As a child, Todd Richards’ first experience in fine dining at a premiere steakhouse in Chicago set the stage for his commitment to creating culinary works of art. His memory of being served prime rib from a polished silver, carving cart made such a deep impression that he knew right then what he wanted to do with his life. That experience, along with helping his father cook family meals, gave Richards the foundation for exploring a career in creating food for others to enjoy. Richards’ commitment to using naturally raised or grown ingredients is the cornerstone of his culinary philosophy. He strives to create the perfect flavor balance in all of his meals, following the idea that each flavor of each ingredient must compliment each other. Richards treats each meal as an exquisite example of his talents and ambitions, reflecting both beauty in presentation and taste.
