Owner/Chef Andrew Chambers began working at an early age in his family’s vineyard in Penn Yan, where they grew table fruit grapes like Concord Niagara and other native varieties. When he was in his early teens, his parents purchased a diner, and throughout high school, Chambers worked his way up: first washing dishes, then making food.
He attended the College of Culinary Arts — a nationally ranked culinary school — at Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte, North Carolina. He worked at the Esperanza Mansion in Penn Yan during the summers, and finished both his culinary arts and baking degrees in two years. The New York Wine and Culinary Center recruited him in 2008 to be the in-house pastry chef, and just like he did at the family diner, Chambers began to work his way up the ranks. After spending four years as sous chef, he was promoted to executive chef in 2014, at age 26. In 2017 Chef Chambers became Executive Chef at Del Lago Resort and Casino.
He has now made his final venture to join us here at Black Horse Bistro as Chef and Owner. We can not wait to see his creations, with his love and passion for beautiful bounty of NY.
