About

Ron has always loved cooking and was holding elaborate dinner parties before he went to culinary school in 2011. During his free time, Ron likes to entertain with multi-course dinners, oyster, dumplings, and rooftop parties.

Before moving to NYC in 2011, Ron has lived in Beijing, Toronto, Hong Kong, Plano, and Austin. Ron has traveled extensively so he has had exposure to many countries and their cuisines. Ron’s most recent trip was to the Middle East, in Dubai, and Northern Africa, Morocco.

Ron’s personal cooking style can be described as contemporary New American with strong influences of Chinese, Japanese, and Spanish ingredients. Ultimately, Ron values the ingredient for itself. Ron often goes to farmer’s markets to see what he can incorporate into his menus, both professionally and privately.

You can currently find Ron as the Chef de Cuisine at Degustation (239 E. 5th St. New York, NY 10003) – a wine and tasting restaurant with an a la carte menu as well.
