Meet the Chefs:

Chef Derek Upton

Redefining what it means to be a chef, artist, cannabis food pioneer and food content creator, Chef Derek Upton has paved a path of his own. As a pioneer of the cannabis food movement Chef Derek took the opportunity to be a featured chef on the Netflix original cooking show "Cooked with Cannabis" released April 20, 2020 and most recently Food Network. These features have led to numerous amazing friendships, business opportunities and sponsorships from Chef Works, Stargazer Cast Iron, HOLOH Extracts and Hhemp. Chef Derek is a force to be reckoned with and sees no end in sight. He is always working on new ideas and always looking to the future which led him to The Clarendon Hotel and Spa.

Hell's Kitchen Celebrity Guest Chef Jordan Savell

After spending a decade working as a sous chef in restaurants like Eddie V’s in Fort Worth and the Oceanaire and Chamberlain’s in Dallas, Savell decided to audition for the show. She had been auditioning for months when she was told to get on a plane to Las Vegas on a day’s notice.

In January 2021, Savell opened Bullfish Foods, a Fort Worth food truck specializing in classic sandwiches with some “Texasness,” or a little spin. The pork on her Cuban and the meatballs on her sub, for example, are smoked. The Dan Dan, a sandwich with Nutella and marshmallow, is French-toasted.

She says the Hell’s Kitchen exposure has helped Bullfish Foods get off to a good start, and it dramatically increased her followers on social media. But looking back at the show, she is just proud of herself for doing it.

“Being a soldier in Gordon Ramsay’s eyes makes me a general in everybody else’s,” Savell says. “If Gordon Ramsay gives you a three, it’s a five to everybody else.”


ALL GUESTS MUST BE 21+. Identification will be required as well as a signed waiver.

Cannabis will NOT be for sale at this event and you are not paying for cannabis with your ticket purchase.
