Bevers is new chef at Hudson Golf Club

Spring is a great time to introduce change, and that is exactly what Hudson Golf Club's new chef is planning. Brian Bevers earned the position of executive chef in October and this week has introduced a new menu for the public restaurant, which operates at the Hudson Golf Club.

Bevers, a 1993 Hudson High School graduate, has worked in the restaurant business since he was 15 and was a cook at Kozy Korner in North Hudson. At 19 he was working at the Log Cabin (currently Northpoint) in North Hudson. While attending UW-Eau Claire, Bevers continued to work in the industry, from bartending, cooking and serving to everything in between.

He eventually went to culinary school in Minneapolis, graduating in 2001. His first job after was banquet chef at the Minneapolis Golf Club.

In the spring 2006, Bevers accepted the job of sous chef at Hudson Golf Club.

"If I had a style it would be a blend of French and Italian with an American twist," said Bevers, who is offering a cooking class this Saturday. "I just really enjoy taking different ingredients and then seeing what happens. Sometimes it is a great success. Other times you know it is not something you need to repeat."

"There is no better feeling, other than when I had my kids, than seeing someone enjoy something you cooked," said Bevers, who is married with two boys.

The Hudson Golf Club offers a full-service public restaurant. Hours are Tuesday and Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Thursday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The restaurant is closed Monday.

Cooking class

Bevers is hosting a demonstration class at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 15 for $22.95. Bevers will show those attending how to make potato gnocchi, pork tenderloin and a flourless chocolate cake. The price includes a beverage and a glass of wine, plus a sampling of the lunch. Advance sign-up is required, (715) 386-6515.
