Kyle joined The Ranch in 2016 as Sous Chef bringing his passion of farm to table cooking and fresh and local sourced cuisine. Kyle’s love for food started in the kitchen with his family’s cooking and Grandmas’ recipes, which led him into the culinary world working in restaurants while attending school. After graduating from University, Kyle pursued a career in the culinary arts where he worked with the opening team at Selanne’s Steak house in 2013 for Hockey Hall of famer Teemu Selanne. Kyle then moved onto the private world of Club Corp where he became Sous chef at The Center Club of Orange County. It was at the private club where he helped develop tailored culinary experiences for its members with paired wine dinners from Kosta Browne, Kendall- Jackson, Duck Horn and more, and beer dinners with local breweries Bootleggers, the Brewery and Barley Forge. Kyle has worked several Chef’s Table events for the Rooster’s Charity, the Illumination foundation and Club Corp’s fundraiser hosted by Food Network’s Simon Majumdar and Bravo’s Top Chef runner up Amar Santana. Kyle enjoys spending time in Montana where he was born, visiting his family’s farm, fly fishing and camping in the mountains. He currently lives in Laguna Beach with his wife Laura where he enjoys surfing, photography and seeking out new food trends. Kyle attended California State University Long Beach.
