For Torrey, cooking has always been a passion, and he started at the tender age of 14, and found it came very easily to him. He is self-taught, starting out at a little mom-and-pop café. By the time he was a senior in high school, Torrey was the head chef at the Chart House in Hawaii. While growing up in Hawaii, Torrey was exposed to tons of wonderful fresh fish and producing creative menu items with the freshest the islands had to offer.
Torrey went on to hone and perfect his craft attending culinary school at the CCA in San Francisco. Through his combination of experience and passion, Torrey went on to work at some of the best restaurants in the country including Vivace, David Paul’s Island Grill, Roppongi & Mama’s Fish House.
