“I love telling stories - creating delicious food for someone is a natural way of story-telling for me. I’m inspired by the Vanderbilt commitment to hospitality and sustainable agriculture that the family has been modeling since George W. Vanderbilt first established the dairy farm in 1897. I want to tell their stories and honor their heritage through the food we put in front of each guest.” – Chef Randy Dunn
