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 sit on the counter watching. My mother was a great cook also. As I grew older I would help my mother cook meals. 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 dinner doing everything there is to do in A kitchen, whale there I was able to start developing my own recipes and cooking style, working my way up to lead cook, Moving on from there, to lead cook In 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 with in six months, 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 competitions winning some along the way.
