Meet Our Executive Chef

Chef Isedro Cawaling

Born and raised along the incredible Northern California coast Isedro Cawaling was fascinated with the kitchen at a young age. Still, he was undecided on a career until he enrolled in the culinary program at Cabrillo Community College and his dream of being a chef took flight. After earning a degree in Food Service Technology he continued on his culinary expedition which led him to The New England Culinary Institute in Vermont where he specialized in Classic French Cuisine and pastry making.

Over the nine years Isedro spent with the Ritz Carlton Hotel, San Francisco, he supported the hotel restaurant in earning a Five Star Rating from the San Francisco Chronicle and was voted Five Star Employee of the Quarter. Since then, he has found his niche as Sodexo’s Executive Chef at the San Ramon Valley Conference Center.

More than two decades in the industry have inspired him to create a unique style fusing French elegance with innovative California Cuisine. Isedro prides himself on creating fresh dishes using only the best local ingredients available.

When the self-proclaimed workaholic finds time to step out of the kitchen, he loves watching the Drum Corps International marching bands perform, spending time with his dog Sam and working on garden and do-it-yourself projects around his East Bay Area home.
