Julia Child Cooking Partner Joins Wind Creek Hospitality Culinary Team

9/12/2014
(Atmore, AL)  Wind Creek Hospitality (WCH) welcomes Chef Peter D’Andrea as the new Corporate Executive Chef. Chef Peter brings over 30 years of experience in food and beverage to Alabama. One of his most exciting cooking experiences was cooking with renowned chef Julia Child at her 80th birthday party.
 
D’Andrea’s culinary journey began as an Italian kid in the Bronx, NY where he says “to us food was love.” The journey has taken him to places like Piemonte, Italy and the aircraft carrier, USS Abraham Lincoln with stops all across the USA including five years at Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. He says “one of his greatest honors” is receiving three James Beard invitations to cook at the townhouse in New York City.
 
D’Andrea will be responsible for the creation and development of the culinary brand as well as the quality of food and beverages offered to WCH guests at Wind Creek Casino & Hotel Atmore, Wind Creek Casino & Hotel Wetumpka and Creek Casino Montgomery. He will continue the WCH tradition of purchasing local ingredients for recipes as often as possible.
 
D’Andrea will work with other culinary team members to develop menus and offerings that provide WCH “guests an escape from their ordinary world and treat them to bites of culinary fantasy that make them want to return to our properties”. Peter will also mentor and motivate the entire culinary team to provide this same enthusiasm, excitement, and culinary experience to all Wind Creek Hospitality guests.
