As the Executive Specialty Chef, Chris prides himself on bringing a complete sensory experience to the table for OceanView residents. For his seafood bisque – made with lobster, scallops, and shrimp – he puts the focus on technique, blending in flavors and textures throughout the preparation. Chris then adds fresh herbs at the end to really wow the senses.
The seafood bisque featured local and traceable seafood and ingredients, re-enforcing OceanView’s commitment to sustainability. It’s a value shared by OceanView residents who desire healthy, enriched living.
“The seafood bisque represents the quality of food we prepare for OceanView residents on a daily basis,” explains Chef Chris. “To receive recognition for that is elating, especially as we are now offering catering services to the region.”
