Chef Kyle Barnhart:
Chef Kyle Barnhart learned at an early age that quality and diverse food was an essential and integral ingredient to good living. His deep appreciation for international cuisine was crafted at a young age while growing up in Houston, Texas where he was exposed to a variety of foods that would fuel his passion for cooking. At the age of 18, Kyle decided to learn and develop innovative approaches and classic cooking techniques by attending culinary school in Houston, Texas. Integral to his education was an internship, where Kyle interned in Park City, Utah and trained under acclaimed chef James Dumas, at the innovative High West Distillery and Saloon, working and studying the nuances of both Swiss and Classic American cuisine.
After Kyle graduated from The Art Institute of Houston – Bachelor of Science in Culinary Management, High West Distillery and Saloon hire him where he eventually became Sous Chef and, after 2 years under Chef James Duma’s tutelage, Kyle explored the role of Executive Chef at The Viking Yurt and various Personal Chef and Private Catering opportunities where his responsibilities included everything relating to meal preparations, including shopping, meal/menu planning, meal preparation, delivery, and clean-up.
