Chef Aaron Black
The integrity of local food is in Aaron Black’s genes and the food business is in his blood. Born and raised in the farmlands of Ohio, his family owned the local meat packing plant and as well as the local creamery, selling ice cream to its enthusiastic neighbors. This upbringing had a major impact on his life, eventually leading him to pursue a degree from the Florida Culinary Institute. Upon graduation, Black traveled across the country to further his education in as many different culinary styles as possible. First was the Austrian fine dining establishments Sai-Sommet and La Pasch in Park City, Utah, where Black learned the finer points of European cuisine under esteemed chef James Dumas. He then moved across town to Goldener Hirsch for tutelage in chef Zane Holmquist’s contemporary twists on traditional American fare.
