Meet The Chef

 

Chris DiMaio moved to Montana in the fall of 1999 and took his first chef position at the legendary Northern Lights Saloon. Throughout the winters in the Flathead Valley, DiMaio worked at various restaurants gaining experience through hands-on learning and a growing passion for cooking.

3Forks4654Chris then went to work under Andy Blanton at Cafe Kandahar as a sous chef. It was here he honed his skills and learned to appreciate the beauty of food and at the same time discovering an aptitude for the craft. DiMaio’s Sicilian influence is obvious throughout the seasonal menus he creates, and he has a way of preserving the old while embracing the new with thoughtful combinations and textures.

With a Bachelors Degree in Biology, DiMaio has always had a love for science and nature. As an avid forager, he collects everything from wild mushrooms to wild nettles in his time off while incorporating them into his daily specials. DiMaio is also a passionate gardener at home, supplying his fresh herbs and edible flowers to the restaurant. A growing interest in fermentation techniques and characters has led to new and tasty products being produced in the Three Forks Grille kitchen.
