About The Ravenous Pig
Today, James and Julie are culinary leaders spearheading Orlando's bourgeoning food movement with multiple concepts in Orlando, including: The Ravenous Pig (2007), an award-winning American Gastropub; Cask & Larder (2012), a Southern Public House featuring seasonal ingredients located in Orlando's International Airport; and The Polite Pig (2017), a fast-casual concept in Disney Springs combining local Florida flavors with wood-fired, smoked modern barbecue. Their newest venture is The Ravenous Pig Brewing Company (2019), a 3,000 square foot facility that will produce namesake brews, available at both The Ravenous Pig and The Polite Pig and will also feature a future beer garden (2020). The brewery also brews the Cask and Larder beer line for their airport concept.
James and Julie have been recognized as semi-finalists by the James Beard Foundation for "Best Chef-South" for four consecutive years. They have also received notable accolades from publications, such as Food & Wine, Saveur, and Southern Living. They are also authors of The Ravenous Pig: Seasons of Florida cookbook.
