Chef Angelo Cattaneo was born in San Diego, CA to a French mother and Italian father. Growing up, he benefited from the culinary influences of his parents as well as the wonderful food of southern California. Working his way up from a dishwasher, Angelo’s journey has spanned two decades. He has traveled and worked extensively throughout North America, South America and the Caribbean. Angelo spent two years on a 350-acre multi-diverse organic farm as the head cook and assistant farmer. Throughout these experiences, Angelo not only enhanced his skills and creativity as a chef, but also his innate passion for cooking with fine ingredients.
