Carmel Valley Ranch
Tim Wood is Executive Chef at Carmel Valley Ranch. He began his career in New York's Catskill Mountains where he learned the rhythm of the seasons and their relation to food from small-production family farms in the Hudson Valley. He later worked in renowned Manhattan restaurants, including the legendary Rainbow Room before joining Cal Stamenov at Bernardus Lodge. At Carmel Valley Ranch, Wood shapes menus with fresh foods from purveyors he considers part of the family. Many of the fruits and vegetables featured in Wood's dishes are grown at the ranch's onsite organic garden.
