About Chef Aaron Tekulve:

Growing up in a family steeped in cooking tradition it wasn't surprising Aaron's first job was in a restaurant at 14 years old.  In 2011 he started his private dining and catering company Surrell, using a family name that is the middle name of each of the first women on his mother's side.  In Seattle Aaron has worked with some of the very best chef's and restaurants including working as Sous Chef for John Sundstrom at Lark and working with Lauren Thompson (now Chef de Cuisine of Cafe Juanita with Chef / Owner Holly Smith). Aaron learned the finer nuances to cooking at a very high level with these very talented chefs. Aaron has since worked with the team at Coi a 2 Michelin Star restaurant in San Francisco, spent time with the Canlis team in Seattle, helped open some of Seattle's new and exciting restaurants, and has even competed on Food Network's Chopped. He also runs a pop-up dinner series pairing Pacific Northwest Winemakers with a tasting menu of that seasons very best products in a chef's table environment. More about Surrell ->
