Chef Alice Gonzalez
Chef Alice Gonzalez’s personal food philosophy is “Being true to yourself and evoking feeling through food”. For the last 9 years, Chef Alice has been working with some of the country’s best chefs in Michelin starred restaurants and traveling the world.
Chef Alice began her culinary education at Johnson&Whales University, located in Providence, RI, and continued her education through years of working in different cities throughout the United States and the UK.
After graduating with honors she worked abroad at Cliveden Hotel west of London at the Michelin starred Waldo’s restaurant under the French chef Daniel Gamiché. Upon returning to the states she worked under Chef Todd English at the original Olives restaurant in Charlestown Mass. It there that she learned how to love and respect the art of making risotto. After a brief stint working in Miami hot spots she relocated to Chicago and started working at a tiny little restaurant called Alinea. She spent two years under chef Grant Achatz and Dave Beran where she started her journey towards her continuous search of her own perfection. She left to become the sous chef at the one Michelin starred restaurant North Pond, and worked there for a year before being called back by Chef Achatz to return to Alinea and Next restaurant in a larger chef role.
Her most recent role was as the Executive Sous Chef at Morimoto Napa under TFL alum chef Kang Kaun. She learned the finer points of Asian cuisine mixed with the simplicity of California cuisine.
Alice has been living in Austin for over a year and in her personal time likes to raise chickens, forage, garden, and enjoys art and nature with her husband.
