About the Chef

Chef Glover’s culinary career began as a child working with many family influences, his mother’s side of the family is all Italian and the cooking was done often, in big portions, and with great execution and passion. His father’s Mother was a chef/owner of her own restaurant in which he often found himself in the kitchen trying to get into anything he could and learning along the way. He had no idea that the family background he was surrounded with as a child would propel him into the culinary career in which he has embarked.


He was taught at an early age where food came from, how to respect it, that ingredients matter and creating experiences is key. He loves food and feeding people, loves to see a person enjoy something for the first time, savor a bite and come back again for more. His cooking travels have taken him through Europe for a gastronomic tour of flavors, technique and respect of quality. He has three chefs that have taught him a great deal about cooking professionally the first being Tim Hull Executive Chef of Jefferson Country Club. After that he moved on to New Albany Country Club and worked for Christopher Bee and defined a simple elegance approach to cooking. He also spent two years working for Travis Kawasaki at Strada World Cuisine learning Asian flavors and sushi rolling techniques. Along the years of practice he has gained knowledge from many cooks, servers, dishwashers and front of the house managers. He has learned that each and every person that he has ever worked with is part of every plate he serves. His work as a chef is a collection of knowledge that is a product of many years of passionate learning and a vast array of people who in some way have shaped his work and passion for the business.
