Peter Turso draws on the wisdom of 20 years of professional experience to formulate his culinary expressions and opinions in the modern day. He is a Graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. Spending most of his life in the Northeast, his career has taken him from high volume boutique hotels, high tech food science labs, to several fine dining establishments where elaborate 11 course tasting menus were a commonplace. He believes in the inseparable synergy of the local farm circuit and hyper seasonal cuisine. His cooking, at times, can be analytical and technical, but he also balances concepts with art, color and soul.
“Nature is the truest author and creator, so be prudent, cooking should always amplify, enhance and refine the gifts nature gives us.”
