Creativity Conversations with Steve Marques, episode 50. Chef Steve is a classically trained chef whose current creative endeavor is ice cream! Some of the more innovative flavors he’s concocted include (but aren’t limited to) balsamic strawberry, chicken N waffle, tomato tarragon and shiro miso caramel. How DOES he come up with these amazing creations?


A California native, Steve has worked with some of the titans of the culinary world, including David Chang at Momofuku and Eric Ripert at Le Bernardin. Steve takes his expertise and expansive perspective into everything he does. Those who know him refer to him as a combination chef-poet-dreamer. 


Steve is an expert at paying attention to inspiration, which for him is more of a light tap on the shoulder rather than a banging on the door. He’s willing to make mistakes, to be “wrong”, stay curious and open. For him, the artistry of food is a full body experience, taking into consideration everything that happens as you walk in the door: the way the room looks, the feel of the ambience, the taste of the food, the noise level, the lighting, the decor. It’s not just food on a plate.


Locally based in Houston, TX, Steve was the chef owner of The Burger Guys and Executive Chef for The Tasting Room and BRC.He currently owns Craft Creamery with his wife Kim Kaase. Steve has many local awards for “Best Of” in both the Houston TX and Sunnyvale CA areas. He was also a finalist for the 2020 Price Tower Art Center Frank Lloyd Wright chef artist in residence.
