About Alex Van Dyke

Born and raised in rural Bucks County Pennsylvania, Alex’s love of food was cultivated at an early age. Nostalgic memories and countless family gatherings almost always began with a single centric question: “What are we eating?”

This fundamental starting point led him on a path to working with the some of the most heralded of chefs in world-renowned kitchens.

Moving on to develop restaurant concepts and lead culinary teams of his own, Alex’s passion has further shifted to share lessons and experiences garnered throughout his career with his hometown community and special guests.
