Southwest Orlando Bulletin - Carl S. Barnard - B.B. King's Blues Club Carl S. Barnard - B.B. King's Blues Club Executive chef Carl S. Barnard, a resident of MetroWest, is cooking up Southern comfort food for the new B.B. King's Blues Club Orlando, located in Pointe Orlando. "The great thing about being chef here is that we prepare great Southern comfort food in a supper-club atmosphere," Barnard said. "There is no other place in Orlando where you can have great food and dance your blues away to live music seven nights a week." Though the Memphis-style ribs are a must, he said his favorite B.B. King dishes are the fried dill pickles or fried green tomatoes served with a combination of three different relishes - herbed cream cheese, strawberry preserves, and red-onion marmalade with balsamic vinaigrette. But, Barnard is known for his sauces and taking a classic recipe and adding his own twist. That, he said, comes from the many years he spent as a child in the kitchen with his mom, and working along side other talented and notable chefs like Wolfgang Puck. MetroWest resident Carl S. Barnard, executive chef at B.B. King's Blues Club Orlando, is known for taking classic recipes and adding his own twist. Other popular dishes he serves at the supper club include Carolina barbecue-glazed salmon, white cheddar mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and collard greens. Barnard's desserts take sweet to a whole new level with bourbon pecan pie and banana bread pudding with Southern Comfort (whiskey) sauce. And, although he is originally from Chicago, he has been in Central Florida for 20 years - long enough to know that every good meal goes down better with a tall glass of sweet tea or B.B. King's signature drink, the Lucille. When not cooking for Central Floridians, Bernard enjoys cooking at home for his wife and three sons. He owns a Texas-style kettle grill and prepares mesquite-flavored steaks and fish, and even roasts turkey on it. He said he is nostalgic when it comes to home cooking, and he prepares his family's Thanksgiving dinner exactly the way his mom always made it, including her dressing recipe and side dishes. Barnard, a graduate of Johnson & Wales University in Rhode Island, received the Le Cordon Bleu medal. Before being named executive chef at B.B. King's Blues Club Orlando, he was the chef at several Walt Disney World Resort hotels, Wolfgang Puck Café, Universal CityWalk's Motown Café, and Levy Restaurants. He also has been a private restaurateur.
