Fourteen year-old chef Flynn McGarry will be showcasing his incredible talents for one night this month at Beverly Hills’ haute spot, BierBeisl. On January 30, McGarry will cook a $160 eight-course menu featuring progressive New American dishes inspired by the young chef’s culinary idols. 

At the end of the month, Bernhard Mairinger’s BierBeisl in Beverly Hills will welcome Flynn McGarry for a special one-night eight-course menu of dishes inspired by chefs Grant Achatz, Daniel Humm and John Sedlar, all culinary heroes of the young chef, according to Grub Street. LA Weekly reports that the dinner will involve two seatings, once at 7 p.m. and one at 8 p.m. The menu will include “snacks and eight courses plus desserts by guest pastry chef Josh Graves of Ray’s the Stark Bar.” Reservations are required since seating is limited to forty guests. 

According to McGarry’s website, at just ten years old the young chef wanted to cook. Practicing his knife skills after school, he soon began to create dishes for a few of his mother’s friends. He subsequently purchased Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry cookbook and Grant Achatz’s Alinea, which helped him to create more complicated dishes. By the time he was thirteen, McGarry had a monthly supper club called Eureka running out of his home and “serving twenty guests a tasting menu of anywhere from eight to twelve courses of progressive American cuisine.”  He has apprenticed under Eleven Madison Park’s Daniel Humm, Maxime Bilet and the Modernist Cuisine team in Seattle, and more.

BierBeisl is located at 9669 Santa Monica Blvd, Beverly Hills 90210.
