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

“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.”

“I hope you do the food service in heaven.”

“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 just wanted to send a quick note acknowledging the wonderful food and service provided by our new vendor.  The food was delicious and the students consistently commented on how amazing everything was.  What a difference! In addition, the staff and management were so easy to deal with – very professional.  They were punctual, responsive and attentive to our needs.  Thank you again for making a positive change to the quality of life of our students.”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“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 a note to let you know that you ROCK! You always pour yourself into [The] Webb [Schools] to make the dining experience the very best it can be. I’ve been hearing such positive things about the food quality this year – something I hope you feel really good about. And it is times like this with the Coronavirus that leaders truly emerge. You have been unbelievably accommodating in making last minute changes to how we serve, etc. and all else we do in the dining hall and I just want you to know how much I deeply appreciate your devotion to this special community. You are a key part of it – you model beautifully the very best of Webb. So thank you!!”

“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.”

“We are so thankful and so impressed by your immediate attention to our power outage. It was such a relief to see all the equipment and workers coming in within a few hours of the outage. Thank you for serving dinner to all [the] students in a very difficult circumstance. Please extend our thanks to your workers who braved cold weather to grill hamburgers and hotdogs.”

“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.”
