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.
