Neary is a Roswell native, Auburn alum, and a Le Cordon Bleu graduate. He lives with his wife Adrian and his three children, Veikko, Theo, and Otto, and two dogs, Robi and Birdie.

We caught up with Chef Neary on a day off in his home kitchen!

ACL: How often do you cook at home and who is the around the table with you?

TN:  All three boys! Veikko (7), Theo (6), and Otto (3) and my lovely wife. I try to cook at least once a week. Sometimes more, depending on work. 

ACL: What are your go-to dinners? 

TN: We really love to do a kitchen sink Asian style noodle. I use all the veggies and protein that we have chilling in the fridge/freezer. I have a plethora of home made sauces and oils that I keep on hand to spice up a quick and yummy dinner for the fam. 

Breakfast is big at our house! I love to use our flat top for pancakes, eggs, and bacon. Super simple but loved by all! 

ACL:  Your restaurant kitchens are temples to your craft! Tell us about your home kitchen. 

TN: I use a Wolf range with gas burners and a cast iron flat top. It has a dual convection oven. I typically cook in cast iron, but if not I use All-Clad and Hestan cookware.
