Anthony moved to Bellingham in 2005 to attend WWU and never left. He went to school for politics and music and soon entered the culinary world as a line cook in order to fund his various extracurricular activities and travels. Working in restaurants was a way for Anthony to learn the professional side of his long-time passion and hobby, cooking…and to earn a few bucks while doing it. He first met Wood Stone while working at Anthony’s Hearthfire Grill, where he helped man a double-door Fire Deck oven as well as a solid fuel grill and rotisserie. In 2013 he was excited to join the Wood Stone team as the test kitchen coordinator. It is a roll that allows him to use his prior experience as a chef, while also continuing to learn and grow his passion for food.
What fuels his passion?
- Simple food done well.
- Smelling the ocean from my front porch
- Being a hopelessly devoted Mariners fan.
