Cowboy Chef Newton is the real deal, Texas born and raised. This cattle rancher featured as “Newton”, the Cowboy Chef on MasterChef Season 8, is not your average cowboy – he has a passion for food and spends his days tending the ranch and coming up with new twists on typical Texas Chow, elevating it to his own Texas Cowboy Cuisine.
Some see Newton’s Cowboy nature and Texas drawl and think he doesn’t know food, but don’t underestimate him. He’s worked “the front of the house” with such Celebrity Owners and Chefs as Tony Vallone, Jack Baum, and Stephan Pyles, where that famous drawl has drawn folks into places like The Mansion at Turtle Creek, La Griglia, Sam’s Café, Hampton’s, Gershwin’s, Houston’s, 8.0 and Richardson’s.
Ask Newton about Texas food, and he will tell you about the dichotomy of Texas cuisine with the influences of so many cultures providing so many opportunities for culinary creativity. From chicken-fried anything to French sauces, he really can do it all, with his own Cowboy influence.
Given a second chance to pursue what he loves, Newton is passionate about giving back. When not in the #uglykitchen at The Double N Ranch Texas whipping up his Cowboy Cuisine or working Farm & Ranch real estate, you’ll find him working with local 4-H programs, in the culinary classroom mentoring students, or using his time and skills to raise funds for local charities, with over $500,000 raised since the airing of his MasterChef appearance.
Cowboy Chef Newton – Rancher, Chef, Realtor, Philanthropist – definitely not a one-trick pony.
“Do what you Love,
Love what you Do,
& Deliver more than you Promise”
