Chef's Table

​Join us for an intimate (up to 16 guests) meal under the oaks. We’ll connect over food, wine and conversation, while a gifted Texas artist shares with us their creative journey.


The evening is highly interactive, with our chef introducing each course and paired wine, explaining his cooking methods as he prepares, plates and serves.

Executive Chef

Tanner Purdum

Tanner’s passion is bringing people together to experience the best food that local and sustainable farming has to offer. His previous work as a cook in a fine dining, James Beard award winning establishment, executive chef of a farm-to-table restaurant and most recently as a private chef have helped him develop his craft. Tanner is committed to providing the highest quality ingredients and dishes, while supporting local family farms (Purdon Groves and others) that enrich community health and value. His experience working day-to-day with diverse seasonal menus and dietary needs has helped shape his identity as an innovative and creative chef.

Tanner is excited about showcasing the foods grown at Purdon Groves, educating our guests in preparing those foods, and hopefully, inspiring them to support local farmers and artisans. His passion is bringing people together over great food, whether the environment is a relaxed picnic or a candlelit dinner.
