Following a remarkable culinary journey that included working with Richard Reddington at Auberge du Soleil, Ryan Fancher cooked alongside Thomas Keller at The French Laundry and then at Per Se for four incredibly rewarding years. Six years ago, he moved to Healdsburg with the goal of taking Barndiva's unique dining concept to the next level. Recently, he and sous chef, Andrew Wycoff, launched Barndiva Bistro within the art gallery, Studio Barndiva. Ryan works directly with small farm and ranch purveyors, and informs what is grown on Barndiva's farm in nearby Philo. Married in the gardens at Barndiva, Ryan and his wife Rebekah have a daughter, Rylee, and a newborn, Reese.
