The Hideout Kitchen
Chef Mary Warren’s deep appreciation for varied cuisines was developed at a young age growing up with Southern influences from her father, and Latin influenced cuisine from her mother’s family. This passion was fueled by working in a small Italian restaurant at a very young age. Mary put her culinary career on hold to pursue a technical career in the Pharmaceutical industry but after 17 years of a successful career, she could not shake her passion for the kitchen.
Mary left her successful corporate career and moved home to Sarasota Florida where she spent two years at SCTI. She had the privilege of starting out her professional culinary career at The Colony Tennis and Beach Resort under Chef Jamil Pineda who taught her the true basics of fine dining.
Since then she has been fortunate enough to work at the prestigious Ocean Reef Club under the renowned Chef Phillipe Reynaud becoming a private chef for their elite members and clientele. She has cooked on the high seas in the South Pacific and remote lodges in the interior of Alaska. Through her worldwide travels and experiences she has become an accomplished chef in a variety of cuisines.
In 2015 Chef Mary Warren became the Executive Chef at the Hideout Lodge and Guest Ranch where her creativity and experience are an integral part of the Western fine dining dishes that are a trademark of The Hideout.
