Downers Grove North grad wins Food Network TV show, executive chef position in California
DOWNERS GROVE – Downers Grove native Chris Turano competed on the Food Network TV show “Chef Wanted” this summer and won the top prize – an executive chef position at a high-end California resort.
Turano beat out three other chefs to earn the title of Chef de Cuisine at The Bistro, an oceanside restaurant at the Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara, Calif. The show aired Aug. 1.
The upscale restaurant serves an American Riviera menu, which he described as a mix of seafood and Italian-inspired dishes – an ideal fit for Turano, who grew up cooking Italian food with his Sicilian-born father.
