Vincent Cavalli, who most recently served as the Executive Chef at the Sheraton Fairplex Hotel and Conference Center in Pomona, has recently assumed the role of Executive Chef at Glen Ivy Hot Springs. He began his passion for food at a very young age helping his grandmother prepare fresh pasta and sauce for family dinners.
As a teenager, he started working in the restaurant scene as a dishwasher on the east coast and as his passion for food grew, he also grew in the restaurant industry working in all facets of the restaurant business. After high school, he had the privilege of working in the great restaurants of both Los Angeles and Las Vegas. This led him to work for respectable restaurateurs such as Thomas Keller, Piero Selvaggio and Luis Osteen, where he developed his culinary skills at world-class restaurants.
Through his journey, an appreciation for farm fresh produce and heritage cooking was developed, which brought him to the Sheraton Fairplex. While at the Sheraton, which catering services the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds, he managed culinary activities and wine programming for his own five acre organic, sustainable farm.
