TCH gets new executive chef

The Community House at 380 Bates Street, Birmingham plays host to hundreds of events and celebrations each year including business events, weddings, birthdays, showers, class reunions – you name it. Recently, The Community House appointed Ryan Friedrich as its new executive chef. In his new role, Friedrich oversees operations of The Community House kitchen, including food preparation, menu planning and the supervision of cooking and kitchen personnel. Friedrich is no stranger to the Birmingham scene. His extensive professional experience includes serving as executive chef at both Market North End and Streetside Seafood in Birmingham. He began his professional career as a personal chef to LeBron James and his family, preparing daily meals for the family and guests. When asked about changes he may make at the helm of food services for the nearly 100-year-old institution, Friedrich has many ideas. “I want to bring in a younger crowd by creating some new events for wine tastings and bourbon tastings. I plan on modernizing the menus and to work in partnership with local food sources and made in Michigan suppliers,” he said.
