Read Wolfe | Chef de Cuisine
Born and raised in Palm Beach Florida from a very young age he began offshore fishing with his family and fell in love with the water. These family offshore fishing trips is what fueled Wolfe’s passion for seafood and also very picky about the fish that he would eat, only eating the fish that his family caught.
At the age of 19 he moved to Arizona which is where his culinary career really took off, working at the Hassayampa Inn for several years before making the decision to become a chef. Moving back down to Palm Beach County to enroll and received his bachelors in Culinary and Hospitality Management, while working at several fine dining restaurants in the area. He secured a position at Wild Dunes Resort as the Sous Chef and was very involved with the launch and opening of Coastal Provisions. Food and great hospitality is his passion and it shows in each dish created at Coastal Provisions
