Meet The Emerald Cove Chefs
Owner/Chef Freddie Detore II
West Seattle native Chef Freddie Detore has always had a love for food thanks to the tutelage passed on from his mother and his grandmothers alike. Being an
outdoorsman, avid fisherman and gardener round out the rest of his hobbies. These passions eloquently integrate into his cooking style and theory of sustainability
by the use of the freshest possible ingredients both land and sea have to offer. Chef Detore has close to 25 years of restaurant experience. He started in the
industry at the bottom bussing tables and washing dishes followed by years of experience in every position in the kitchen. Chef Detore's skills were honed with
tenures at Palisade and as a personal chef at the world renowned Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills.
Throughout his experiences home and abroad he gained the skills essential to be a leader in this competitive industry. The vision of providing his guests with
impeccable service complimented by simple yet innovative cuisine with old country roots has to come to fruition with what is now Emerald Cove Catering -
Exclusive culinary experts at The Grand Ridge Manor Wedding Venue and Event Center.
