Chef Bryan Gardner: After studying English and History at the University of Southern Maine, Chef Bryan Gardner longed to fulfill his passion for food. He went on to study culinary arts at the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont. After graduating in 2005 he launched an impressive career working among some of Napa’s finest Michelin Star restaurants. He expanded his food horizons in 2008 and became the Executive Chef at the Relain & Chateaux property, Hotel de la Paix in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Bryan returned to Calistoga in 2012 and went on to leverage his culinary prowess in the Napa Valley. Bryan’s fondness for food began while he was growing up in New England; he was born into a family of foodies and raised on some of the finest seafood from the Coast of Maine.
