Your Instructors

Brett Headshot

Chicago native Brett Faldstein has many years of culinary experience under his belt, including nine years as an Executive Chef. Since moving to Charlotte, he’s embraced local NC farming & aquaculture and immersed himself in the strong network of farms in the area. Working with hyper-local and Southern-based ingredients has been an exciting culinary challenge for him but he feels at home in Charlotte.

Paul Headshot

Paul Manley has played a key role in over ten successful concept start-ups and has led over 30 restaurant openings over 25 years. Partnerships with local Carolina oyster farmers inspired Manley to open a restaurant whose namesake is the town where the house oyster is sourced: Sea Level NC. This same oyster is a staple at Manley’s The Waterman Fish Bar and has solidified these restaurants as Charlotte’s go-to for oysters.
