Monterey Peninsula Country Club
Colin Moody is Executive Chef at the world renowned platinum and emerald rated Monterey Peninsula Country Club in Pebble Beach, California, home of the AT&T National Pro-Am. The Club features two world class golf courses with more than 1,000 members, seven outlets and a culinary team of 30. Prior to his role at the Monterey Peninsula Country Club he was Executive Chef for Asilomar Conference Grounds. Moody has long been dedicated to following a progressive, environmentally sensitive approach to his menu development and has fostered relationships with local farmers and purveyors in the Monterey Bay area. He has partnered with Agriculture, Land Based Training Association Organics (ALBA), an organization that teaches low-income farmers the art of organic farming, resulting in a more profitable income for each grower. This partnership has enabled Moody to offer meals with locally grown organic produce. In addition, Moody composts more than 200 pounds of produce waste per week, which is then picked up by the original grower. Moody also follows the guidelines of the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program. In 2002, Moody pioneered Asilomar's program to donate excess food and food products to a number of local humanitarian groups including the Monterey Bay Area Salvation Army. To date, more than 4,900 meals have been donated and more than 2,800 pounds of food have been diverted from local landfills.
