2018 Talent

Kristin Beringson

Executive Chef, Silo

Kristin Beringson began her culinary journey in 2009 when she left her career in retail management to pursue her dream of creating and inspiring in the field of culinary arts.  While enrolled in culinary school at the Art Institute in Nashville, she contributed to a number of restaurants in Nashville, before finding her way to SILO winning an episode of Food Network’s “Chopped” along the way.

Although Chef Beringson is relatively a newcomer in the Nashville food scene, she offers fresh and inspired flavors, with worldly ideas, which elevates her cuisine to that of a seasoned veteran.  She prides herself on the utilization of local and sustainable ingredients.  Beringson’s cuisine is characterized by classic French technique, elegant plating, a fondness for Mediterranean flavors, and an unwavering commitment to flawless execution. Personally, Beringson enjoys exploring other restaurants in other cities, and  volunteering with charity organizations, like Future Farmers of America, Second Harvest Food Bank, and Hands on Nashville.
