Born in Scotland, Chef Stephen White has fond memories of the simple flavorful foods that can be found in the British Isles: the superb cheeses, the vast selection of fresh fish, the savory breads and delightful baked goods.
Chef Stephen honors those early memories with his philosophy of cooking: offer simple, fresh food cooked well with flair and elegance. Formerly Executive Chef at Simply Caviar in New York City, Chef Stephen was trained at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in Hyde Park, NY, and the five star Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, FL. There, he learned to marry the classical techniques and modern flair needed for a chef today.
Chef Stephen is the owner of Gold Coast Chefs, a specialty catering and Personal Chef company in the New York area. He can be seen in the northeast on TV, or in person at consumer and trade shows as an expert for food and drink products and kitchen equipment. When he's not in front of the camera or an audience he may be behind the scenes as a food stylist.
Stephen is a restaurant and menu consultant. He also develops and tests recipes for many clients. You can book him for experience cooking classes and instruction. Lately, Chef Stephen has become a fan of juicing and is creating recipes for this latest health trend.
