Sous Chef at Bramling Cross

Before taking a job with Ethan Stowell Restaurants, Kristofer was cooking his way through college in California. Up until graduation he hadn't realized that he didn't want to work in an office—he has loved cooking in various kitchens ever since. He has worked locally at Lechosho and Cinque Terre Ristorante, and now is the sous at Bramling Cross.
