About Trey

Passionate Owner/Chef

Trey Brown is the founder and chef of Southern Mixing Pot, a restaurant that specializes in Cajun/Creole inspired cuisine located in the Garden District of Monroe, LA. Trey opened the Southern Mixing Pot in September of 2017 and has a passion for food. 


Trey always had a passion for food and gets it from his mother. No matter how much his mother had to work, Trey and his siblings always had a good breakfast in the morning and a tasty meal for supper. His culinary background began in the 80s as a “latchkey” kid and his first dish was baking biscuits from scratch by reading the instructions on the back of a baking powder can at the age of 11. By the time he was a teenager, Trey started cooking meals for his friends. Later, he began preparing food for family gatherings. Trey loves to travel and gets his inspiration from the food he tastes from around the country. 


Trey was born and bred in the great city of Monroe, LA. He attended Carroll High School and went on to pursue construction at Louisiana Tech University and the University of Louisiana at Monroe. After finishing school he opened Affordable Remodeling, a construction company that prides itself in turning out amazing projects and is still successful. However, he always yearned to create such delicacies with his hands. This is not a hobby for Trey, every plate is a dream come true. Ask him what gives him drive and he’ll tell you the countless smiles on the faces of all the amazing people he is gifted to meet on a daily basis.
