COMPETITION: World Sandwich Championship
Executive Chef Dean Kronauer
My passion for food began at a very early age. With my father being a cook in the military he would cook at home, I would be there sitting on the counter watching him cook. My mother was a good cook also. As I grew older I would help my mother cook meals, then the real treat was going to Grandma’s house, she was a true southern, and cook from scratch. I watched her whenever I got the chance to. It was a learning experience for me.
I starting cooking professionally in a southern Donut shop, from there I moved to A small diner doing everything there is to do in A kitchen, while there I was able to start developing my own recipes and cooking style, working my way up to lead cook, Moving on to lead cook for a fine dining restaurant.
From there got in to buffet style cooking, where I started as A line cook working my way up to Sous Chef, through many years of hard work and learning every day.
I moved around to other Buffet Restaurants eventually moving to the PALACE CASINO RESORT Buffet where I have worked my way through the ranks to the Executive Chef of the Buffet.
Along my journey I have entered in many culinary competition winning some along the way.
