Executive Chef Dusty Cope’s love of food came from his grandmother’s kitchen and spiraled into a passion to create. After receiving his degree in Culinary Arts with a minor in Hotel/Restaurant Management, he was brought onboard by Old Edwards Inn & Spa, a five star resort in Highlands, North Carolina. There he was paired with a skilled mentor and classically trained to work hand-in-hand with local food artisans under critical eyes to broaden his horizons in fine French cuisine. Chef Dusty also held a position as Executive Chef for The Inn at Millstone, a four star property in Cashiers, North Carolina. There he was able to create the first farm to table concept for the property using only local products with fresh herbs and vegetables from a garden he started. He later made a cross country move to Washington State and has had the opportunity to work with Bon Appetit Management Company, Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort, and do consulting in Anacortes for the Majestic Inn and Spa. Now settled in beautiful Poulsbo, Chef Dusty is enjoying the salt life with his wife Claire and their daughter Hailie…when he is not experimenting with food in the kitchen!
