Executive Chef and Owner, Carson Burks

Our Executive Chef, Carson Burks, discovered his passion for food at a young age. Originally from southeast Missouri, he began working in the restaurant industry at the age of 15. After high school, Carson moved to St. Louis to attend L’École Culinaire, where he graduated as an Ambassador with Honors. During this time, he also worked as a sauté cook at Jimmy’s on the Park. Following school, Carson accepted a unique opportunity to work at The St. Louis Club under Executive French Master Chef, Pierre Chambrin, a former chef at the White House. It was the caliber of cuisine and precision found here that set the standard for Carson’s career. His success at the St. Louis Club led him to pursue an executive chef position for LHM Hotels at The Seven Gables Inn in Clayton, MO.

Later, Carson moved on from the hotel industry to work alongside Chef Brian Bernstein at Algonquin Country Club, and eventually took over as Executive Chef at the Legends Country Club in Eureka where he worked from 2013 until he joined The Dinner Bell team in April of 2017! Throughout his career Carson has been recognized for both his talent and work ethic, which will come as no surprise to those who have had the opportunity to enjoy his Dinner Bell recipes. His knack for perfection and his commitment to working with quality ingredients make him the perfect fit. We are so pleased to have him as a partner and are confident you will love the recipes he creates for you and your family.


What our customers say

Denise from St. Peters: This is exactly what I needed in my life! I did not have to slice, dice, clean up or shop! The recipes are easy and delicious. The staff are super friendly and very helpful. It is fun to do! My freezer is full. And the cost is unbelievable... I spend twice as much per meal at McDonalds and am tired of eating takeout and unhealthy food. I could never shop for the ingredients and have them cost so little. I highly recommend The Dinner Bell. I know I will be back every month.... at least!

Lisa from St. Charles: My 9 year old daughter and I prepped 6 meals yesterday and had such a wonderful experience! Everything was so easy! My daughter loved prepping sauces and attaching labels. The staff was very welcoming and helpful, happy to bring us anything we needed and quick to clean up behind us when a station was finished. All ingredients looked fresh and the facility was so clean! I am excited to have 12 dinners in our freezer as we get ready to go back to school. Thank you for bringing this option to the Cottleville area! I can't wait to come back!

Jennifer from St. Peters: What a great concept! I am not one who likes to cook so this works out perfect for my family. Loved every aspect of The Dinner Bell. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The menu is amazing and will feed even the picky ones:) So glad to have this new business in our community!

Katie from Eureka: We attended date night and had a blast. The staff is so great and helpful.

Kim from St. Charles: Made my Husband go for the first time with me yesterday, and left with him excited to go back. 
We made 6 items. Took us about an hour and a half, but to be honest, we were not hurrying. We took our time, enjoyed the experience, and felt very comfortable just kind of having fun.

Chelsea from Wentzville: My saving grace for quality meals for my busy family!!!
