Adam Bechard, Chef de Cuisine
Adam Bechard joined The Whiteface Lodge team in 2015. As the Lodge's Chef de Cuisine, Adam works tirelessly to showcase his talents and highlight his appreciation for expertly crafted dishes. After graduating from The Culinary Institute of America (2012), Adam honed his skills as a sought-after personal chef, as well as in some of the best kitchens in America, including the Waldorf Astoria and Relaix & Chateau branded properties. A confirmed oenophile, Adam's love and appreciation for fine wine is evident in his desire to always find the right bottle to pair with his varied dishes. An avid outdoorsman, Adam was raised in the small town of Champlain, New York, and has a great appreciation for all the Adirondacks have to offer. Adam notes his cuisine is a fusion of French, Latin, and Asian with a playful twist on rustic Adirondack fair.
