Peter Klein joins CulinArt Group as new Director of Culinary Development

PLAINVIEW, NY – Peter Klein has joined CulinArt Group as Director of Culinary Development, bringing more than 25 years of experience with restaurants in New York City, New Orleans, South Florida, Hawaii and other hotbeds of culinary innovation to the company.

Klein works with CulinArt Group’s Operations teams in 18 states to bring our clients and customers the latest in tastes and trends. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Peter has experience at every level of the restaurant hierarchy – from Owner/Operator and Executive Chef to Culinary Director, Food Stylist and Consultant.

Klein’s talents will serve CulinArt Group (and, just as importantly – our clients) well in blending culinary expertise with cost-efficiency. In restaurants he has led, he balanced revenue growth with tight food- and labor-cost control. For hotel chains in a consulting capacity, he specialized in the development of menu concepts, recipes and seasonal menu changes. Throughout his career (and regardless of the venue) he also ensured efficiency in kitchen design, staff selection and management, and return-on-investment.

“After an extensive search for the perfect fit,” says Tom Eich, President and Chief Operating Officer of CulinArt Group, “Chef Peter’s wide industry experience brings a fresh, invigorated approach to dining services to our clients.”

New York City is Peter’s home as well as his “favorite city in the world,” yet he draws inspiration from travel to Europe and other parts of the world. In addition to appearing on reality TV series “Chopped: Season 2,” Peter has taught Culinary Arts at The New School, Institute of Culinary Education and De Gustibus Cooking School at Macy’s.

What our clients are saying

“The dinner I had tonight at Forman was not only the best meal I have had at Forman in the entire time I have been here, it was the best meal I can remember having anywhere in a long time. [It] was a restaurant quality meal, and it added to the enjoyment that the two young ladies serving me could not have been more charming. What an energizing way to finish a weekend eating a dinner like that.”

“What a difference a top chef makes to student satisfaction and enjoyment of campus life!  At a recent boarding school conference, food was mentioned as a key retention method and it is really true. The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team. Frank even has a suggestion box, so he is always open to new ideas and he even offers cooking classes for our students!”

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“What a night! You and your team rocked it and made us look like stars. Great working with you and know we will have more chances to work together on future events.”

“Yesterday I ordered the special (Bloody Mary Burger) which was one of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted, [but] this e-mail is not to praise the burger.  Eating the burger reminded me of the great service, professionalism, the smiles, the knowledge and the great food that I have come to love each and every day.  Your team, who really work as a team, take their time to explain nutrition and meal ideas, and encourage healthy eating.  I wouldn’t change one thing about this crew. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for their hard work each and every day.”

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”

“I just wanted to give a huge compliment to the cook at Main Street. Today I had the Salmon Super Bowl and it was amazing!!!! Every day I go in there she always has something that looks too wonderful to pass up! Thank you for always having such a variety of food!”

“I would like to thank you and your staff for helping to make our Annual Holiday Party a Great Success.  You did an Amazing job from the décor, the food and the service you provided! I have heard nothing but great comments. As always, I enjoyed working with you and your team.”

“I wanted to take this moment to thank you and your staff for making the Athletic Celebration absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough great things about the event. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. Thank you for your help from start to finish.”
