Executive Chef Kevin Des Chenes has nearly 20 years of experience in the restaurant industry, but his passion for food & hospitality developed long before that. It was spending Sundays in his grandmother’s kitchen as a child where he discovered his calling. He opened his first restaurant in Burlington, VT in 2009, and over the years Chef Kevin has had the pleasure of cooking for many happy restaurant goers, including professional athletes and high profile politicians and celebrities. He has served as Executive Chef to some of New England’s most notable restaurants and catering companies. Chef Kevin’s creativity in the kitchen has not gone unnoticed!
Most recently, Chef Kevin and his team, New England Grill, were finalists on Food Network’s “The Great Food Truck Race.” He is the 2015 Winner of The Top Celebrity Chef Battle in Temecula California and has appeared on the nationally syndicated Better Show, The Rhode Show, TV Maitre D, Phantom Gourmet and Food Network’s “Chef Wanted” with Anne Burrell, as well as “Beat Bobby Flay,” & Spike TV’s “Frankenfood.” Chef Kevin is also the author of “Beyond My Chef Coat: Cuisine and Cocktails with Chef Kev D.”
Chef Kevin is a driven innovator who loves a challenge, and is extremely excited to be a Chef-Partner with Main Entrée!
