Chef 5 Bites: Orlando Amaro

Chef Orlando Amaro mans the kitchen at  Station 4 down near the Southwest waterfront. The native of Venezuela found his passion for cooking under the watchful eye of an Italian grandmother, who was a pastry chef. He attended the Culinary Institute of Mexico and eventually spent time in the kitchens at Restaurant Arzak and El Bulli in Spain. He joined Station 4 last summer.
