Chef Brian CarlinCorporate Chef/Center of the Plate Specialist, Performance Foodservice - Southern California

Born & raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, Brian knew as a young child his love for Culinary Arts. He attended a culinary program in his junior and senior year of high school and continued his education at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI. Brian graduated with honors, in 200,1 with a Bachelor of Science Degree, concentration in Culinary Arts.

He moved up the ladder quickly and became an Executive Chef at the Golden Nugget Las Vegas when he was 23 years old, where he developed and executed his modern menu with passion.  He then set his sights on moving to Colorado in 2008 to raise his three young children.  He soon found a wonderful job at the Colorado Springs Country Club as their Executive Chef and soon Director of culinary operations.  Longing to spend more time with his family, he pursued a career as an account executive in food sales.

With lots of love and life to live Brian has always wanted to live in California.  As destiny would have it, Brian always knew he wanted to be back in the kitchen creating wonderful food. He now gets to do both! Consulting and helping create state of the art dishes to excite customers and help build business for Performance Foodservice.

Brian is also an active member of the ACF.
