about

COMMUNITY. FOOD. WELLNESS.

 

Bob is a culinary, health and wellness, and operations professional with twenty years of food service experience with an expertise in management ranging across farm-to-table, plant-based, fine dining, and large scale food services. 

His personal food philosophy is straightforward: Cook locally, seasonally, and simply. He believes that a closer relationship with your food, including knowing the farmers who grow it, is not only meditative, but also promotes conscious consumption that spreads to other areas of life.

Currently, he consults with hospitality teams operating retreat centers, conference centers, camps, hotels, and restaurant groups who want to focus on building sustainable operation models, wellness programs, community engagement, and supporting the local economy.

He loves working with creative, team-oriented people in building an environment where the culture is socially conscious and the mission is in service to whole relationships.

Testimonials

Bob was our opening Chef at Rivertown. We found him to be responsible, kind, organized and caring. I have no doubt whatsoever he will be an asset to whatever projects or properties he takes on.
— RAY PIRKLE, COFOUNDER AND COOWNER RIVERTOWN LODGE
Over the ten months Bob Turner partnered with Happy Valley, he was completely authentic and productive. Bob stepped respectfully into our organization and began to produce incredible food and change the culture in the kitchen—and our Food Service—gently but deliberately. He led us through a process that examined every part of our operation. The outcomes of this are still being felt. From menu planning to appropriate labor models, inventory control to ordering, we now have an intergrated system that looks wholistically at our Food Service.

The food profile is clean and has led to a focused inventory that reduces the number of items we keep in stock and allow for streamlined inventories and fast ordering. Bob’s contribution to Happy Valley will be felt for years here. Our focus statement at Happy Valley is: Experience. Dynamic. Transformation and Bob has done that for us!
— TIM DODD, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR HAPPY VALLEY CONFERENCE CENTER
