No one sums up Brandi Key better than Brandi herself: "I like to make things that take time. I like making things from scratch with my hands. Keeping things simple... using really amazing products and just letting it be. All of me believes that making food with emphasis on loving what you do will always produce the best-tasting food no matter what the concept."
Key, who grew up in a rural farming community in Texas, understands the value of local, seasonal ingredients, which so strongly represents her cooking style. Whether drafting a new menu for Punk's Simple Southern, Coppa Ristorante Italiano or Coppa Osteria, Key is as comfortable in her kitchen as she is juggling the pressure of multiple concepts. Anyone who works with her best adopt her work ethic.
