SMG Tulsa chef Devin Levine was featured in a monthly national trade publication for the live entertainment and events industry.
Levine is executive chef for the BOK Center and the Tulsa Convention Center. He's responsible for menu development and food productions for concerts and events, backstage catering for entertainers and production staff, and food production for charitable events, wedding receptions and conventions.
He was featured in the "On the Menu" section in the December 2012 issue of Venues Today magazine.
The publication highlighted the custom gingerbread houses Levine and his team create each December for the SMG Tulsa client holiday party. The 2012 house was Levine's largest to date. The awe-inspiring design took three days to build and was 5 feet long, 3 feet wide and 2 feet tall.
"What an honor it is to have my gingerbread house featured in Venues Today Magazine," Levine said. "Our gingerbread creation has become an annual tradition and is featured at several holiday events. The beautiful photos and in-depth article showcased in the December issue made me very proud to be a part of SMG Tulsa."
Prior to joining the SMG Tulsa team, Levine spent 34 years at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa starting as a lead cook and working his way up to executive chef.
Levine is the recipient of numerous industry awards including Chef of the Year (ACF Tulsa Chapter), Best Country Club Chef in Oklahoma, Best Presentation (2002 Chocolate Cravings), Most Decadent Chocolate Display (2003 Chocolate Cravings), and he has received multiple medals from the American Culinary Federation.
SMG provides management services to more than 220 public-assembly facilities including convention and exhibition centers, arenas, stadiums, theaters, performing arts centers, equestrian facilities, and science centers.
