As our special guest we have scheduled Chef Morgan Robinson whose cooking is inspired by fire – the Mediterranean roots of rotisserie, grilling and other open hearth techniques. He uses his elaborate grill as a portable kitchen, enabling him to cook fresh, local artisan ingredients on-site over an open fire, and serve the finished dishes immediately, just as it’s done in a high-end restaurant.

Large grill with Chef Morgan RobinsonA classically trained chef, Robinson pursued an additional degree at the elite New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vt. He has worked at restaurants like the Ritz-Carlton in Aspen, but a strong interest in wine led him back to California and the Napa Valley. He subsequently worked as a chef for wineries, creating distinctive menus to complement their wines. Robinson’s years as a winery chef afforded him opportunity to develop wine-pairing expertise with foods, and a natural step was to get in the wine business.
