Meet chef Richard Vanderplas!

I am a self taught chef. I was born in NYC where I learned from a young age to appreciate multicultural cuisine. After years of internships, apprenticeships, and cooking whenever I could, I started working in fine dining restaurants, high profile event catering, and as a private chef.  For the past four years I have traveled the world for months at a time in search of culinary adventure. While traveling I work as a restaurant consultant, as well as learning passed down recipes from local communities. My greatest inspiration comes from the unsung grandmas, moms, and dads who cook for their family and friends with love.


You get what is fresh from the garden.

It is always a pleasure for me to get my ingredients from farmers markets and specialized food artisans. This ensures an ongoing relationship between me and the source so I can be proud of what I put on your plate. It also means following the seasons with the farmer, and snatching up the freshest picked food possible.
