ATLANTA (Aug. 10, 2016) – The 2016 “Hired Guns” series continues with its high-profile lineup of star chefs visiting the Gunshow kitchen to cook two memorable meals alongside chef/owner Kevin Gillespie and executive chef Joey Ward. West Coast phenomenon Brooke Williamson brings her signature California-inspired cuisine—infused with local ingredients and global flavorsto the Glenwood Park restaurant on Sunday, Sept. 11 and Monday, Sept. 12.  She will mingle with diners and share her love for cooking, which began at 17 and propelled her to become the youngest female chef ever to cook at The James Beard House.

Restaurateur, chef, cookbook author and speaker Gillespie will be cooking alongside Williamson both nights, along with Ward and Gunshow’s renowned stable of “kitchen dudes.” A limited number of tickets are available for purchase starting at 8 a.m. on Aug. 11 via Xorbia. The cost is $95 per person (not including drinks, tax and gratuity).

Los Angeles native Brooke Williamson is at the helm of several culinary ventures around her hometown, including elevated gastropub Hudson House in Redondo Beach, modern American and craft beer destination The Tripel in Playa Del Rey and a unique four-in-one-concept (market, ice cream shop, whiskey bar and seafood spot) called Playa Provisions in Playa Vista. She and her husband/business partner are soon opening a Hawaiian fast casual restaurant called Da Kikokiko in the same area.

Williamson rose to chef fame as a runner-up on the Seattle installment of Bravo’s “Top Chef,” then won on the Esquire network’s “Knife Fight” and starred as host and mentor on MTV’s “House of Food.” She trained under notable chefs Ken Frank, Michael McCarty and Daniel Bouloud.

The remaining 2016 "Hired Guns" lineup features Vivian Howard of Chef & the Farmer in Kinston, North Carolina, on Oct. 23-24. Tickets go on sale Sept. 23 at 8 a.m.

Gunshow is located at 924 Garrett Street. The restaurant is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. Reservations are encouraged but not required. Guests may park in the Glenwood Park parking lot and on the street. For more information, visit or call 404-380-1886.
