Viewing food as an artform, Chef Cory Oppold and his culinary team take you on a food exploration through an explosion of both your taste and visual senses, using seasonality of products and a progression of flavor.
Cory Oppold was raised on a dairy farm growing up in Pearl City, Illinois. He was exposed to a myriad of wholesome foods his entire life, and naturally followed a strong work ethic as a way of life during Chef Cory’s early years.
After graduating high school with a fascination for art and math, he moved to Phoenix Arizona to pursue a career in architecture.
But a year later, after experiencing his first fine dining soiree, Chef Cory’s career path changed to focus on how to improve the making of better and amazing food for every generation of restaurant guests.
In 2002, Chef Cory went to Scottsdale Culinary Institute and graduated with honors in all aspects of making culinary delights. Cory’s training is based solely around creating a fine dining experience for every restaurant guest. He began his career working in resorts, then eventually leading to mastering culinary masterpieces in independent restaurants, and later even teaching at the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts.
