Beyond working in the kitchens at some of the best restaurants in North and South Carolina, Chef Tallent quickly made his name in the banquet and catering industry as Wake Forest University’s Athletic Department Chef in charge of nutrition and dining for athletes and staff and then again as Peninsula Grill’s Head Banquet Chef in Charleston, SC, arguably the most successful fine dining restaurant and luxury hotel in the Southeast.
Chef Tallent’s proven talent and enormous work ethic, along with the vast experience gained in over a decade of dedication to the culinary industry as both chef and consultant for the Carolinas’ most respected restaurants and the nation’s most elite and powerful people, has quickly made him one of t≠he most sought after young chefs in the region. All of this experience has allowed him the opportunity to establish his own company, Bon Vivant Culinary LLC, to focus on serving the needs of his clients more directly by offering personal chef and catering services to the up and coming city of Charlotte, NC.
Bon Vivant Culinary seeks to extend the epicurean experience to all of its clients. The fine dining industry has long required its patrons to travel outside of their busy lives in order to enjoy the delights of a personally tailored and prepared meal using only the freshest and finest ingredients. However, Bon Vivant Culinary seeks to bridge this gap, providing fine dining and unparalleled service to its clients in their own homes and offices. Bon Vivant Culinary respects the lives and careers of all its clients and seeks to not only give them the culinary experience they desire and deserve but also seeks to bring together a community through a shared love of the good life.
Bon Vivant is also deeply involved in delivering and representing the world’s finest ingredients to and for clients in order to foster this community. Above all, Bon Vivant has a firm dedication to excellence and is committed to providing the good life to all of its clients regardless of circumstance because all people deserve the gourmet experience whether for special events or a quiet meal at home.
