Culinary Experience at Villa Antonio Winery & Vineyards
At Villa Antonio Winery & Vineyards, we believe that our Italian heritage, food and wines are a reflection of who we are. Our culinary program is headed by Executive Chef Bruce Piatek, who is committed to continuing our original Italian recipes while introducing innovative gourmet recipes providing our guests with a great culinary experience.
Chef Bruce was born and raised in California. He was introduced to the wonderful world of cooking by his grandfather and father working at their family restaurant in Encitas, California. Chef Bruce is classically trained with a degree at the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts.
He has extensive experience as an executive chef in St. Louis including Eleven Eleven Mississippi, Harry's Restaurant, and Meadowbrook Country Club. He also participated in 21st Century Sailor and Marine initiative to improve nutrition and quality of life for sailors aboard the supercarrier the George HW Bush to provide hands-on training to the culinary specialists (CS) on board. Chef Bruce also inspired young chefs as an instructor at Le Cordon Bleu St. Louis.
