About Soren Pedersen:  

Chef Pedersen was born in Denmark and learned from his immediate family how to cook healthy, inexpensive meals. It was in Denmark where Soren's inspiration for local and seasonal ingredients was sparked. 

Chef Pedersen built on that foundation beginning with an apprenticeship in Denmark. His culinary skills were enhanced as he worked in a variety of venues globally that ranged from exclusive clubs to blackboard style restaurants. In 1995, Chef Pedersen's pursuits led him to the United States. Houston was his first destination and he continued to venture to major U.S. cities from Houston to Washington State. In 2003, Soren married his lovely wife Maria. They decided to make Houston their home and continue to reside in Montrose.

Last year, Chef Pedersen began his latest adventure: a television show titled "Currant Kitchen, where locals grow". The show focuses on his lifelong culinary philosophy of using locally grown vegetable and local farmed raised products: turning them into simple, delicious, unique meals that can be shared with family and friends.
