Chef Phillip Kaufman draws his signature "contemporary-meets-old-world" style from his work across the U.S. His mentors, George Morrone and Bradley Ogden, two of California's most prominent chefs, helped him by honing his eye for presentation and developing his palate as well as his appreciation and dedication to seasonal and local ingredients. He has earned nation accolades, including being named as a 2013 "Best Chefs America" while working at Sea Ranch Lodge in California.
In his current position, Chef Kaufman brings his fiercely tuned culinary eye and exceedingly creative repertoire of cuisine to Coast Kitchen and Timber Cove. When Chef Kaufman is not sourcing baby abalone, shellfish or oysters for the menu or working, he enjoys walking with his wife in Sea Ranch or playing with his two golden retrievers, Finley and Dru.
