Kevin Ouzts – The Spotted Trotter
Kevin Ouzts is the Executive Chef/Owner/Charcutier of The Spotted Trotter Charcuterie, which he opened in June 2009 after an inspirational education at The Fatted Calf and The French Laundry in Northern California. A graduate of Le Cordon Bleu and former sous chef under James Beard Award Winning Chef Linton Hopkins at Restaurant Eugene. Focusing on New World Charcuterie, Chef Ouzts describes The Spotted Trotter, his first business opened in 2009, as a labor of love where he fixates on “making good food the right way” by prioritizing the use of humanely-sourced proteins and sustainable ingredients from in and around the Southeast. Kevin closed his Restaurant The Cockentrice where he was Executive Chef in late 2015 to solely focus on The Spotted Trotter. The current focus is to push the development and foundation of New American Charcuterie, inspiring flavors in meat unlike anywhere in the world. Kevin and his wife recently purchased a piece of land in the heart of Atlanta and will be moving into a properly outfitted new, production facility within the next 4 months.
