Tim Anderson , Foundry Grill Chef

 

Foundry Grill Chef, Tim Anderson was born and raised in Orem, Utah. Tim started working in the kitchen at local restaurants as a dishwasher and worked up through the ranks to become a kitchen manager. In 2002 Tim came to Sundance and spent some time working in the Foundry Grill. He then moved to the Tree Room and was sous chef there for two years.

 

After working in the Tree Room, Tim left Sundance to pursue other opportunities, but soon returned to become the Chef of the Foundry Grill. "The rustic comfort food that we serve in the Grill is my favorite to cook and to eat so it's a great mix for me," he commented.

 

Tim is committed to Sundance's earth to table philosophy. "I have always loved fresh fruits and vegetables. I grew up around fruit orchards and our family's vegetable garden. So, that's what inspires me now to use local ingredients at the peak of flavor."
