Chef Craig Strong, whose 25+ year career in luxury hotels and resorts earned him a Michelin star during his time at The Langham Huntington Hotel & Spa in Pasadena, has come full circle to his native Southern California roots. Chef Strong previously held the title of Executive Chef at the prestigious Studio at Montage in Laguna Beach for nine years. From the coasts of California to Washington, DC and Barcelona to Hong Kong, Chef Strong has cooked all over the world. His dishes draw inspiration from the culture and cuisine that make these places unique. From growing up in San Diego and cooking with produce from the family garden, Chef Strong has been sharing his coastal California cuisine with the community he has embraced for the past decade. Formerly at Studio at Montage and Ocean at Main, Chef Strong is now the executive chef at both Hotel Laguna and Terra.
