MEET THE OWNER
Chef Ted Bilsky, Executive Chef
With a deep-seated passion for food and the power it holds to unite families and friends and ignite relationships, Ted Bilsky embarked on his culinary journey in 2014 when he opened Scratch Kitchen in Southlake, Texas. Founded on a commitment to crafting exceptional meals and a belief that every gathering should include extraordinary cuisine, the soaring demand for his catering services paved the way to the catering business. A natural transition for Ted, Scratch Catering & Fine Foods opened its doors in 2015.
Ted's unconventional path in the culinary world is marked by the fact that he has no formal culinary training. A Texas A&M graduate with a degree in building construction, Ted’s love for cooking began as a way to bring his family together to unwind after a busy day. Venturing into uncharted territory, he set out to disrupt the catering industry, relying on experimentation, creativity, and the feedback of friends and family. His dishes, born out of this exploration, have become the hallmark of Scratch Catering, showcasing unexpected flavor combinations, creativity and tastes you won’t find anywhere else.
Known for his infectious enthusiasm and warm personality, Chef Teddy B. emerged on screens in the fall of 2023 as one of the most captivating characters among the landscape of cooking shows. The Eat This TV series Made Scratch Texas with Chef Teddy B. garnered an outstanding reception by viewers drawn to the classic dishes made with a distinctive Texan twist. Additionally, Chef Teddy B. was chosen by Bloomberg TV’s The World’s Greatest and featured as the best caterer in November 2023.

Renowned as a culinary cornerstone in Southlake, Scratch Catering has cultivated a devoted following among those who appreciate the artistry of exceptional cuisine. Over the years, we've had the honor of catering for dignitaries such as the Honorable Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Emeril Lagasse & Good Morning America, The Food Network, and numerous Major League Baseball teams visiting Globe Life Field. However, what has been most impactful over this period is the philanthropic endeavors that our team has contributed to the local community. As a partner with Metroport Meals on Wheels, Scratch Catering provides hot meals to over fifty home-bound seniors five days a week, 51 weeks per year. Additionally, as part of our philanthropic endeavors in the community, we have initiated a program to donate private dining packages to local charities and non-profit organizations for their live auction events.
In 2022, we embarked on a new chapter, relocating to our state-of-the-art facility in Southlake, Texas.

This distinctive and unparalleled combination sets a new standard in the area. Today, we continue our expansion into Dallas-Fort Worth, propelled by our unwavering commitment to infuse innovation into every dining experience. Adding to our journey, Executive Chef Ted Bilsky, widely known as Chef Teddy B., made his screen debut in the fall of 2023 with a pilot show for Eat This TV. The exceptional reception led to the signing of Made Scratch Texas with Chef Teddy B. Season 1 for a 12-episode series, following an impressive rating. Simultaneously, The World’s Greatest recognized Chef Teddy B., inviting him to showcase his talent and be featured as the world’s best caterer. This noteworthy publicity reflects our commitment to culinary excellence and the unparalleled creativity embodied by Chef Teddy B.
As we step into the next chapter of our culinary journey, we eagerly anticipate the unveiling of our new event center, slated to open its doors in early 2024.
