Chef Ryley Eckersley grew up in London loving art and food.
At a young age, he became aware that good cooking was only part of the equation. A dinner party isn’t complete without good company. Consequently, he’s spent the past 17 years refining the craft of the dinner and the party, creating artful food that brings people together.
His deep understanding of traditional cuisine comes from time spent with family in Southern France, to which he adds a modern twist.
Stints in Belize, New York, Spain, and the Pacific Northwest have further shaped his unique culinary perspective. He also recently spent five years in the Southeast US, gaining a fondness for comfort food, renewing his interest in local agriculture and bourbon (naturally).
When he’s not in the kitchen, Ryley can be found adventuring with his two sons Milo (6) and Owen (4).
