About the Chef
epicurean foundation began at the prestigious New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vermont. It's clear he loves his meat and he loves focusing on fresh, local ingredients with bold, inviting flavors. He's drawn to tranforming casual far into goregously and meticulously plated
Highly accomplished, Chef Smelser’s wide repertoire of cooking includes infusing casual fare with dhaute cuisine masterpieces, all with a Southern California flair. To add to this, Chef Collin is a super nice guy, down to earth and my only regret is not taking photos of him with his creative dishes.
