Chef Relais & Châteaux

How did you become a Chef?

Some of my most joyful memories are of being in the kitchen and cooking with my grandparents at family gatherings.  When I reached the point in my life when I needed to make a decision about my future, those fond memories were what sparked my desire to pursue a career in the culinary arts.

How would you define your cuisine?

Growing up in NY and Miami, I was able to taste different cuisines from around the world.  I have always been inspired by the creative ways that people embrace their regional heritage and endemic ingredients.  Following that mindset, I have always allowed the seasons and the region that I am in to influence the food that I create.

What are your favorite products and criteria for choosing?

Creating friendships with local purveyors, farmers, and fishermen is something I take pride in and truly enjoy.  I prioritize using local and fresh ingredients versus utilizing ingredients simply because they are well recognized. 

What is your signature?

My signature is to create a balance of flavors using sweet, salty, sour and bitter elements in pursuit of acquiring the perfect umami. 
What professions surround you and what would you like to pass on to them? 
I always lead by example and am very hands-on while training and working with my team.  Identifying and nurturing each person’s unique abilities allows them to embrace their strengths and evolve into a more well rounded professional.

Do you have a Chef’s tip for Sunday cooking?

Get outside with friends and family and start up a nice wood fire.  Use ingredients that you find around the house or grow in your garden to create a simple and relaxed meal.
