Tory took his early passion for food to the French Culinary Institute, leading to jobs at several high-end restaurants in New York, including Eleven Madison Park and Judson Grill, before he arrived at L’Etoile to work as Odessa Piper’s Chef de Cuisine.
Now, as the Executive Chef for L’Etoile and Graze, Tory is fulfilling his dream of taking local farm-raised ingredients to the next level. His creativity and talent have gotten him noticed far and wide with recognitions such as the James Beard Foundation's 2012 Best Chef: Midwest award,
Santé Magazine’s “Culinary Hospitality of the Year” Grand Award, Gourmet Magazine’s “America’s Top 50 Restaurants”, Saveur’s “Top 100” and the title of Madison Magazine’s “2010 Chef of the Year.”
