Blake is a Pacific Northwest-native, born in Klamath Falls, Ore., and growing up in Puyallup and Spokane, Wash. After taking various classes at both Washington State University and the University of Cincinnati, he would discover his true calling at the Cincinnati Culinary Arts Academy. The ability to not only nourish but entertain and delight through food had always come naturally to him, though it wasn’t until enrolled at culinary school that he realized it was what he was meant to do.
As executive chef at Suncadia, Blake looks forward to creating an environment where timing, speed, teamwork, communication, athleticism and artistic impression come together to make Portals the number one Washington restaurant east of the Cascades and the number one destination for weddings.
