Chef Cameron Curry

 

Nature, culture and art are the three things that I always find myself drawn to when I am searching for inspiration in my cooking.  I try to Garden and cultivate my own product when I can. I always approach plating with the intent that the person eating should enjoy the visual aspects of the plate just as much as the flavor.  I believe travel is the most essential part of understanding cuisine. I have worked in influential restaurants in Miami, Atlanta, and South Texas, and worked as a personal chef in the yachting industry in the Bahamas and Caribbean. I am excited to bring my culinary experiences to Sarasota.
