Chris Blum

Food & Beverage Direct / Executive Chef

Most of Chris’s career has been in restaurants. His father was a restaurant owner and Chris started working for him as a bus boy at 15. After some time he worked his way up to chef and ran two of those. After 17 years he left his father’s business for a career in hotels, ending up as the executive chef of the Hilton Singer Island and then Acqualina, a 5 star 5 diamond resort in Sunny Isles just north of Miami. He then “accidentally” found himself as the dining director in a senior community and will now never leave because of the rewarding nature of the job.
