Chef Dustin Selvaggio - Dustin’s passion for food began at a young age in his grandmother’s kitchen. The sounds, aromas, and flavors of expertly prepared food ignited a passion for culinary perfection. While still in high school, Dustin began his culinary career at the renowned Farmhouse in Emmaus, Pennsylvania as a culinary apprentice to James Beard nominee, Michael Adams. Here, Dustin was exposed to some of the finest “farm to table” cuisine the Lehigh Valley had to offer.
Dustin furthered his culinary training at Johnson & Wales University. For his externship, Dustin worked at Walt Disney World’s premier restaurant, Victoria & Albert’s, in the Grand Floridian Resort; he was their first intern in eight years. Their four-star, five-diamond chef (Scott Hunnel) took a chance on Dustin and exposed him to the ultimate learning experience in fine cuisine. He not only learned how to cook, but more importantly how to run and operate a boundary pushing kitchen.
In the intervening years Dustin has honed his skills through a variety of experiences. He has been the Executive Chef at Glasbern Inn in Fogelsville. The Glasbern allowed Dustin to prepare meals with livestock and produce that is grown on property; a true treat for an ingredient inspired chef. Dustin also studied in Charlotte, NC, under Chef Robuchon Alumni, Tom Chondron and Wolfgang Puck’s Chef de Cuisine Thomas Dyrness. He has worked for Chef Timothy Widrick at Edge Restaurant in Bethlehem, PA., and again with his original mentor, Michael Adams, catering at the Sun Inn and opening Harvest in North Wales, Pennsylvania. Today, Dustin is applying his considerable talents to the modern French cuisine at 187 Rue Principale.
