My first taste of the food industry was working as a waiter for 4 years at Casa Dorinda Retirement Community in Montecito which is next door to my childhood home. I am happy to report that Casa Dorinda has hired local chef Jamie West as their new Executive Chef. “We are excited to have Jamie join us,” said Ron Schaefer, chief executive officer at Casa Dorinda. “I have been a fan of his food since tasting it at San Ysidro Ranch, and I believe our residents are going to thoroughly enjoy the wonderful culinary creations that Chef West has in store for them.” Chef Jamie West brings more than 30 years of culinary experience. “Having served as the executive chef at the San Ysidro Ranch, Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, and the L’Auberge Del Mar Resort, I am happy to bring my experience and enthusiasm to Casa Dorinda,” said West. “We will offer healthy choices developed in combination with our staff nutritionist along with some sinfully delectable dishes, because I believe food should be a fun and delicious experience.”
