DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) - Early Monday morning before the doors of KBC in downtown Dothan open, owner Kelsey Barnard Clark pipes macrons onto parchment paper and checks the oven to see if her homemade pecan banana bread is ready.
“I do very classic Southern food, but there’s lots of influence of what I’ve done in my training, which is mostly French,” Clark explained. “I guess the best way to put it is a little bit of elevated Southern food.”
It’s a culinary style she showcased on the 16th season of the fiercely competitive reality show “Top Chef” on Bravo.
Kelsey is one of the 15 chefs from across the country cooking for judges to prove they are the best in the business. This season is based in Kentucky. Each episode, chefs compete in cooking challenges. The chef not meeting the mark is eliminated.
