and dedication to get where he is today. From graduating from Le Cordon Bleu to cooking for the Chicago Bears and even the Obamas, Chef Moore has seen it all. And now, he’s the head chef of the all-new $10 million steakhouse, Bugsy & Meyer’s Steakhouse at Flamingo Las Vegas.
Chef Moore’s advice to aspiring chefs is to never stop cooking and to feel food from your soul. And that’s exactly what he’s doing at SAVOR. He’s humbly bringing his soulful Southern flair to the event, excited to meet new chefs, work with old chefs, and bring a taste of Chicago to D.C.
