Meet the Chef
A true local of central Florida, Chef Dylan began his culinary career in several small family-owned restaurants in Saint Cloud, Florida.
In late 2013 Chef Dylan started his journey at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin as a cook in the banquet kitchen. Working under Chef Devin Queen, and Richard West, Chef Dylan was able to develop a broad skillset of many culinary techniques; most notably refining his sauce work.
In the coming years he would hold several positions in the hotel such as a Junior Sous Chef in the casual dining outlets; during which time he competed in the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin – Marriott “Master of the Craft” competition, the 2017 CFHLA Culinary equipment Gala, and took the crowd favorite award at the 2018 “O-Town Mac Down” competition in Orlando Florida.
He has also held positions as Sous Chef of Garden Grove, Chef de Cuisine of Todd English’s bluezoo, and currently the Executive Chef of Todd English’s bluezoo. Chef Dylan’s menu development carries a theme of taking classic recognizable concepts and presenting them in an interesting and cutting edge format.
In his free time, Dylan enjoys working in his home organic garden in an effort to become closer to food at the ground level, and to learn more about lesser seen or known-about heirloom varieties of ingredients.
