      websiteDAN GILMORE, EXECUTIVE CHEF -Gilmore brings more than 24 years of experience to his position at the Crowne Plaza. Since the ’90s, Gilmore has built much of his reputation by working with the best chefs in the country at restaurants all over the West Coast, most recently serving as Executive Chef at Sorrento Hotel. Prior to Sorrento, Gilmore was chef de cuisine for Urbane at Olive 8, where he led the team to become one of the top five food outlets within the Hyatt organization. Gilmore has also held positions at a number of notable restaurants throughout the Pacific Northwest, including Palisade, Crush, The Herbfarm, Wuksachi Lodge and Café Terra Cotta in Tucson, Arizona. Gilmore’s food philosophy is simplicity; well-balanced dishes with simple flavors and delicious aromas to trigger fond memories for guests. He believes a guest’s culinary experience should be about comfort. Not so much comfort food, but “comfortable food.” Some dishes will trend toward rustic for those who want a more subdued experience and others will be a bit more elegant for the guests who are celebrating a special occasion. Gilmore holds a culinary degree from Seattle Central Community College, as well as a number of certificates, which include a certified chef de cuisine certificate from the American Culinary Federation, an American Bistro Cooking certificate from Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, among others. When he is in the kitchen, Gilmore enjoys listening to music of all genres and tempos. He usually rocks out to The Sex Pistols and Bad Religion during busy hours, but winds down to mellow music while shutting down the kitchen. Gilmore believes a smooth, calm kitchen making beautiful food is one of the happiest places to be. Gilmore resides in Seattle with his wife, whom he met in culinary school and is a pastry chef, their two children and 100 pound dog Osa.
      chef-van-horn-crowne-plazaMATTHEW VAN HORN, SOUS CHEF – Chef Matthew Van Horn grew up in Long Beach, California. Matt did not always have a passion for cooking, but was inspired by his mother during high school and began to learn the basics helping her prepare family meals. By the time he graduated, he knew that he wanted to be a chef. He began the culinary program at Long Beach City College, earning the Honor Roll and Dean’s List, and graduating at the top of his class. Desiring to round himself out, he enrolled in a two year baking and pastry program. After a six month apprenticeship at the Hyatt Hotel in Long Beach, he started to develop his signature style working at Bayou St. John, Parkers Lighthouse, Naples Grill and Sports, Promenade, Ascari’s, and The Grill. In 1998, looking for a change, Matt moved to Seattle. Starting at the Renaissance Hotel as Garde Manger Chef, over the next 15 years Matt honed his craft further at local spots like the Fish Club, Fullers, and Anthony’s before joing us at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. In his spare time, Chef Matthew loves to spend time with his wife and two boys showing them his enthusiasm for the outdoors: golf, snowboarding, hiking, biking, and just relaxing at the park. Matthew is driven to use the freshest local products and vendors in the Puget Sound area.
