A CIA Graduate, Hill did stints in his hometown of Oklahoma City under Kurt Fleisfresser at The Coach House and then made a pilgrimage to Atlanta Georgia to study under French Master Chef Jean Banchet and Tom Coohill at the acclaimed Ciboulette Restaurant. He then worked for the Peasant Restaurant group over two of their restaurants during the Atlanta Olympics, was partner in a upscale bohemian café, and Executive Chef of a prime steakhouse, Coohill’s, Executive Chef for Horseshoe Bar Grill and Beermann’s Beerwerks, before making the move to be the Executive Chef for Winchester County Club ,as a Chef Instructor at the Kitchen Academy culinary arts school in Sacramento, and as the Executive Chef for G.V. Hurley’s, featuring sustainably farmed earthy regional American foods with a southern twist on seafood. Hill is currently the Chef and owner of The Chef’s Table and Hill’s Kitchen in rocklin and Roseville California. Hill’s Style of cuisine is earthy European classic with a familiar emphasis on local products, organics, and farm specific foods. While always having a deep respect for the classical foundations, Hill is known for always putting a fanciful twist on his food. “Food should be fun”, says Hill, “it should not be over worked or architectural, by using the best and most local ingredients and flavors, blending in classical European techniques, and focusing on detail, the food will stand on its own and be spectacular."
