About me

Food is Passion.

From seed, pasture, to table I harvest a creative passion for food & beverage in a very real way. My father was a classic French chef and taught me haute cusine. My grandfather was farmer in Ohio and taught me a deep reverence for the earth. The lessons from kitchen and fields provided life-influences that have shaped the way I view food, cooking, and life. Every moment spent I seek to execute my vision on the highest levels to obtain flawless results each and every time.

Food is Vital.

A life long chef, Richard has traveled all over the USA sharing his love for simple, elegant, and playful cuisine with a modernist twist. He enjoy's crafting perfect private events as well as working as a Personal Chef Los Angeles His cuisine has won accolades with diners and press alike and has been  featured on CNN, NY Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and many more. 

Food is Life.
