AOS, Director of Culinary Innovation and Training
Managing the three Canyon Ranch restaurants at the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, Peter creates wellness-inspiring food and beverage menus, which incorporate delicious, artistically presented ingredients.
Peter brings 27 years in the culinary industry to the table; he’s served as the Executive Chef of major casinos in Las Vegas, managed 22 kitchens that fed 16,000-20,000 customers a day, and was the opening Executive Chef for the Horseshoe Casino in Cincinnati.
However, the most rewarding time in Peter’s career were the three years he worked as a private Chef in Las Vegas for individuals who were fighting cancer, specifically lung cancer and leukemia. “I focused on using clean ingredients known to help combat these diseases. I also worked with people battling obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, and food allergies,” he adds.
When he’s not in the kitchen, Peter is typically at the gym; on a walk or hike with his daughter, Gabriella, and their German shepherd, Sasha; or rooting for the city’s hockey team, the Vegas Golden Knights.
“You can always find a million excuses for why you can't make a healthy change, but all you really need to focus on is one reason why you should,” Peter advises. “That one reason can extend the quality and happiness of your life – one meal at a time.”
