Ryan Brown is the owner of Brown’s Test Kitchen. From an early age, he experimented with food and forced my family to try my creations. Some were extraordinary; others were total disasters.

The kitchen was his comfort, especially while learning from his Mom and Memom. With time he learned his family’s soul food recipes while keeping his mad scientist mentality.

His culinary exploration of soul food directed him down his ancestral history of barbecue & African flavors. Cooking helped him find the lost pieces of his heritage. Each dish is a homage to the African diaspora. Take a journey through the African diaspora with Brown’s Test Kitchen.
