I started in the restaurant business in Lancaster County, PA in the early ‘80's. In the beginning I was preparing most dishes in the German tradition as that is popular in that region.
My current dining experiences, market reports on food trends, seasonal products and many other avenues. Many times I'll prepare new dishes and offer tastings to the Belhurst staff before we offer it to our guests.
Everything is unique to Belhurst. We do our own thing, starting with only the best ingredients, blending different styles of cooking, and ending with new dishes.
I watch the market closely on where to purchase the best product. We butcher our own meat to ensure every steak or chop has been handled by one of our chefs Then, we use a very unique marinade.
My wife Kristine has unique ideas and keeps me from cooking too heavy or saucy.
Marinate, grill, and keep it easy! Spend quality time with friends and family instead of hovering over the stove.
We will cater to the special diet of any guest. Many times we'll custom meals that adheres to dietary restrictions and still meets our standards for fine dining at Belhurst.
Dennis Richardson and William Hand. Together, they run much of the day to day operation of the kitchens here at Belhurst -- and help to keep me sane.
