When it comes to his cooking values and principles, Rob McDaniel is a chef one could consider a modernist and a traditionalist. With the current trend of “getting back to local,” Rob is a model for sustainability and trading locally. His passion for these elements stems from his belief that good food comes from making everything from scratch–which, in his kitchen, is everything but ketchup. “That’s what we hang our hats on,” he says. Rob does this by sourcing as much as possible locally and regionally. “The fact that you can talk about where the food came from, who grew it, how it was grown, the process behind it–that’s all part of the story of what goes on the plate,” he says. The act of storytelling is something Rob incorporates into his restaurant to include and connect his customers to the experience of what they will eat.
