As a young boy growing up in Northern California, Trevor got an early start in the culinary world. He would watch his grandmother cook and admire how she made everything from scratch. After graduating from high school, it came as no surprise when he enrolled in the renowned Le Cordon Bleu Program at the Western Culinary School in Portland, Oregon. Trevor returned to Northern California shortly after completing the culinary program at the top of his class.
His first full-time position was Pastry Chef at the celebrated French bistro, Bouchon, in Yountville. From there, he moved to the East Bay to run the kitchen at Va da Vi, a lively wine bar where his brother is still the Wine Director. It wasn’t long before Trevor moved back to the Napa Valley and was hired as the Executive Sous Chef at Angéle Restaurant in downtown Napa. He now runs his own catering company and enjoys selecting wines to pair with his cuisine.
Trevor refers to his style of cooking as Northern California Cuisine. In his words, it means “local, coastal, seasonal, and refined fare.” He carefully selected dishes that are suitable to enjoy in the Spring time. And most importantly, he crafted these recipes to compliment the wines in your Wine Club shipment. We hope that you will have fun recreating these recipes in your own home.
