Beavers Bend Cabin Chef Bailey McCullough Delighting Tourists
Tourists love being pampered and hiring a personal chef is one of the hottest trends in Beavers Bend. Chef Bailey McCullough, the right-hand man for Food Network Champion Chef Tabb Singleton, is a big hit in Broken Bow. He’ll titillate your tastebuds and teach you how to become a better cuisine expert.
Chef McCullough is a native of Southeastern Oklahoma and honed his skills at restaurants in New Orleans. He works with the legendary Tabb Singleton at Phatt Tabb’s BBQ in Idabel, OK and his cabin catering business is flourishing.
A scrumptious lobster tom yum course for my friends Scott and Kandyce Mitchell at Mountain Vista Cabin led Scott to text me, “He’s a genius!” Chef McCullough can create a plethora of menu items while staying at a luxury cabin in Broken Bow.
“The beautiful setting and Bailey’s artisan cuisine made the pics,” Kandyce said.
Chef McCullough enjoys engaging with tourists when cooking at cabins.
“I feel it’s one of the most important parts of the experience. The interaction, all the questions…it really makes a fun experience for the guest and me. I send guests a brief description of what I’ll be cooking and I love the shock and awe on their faces when it’s presented to them!”
