Chef Kendall Curry, owner and executive chef of “Chef Curry To Go,” has been part of the Oklahoma City restaurant landscape for more than 27 years. Starting as a line cook at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club, it was there that he discovered his passion for cooking – specifically, cook-to-order, and he has not stopped since. For 15 years, Chef Curry worked at Ranch Steakhouse and while there in 2008, received his culinary arts degree. He would later become the Executive Chef.
Chef Curry worked under the tutelage of Chef Nordeen Bennai, at Pepperoni Grill and 501 Cafe. He has also worked with Chef Bruce Rinehart and Chef Jason Bustamante at Rococo, as well as several other well-known chefs and fine dining establishments in Oklahoma City. This is where he built his reputation for exquisite cooking and coined his motto, “Cooking comes from the heart!” It is with that passion that he created mouthwatering dishes from his very own recipes that kept Oklahoma diners coming back for more.
It is this continued passion that led Chef Curry and his wife to open the doors of Chef Curry To Go, a quaint and casual dining restaurant, where only the freshest ingredients are used. It is there that Chef Curry prides himself on creating one-of-a-kind, cook-to-order and signature dishes that tease the palate, comforts the soul and keep customers coming back for more.
This proud U.S. Army veteran found his love for cooking more than 23 years ago while working under the guidance of Chef Nordeen Bennai. It is also when he met Chef Kendall Curry and a lifelong friendship developed.
