About Me

Ryan Lopez

I am re-inventing the art of cooking. The food is a way to tell my story and it changes with each new chapter of my life. Recently settling down in the San Fransisco Bay area is just another new opportunity for me as a private chef.

When it comes to food it is about taking multiple aspects of different cultures and fuses them to make a beautiful and delicious dish. I love to get people together and have that interaction through food, whether that is collaborating with other chefs or having a group that I teach.

Performance and nutritional have always been a big part of my cooking. Bring a whole foods/healthy approach to my cooking is something I enjoy and will continue to do for my clients to help fuel them for success.

I was born and raise in Westland, Michigan. This is where the art of cooking set root. I graduated from Schoolcraft College with my A.S. in Culinary Art. I am currently the private chef for NBA superstar Kevin Durant.


Few words from the Chef



What can I say I love food. My journey as a chef brought me from Michigan to Oklahoma and now to Cailfornia. and who knows where else.The thing I love most about food is the interaction between people. Whether that is cooking with friends or family, teaching someone to cook, or that feeling when they try your food.

I am now a private chef for NBA player Kevin Durant. Working for an athlete for 5 years I am able to take those classic comfort food dishes and put a healthy spin on them.

"I encourage you to cook in the kitchen and hope I can inspired you to be creative with food. Enjoy what you do, do it with passion and always season with love."
