BIO: Chef Nate Appleman attended the Culinary Institute of America before he began his internship at Cincinnati’s Maisonette under Chef Jean Robert de Cavel. By 1999 he was working at Brasa in Seattle and started growing a passion for butchery and curing. For the next six months, he lived in Florence, Italy sampling the rustic, local dishes and learning the art of salumi and gaining a deep appreciation for the region’s cuisine and ingredients.
Upon Nate’s return to the States, he began overseeing the meat station at Campton Place under Laurent Manrique. Soon, renovations closed Campton Place so Nate Appleman was moved to Sylvan Portay at the Dining Room Ritz-Carlton before moving to Napa Valley to attend pastry school. In 2003 he was named Executive Sous Chef at a San Francisco restaurant called A16.
He eventually was named Chef de Cuisine and part-owner of A16 and earned certification by the Verace Pizza Napoletana Association—one of the few certified pizzaiolos in the U.S.
Nate Appleman then made a surprise move to the Mexican chain, Chipotle and can be seen working the line at the Manhattan test kitchen in Chelsea. Nate Appleman made an appearance on Chopped All-Stars on the Food Network, was named Rising Star Chef from the James Beard Association and is available for speaking engagements, cooking demonstrations and hosting.
