Chef Peter McCaffrey, Director of the Culinary Insight Group for LCA

Peter is a “chef’s chef,” and we are delighted to bring him to the Culinary Insight Group. Chef McCaffrey was for many years a prominent and successful chef/owner of a high-profile catering company in the Wine Country area north of San Francisco. He operated Wine Valley Catering for 20 years, with a client list that included Opus One Winery, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Mondavi, Google, Yelp, and the City of San Francisco. His company provided F&B services at the prestigious Villagio and the Vintage Inn in Yountville, CA.

Peter is a graduate of the California Culinary Academy. After graduation he made the rounds of some of the most prominent restaurants in France, working under chefs Alain Ducasse, Alain Senderens, and Phillipe de Givenchy. He returned to the US to take on a number of important culinary positions, including Executive Sous Chef at the Lafayette Hotel in Boston, Chef de Cuisine at the Portman Hotel in San Francisco, and Executive Chef at the Brava Terrace Restaurant in the Napa Valley.
