Chef Cliff Pleau Of Seasons 52 Supporting Local Farms

Posted: Updated:

Seasons 52 Culinary Director Clifford Pleau has strong ties to California and its pioneering farm-to-table movement as exemplified by Wolfgang Puck and Alice Waters.

Early in his career, he worked with Bradley Ogden as executive chef at Lark Creek Inn in Northern California – the ultimate California farm driven concept that has become the core of his work and his philosophies about sustainability, seasonality, supporting local purveyors and bringing wellness-based menus to restaurants.

    Sutter Zachman had his first record deal when he was barely out of his teens. You may have seen the Orange County native was on stage at the Largo and other hot clubs around LA. He then left town...after what he called a few "bouts" with the music business, but now he is back with a new EP called ‘Repeat Offender.'
