Executive Chef, Bacara Resort & Spa
A lifetime of devotion to the culinary arts prepared David Reardon for his current role as Executive Chef at Bacara Resort & Spa. “When I was six-years-old, I traded my G.I. Joe for my sister’s Easy-Bake Oven,” Reardon says with a laugh. At age 14, he won his first cooking competition at Brookline High School Culinary Arts Program.
Now his plate is full overseeing Bacara’s many dining options: Spa Café, The Bistro, Bacara Bar, Miró, in-room dining and banquets. It’s all in a day’s work for the acclaimed chef, whose office is sprinkled with his many awards, including gold medals in the prestigious IKA/HOGA Culinary Olympics. A member of the International Epicurean World Master Chef Society from 1990 to 1996, he has competed in Ireland, England and France. He’s also competed in over 30 American Culinary Federation Competition winning honors and medals in each, and has cooked at the James Beard House in New York.
From his first chef’s job at the ITT Sheraton Boston Hotel, Reardon spent 21 years with the company working at several properties throughout the United States including Sheraton Hartford Hotel, The Orchid at Mauna Lani on the Big Island and the W Honolulu-Diamond Head Hotel.
In September 2000, Reardon arrived in Santa Barbara ready to implement the same high standards that enabled him to shine at Sheraton/Starwood Hotels. His food philosophy: To serve the freshest quality ingredients the best way possible. “We use the highest grade, freshest everything,” he explains. “All our breakfast pastries are made by hand. We have a butcher who cuts our meat and fish. We use organic products, hormone-free, pesticide-free. We cook healthy, keeping the dishes moderately low in fat. We use fruit juices in the reductions of the sauces and for soups.”
“I come from a family of seven kids. Ma is a great cook,” says Reardon, father of two. He’s proudly served his mother’s clam chowder and her traditional New England stuffing at Bacara. When asked about his unmistakable Boston accent, the charming chef replies, “If you really think about it, everyone should talk like me. I was born 45 minutes from where the boat landed at Plymouth Rock.”
Live Acoustic Music, Wine & More
Saturday, September 27th & Saturday, October 25th | 12PM – 3PM
Join us and “Wine Down” with us for a relaxing afternoon of acoustic tunes and extraordinary wines from the prestigious Sta. Rita Hills appellation. Fall at Foley Estates is a magical time with views of the surrounding Santa Ynez Mountains and a montage of greens and golds that will delight your senses. Enjoy live acoustic performances by Ray Fortune.
6121 E Hwy 246
Lompoc, CA 93436
Singer/songwriter Ray Fortune’s euphonic but riveting voice immediately captivates audiences. The listener is drawn in, mesmerized by lyrics that touch upon shared human experience. The element which makes Ray Fortune stand out amongst musicians is truly the emotional participation he creates for his listeners. His song writing focuses on the universal themes of love and loss, evoking examination of what was, what heartbreakingly is, and what may yet still be accompanied by a clear, soft, melodic, acoustic guitar.
This event is FREE and OPEN to the public. No RSVP required.
Located in the prestigious Santa Rita Hills appellation, Foley’s beautiful Rancho Santa Rosa property is home to a 3,500 square-foot tasting room and event center.
