Keith began his career in the kitchen in Long Lake working at the Island Snack Bar under the tutelage of Mike Sandiford. From there his cooking has taken him all over the country, including working in the high-end catering field for over ten years in Washington DC. That experience exposed Keith to gourmet food and techniques, as well as offered the opportunity to cook for Presidents, including, Barack Obama and Donald Trump, as well as the Prince of England, foreign dignitaries, members of Congress, and movie stars.
With over 20 years’ Keith learned the art of sushi as the head chef/manager of a sushi restaurant in Fredericksburg Virginia. Keith learned the tricks and techniques to making perfect sushi that he will pass on to sushi class participants. Keith returned to Long Lake in 2018 to be closer to family and the outdoor sports he loves, and he can be found cooking at the Long View Lodge before he returns to his summer gig with the NYS DEC.
