The Ritz Carlton Dallas

HEAD COOK: Sean Blanchette

COMPETITION: World Rice and Noodle Championship

I started my culinary career in Austin, Texas at the Le Cordon Bleu Texas Culinary Academy. Moved to North Carolina and studied under Chef Michael Choung for 3 years before moving back home to Dallas to join The Ritz-Carlton hotel company. I spent 5 years with Chef Dean Fearing here in Dallas, then off to The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman as Sous Chef & Chef de Cuisine & Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes as Chef de Tournant & Banquet Chef. Recently returning to Dallas to rejoin the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas as Executive Sous Chef. One of my top culinary moments was getting to stage at The Hotel Arts in Barcelona and Vin Chai Moi in Paris, France.
