CHEF RYAN ARENSDORF

EXECUTIVE CHEF

Taking his classic French training, modern Italian influence, extensive experience at top Chicago steakhouses and small-town charm, Chef Ryan Arensdorf is Salamander Resort & Spa's Executive Chef. Chef Arensdorf was born in northwestern Kansas where he discovered his love of cooking at an early age. Some of his fondest childhood memories include visits to his grandparents' home where homemade breakfasts with his grandmother were a delicious tradition packed full of memories. The most memorable visit was when his grandfather tried his hand at the morning meal and prepared it a little differently than Arensdorf's grandmother. His grandfather told him if he didn't like how it was made, he needed to learn how to make it himself. with that, the humble beginnings of his lifelong journey through the culinary world began.

Chef Arensdorf moved to Chicago, Illinois immediately after high school to study at Kendall College. Pairing the school's expansive culinary program and the city's exciting dining scene, Arensdorf quickly felt at home. He began his career at Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse after a professor recognized his passion and skills in the kitchen. Here, Chef Arensdorf was able to master his skills of identifying the best cut of meat and treating it correctly to produce a flavorful dish based off the natural essence of the protein. He then moved to Michael Jordan's One sixtyblue where he worked under Chef Martial Noguier learning classic French cooking techniques. Chef Arensforf worked with Chef Noguier as Chef de Cuisine for seven years thereafter at Bistronomic as well as Cafe' des Architectes at Sofitel Chicago Water Tower. Chef Arensdorf also worked with Chef Todd Stein to open Cibo Matto at the Wit Hotel. Before joining Salamander, Chef Arensdorf was most recently the Chef de Cuisine at the W Hotel Chicago Lakeshore.
