Featured Chef

Chef Tyler Sailsbery
Executive Chef
The Black Sheep

Chef Tyler Sailsbery is the executive chef and owner of The Black Sheep Restaurant in Whitewater WI.

Tyler received some of his training through Fox Valley Technical College’s Culinary Program, and further honed his skills while working for caterers and restaurants throughout the Fox Valley. His focus on farm to table meals stems from his rich agricultural history-a combination of growing up on his family’s small farm and his experience with the Wisconsin FFA association.

Tyler enjoys adapting and combining French and Italian classics to provide customers with a twist on traditional favorites. With the local supply of lamb in Walworth County, you will always see a lamb dish or two on his seasonal menus. Tyler believes food should be fresh, local, simple and unpretentious.

Chef Sailsbery looks forward to cooking for you!
