Chef Kyle Hudson 2022 Baton Rouge Beausoleil Coastal Cuisine Executive Chef Kyle Hudson has always had a passion for cooking and the culinary arts even at a very young age- he gravitated towards the energy and experiences of the kitchen. Professionally trained in French technique, he loves to celebrate the local bounty of the Gulf Coast and all that Louisiana has to offer. Having the opportunity to train with a diverse group of James Beard Award winning chefs has inspired his cooking styles to have an influence from South America, Thailand, Switzerland and England. What Kyle loves most about cooking is the freedom and fluidity he finds in the kitchen. The symphony of the sounds of a busy Friday, the dance of the cooks and servers on expo for service, and the performance of the front of house team members taking care of our guests. Chef Kyle’s favorite Louisiana fish to cook is Wahoo. Hobbies include drinking a fine bourbon or scotch and enjoying a cigar, but most of all he cherishes time with his family and wife Mallori, two boys Jack (8) and Hugh (5) and his newly welcomed baby girl Mary Margaret (3 months). When he’s not working, you’ll find him fishing or golfing. Kyle has been with City Group Hospitality at Beausoleil since October of 2022, and they look forward to seeing him grow with their City Group Hospitality family of concepts.
