Chef de Cuisine of the Marine Room Restaurant

Chef Ron Oliver travels to far reaches of the world in search of culinary inspiration. But back in his home kitchen, he seeks out the finest local, natural, and fresh ingredients to star in his tasty creations. A tireless globetrotter from an early age, Ron’s unique talent is to blend the exotic ingredients found on his travels into signature dishes that surprise and delight the palate.

His first cookbook, the celebrated Flying Pans, nominated for Cookbook of the Year, illustrates Chef Ron's fine balance between ethnic discovery and culinary sophistication. As Chef de Cuisine at the prestigious Marine Room in La Jolla, California, Ron has led his talented team to eight titles as Best Restaurant in San Diego.

Chef Ron is an avid supporter of locally grown, organic food products and sustainable agriculture. “A farmer can pick vegetables out of the ground in the morning, deliver them to our door in the afternoon, and they are on the table being shared and talked about that evening.”  Chef Ron’s passion for food and cooking expands to support local schools and to help young people learn about food literacy by planting sustainable gardens.  “I try to teach today’s children that the earth will take care of us so long as we take care of it.  That is a very basic idea that is easy for them to engage.”

Chef Ron preaches that whether you cook at home or in a professional kitchen, the most important ingredient in any dish is your personal touch
