Growing up in agriculturally rich California, Chef Ian McKinstry’s early memories are tied to relationships with food. He was greatly influenced from summer sunset drives through aromatic peach orchards to musty wine barrel rooms and back home to the fragrant jasmine and meyer lemon of his family’s backyard. Ian’s dad was a trained chef so he learned from a very early age how to cook. It was a natural step to test his chops by stepping into the culinary world through the door of a restaurant. McKinstry’s 20 years of professional experience since has taken him many places; including restaurants of all types, country clubs, personal chef work in homes, on yachts, to many other truly unique adventures.
