Kyle is our shop manager who has been with us for 4 years. He’s a family man who loves to cook and is passionate about our products and our people. Before attending the International Culinary Art Institute of San Francisco, he was a pharmaceutical research tech in Davis; there, he learned to cultivate his curiosity, an experience that was carried into his development of recipes. His recipes are bold and adventurous—yet satisfying. What’s more, you would think his numerous formulas would be stored in piles of notebooks, but he keeps most of them in his head. He enjoys building relationships with customers and often talks about where the meat is sourced, the high quality products, and the care of the animals. His knives are something to behold. Sharpening his blades are both an art and a reflex for him, especially when it comes to the tools of choice—offset and boning knives.

 

When he’s not in the shop, he’s spending time with his wife, kids and two labs—sometimes backpacking through the Sierras. If you meet him, be sure to ask about smoking meat with his Big Green Egg.
