Chef Dory Ford

Ford's passion for food began in the Pacific Northwest. Inspired by the abundance of local ingredients, he began his culinary career at Malasapina College's chef-training program in British Columbia. After steadily advancing through the ranks in kitchens of the Pacific Northwest, Ford headed to warmer climates. He landed in the culinary hotbed of Hawaii, where he enthusiastically immersed himself in Pacific Rim cuisine. From Hawaii, Ford moved to Los Angeles to continue to broaden his horizons and fuel his passion for food. After more than 10 years in Los Angeles, Ford moved to the Monterey Peninsula in 2005. Here is was a celebrated leader in the Seafood Watch Program's initiative of protecting our oceans by cooking only with sustainable seafood. Today, Ford is the Chef/Owner of Aqua Terra a company focusing on catering, event planning and menu consulting for the foodservice industry.
