Originally from Pennsylvania and cooking since a young age, Chef Kris received his culinary degree, and was soon off to produce cuisine in exclusive resorts in Florida and Colorado before making his way to Camano Island and doing a year-long stint at The Inn, where he received many five-star reviews for his creative and delicious meals.

He believes the best dishes come from the freshest, highest quality ingredients and he considers it part of his job to inspire and educate guests about the bounty that surrounds us here in the Pacific Northwest.

You can often find Kris at the local farmer's markets, or checking out the best restaurants in the area!




We host special buffets on Easter, Mother's Day and Thanksgiving. Watch our Facebook page or this space for more details!
