CHEF CAMERON GRANT

Cameron Grant has excelled in creating food and managing kitchens over the last 15 years, starting with his University cafeteria. Within 5 years he became an executive chef of Laudisio, a family-run Italian restaurant in Boulder, Colorado. The Laudisio family provided the opportunity for Cameron to stage at Michelin-starred La Ciau Del Tornavento in the Barbaresco zone of Piemonte, Italy. Here, he gained essential respect for the Italian food culture and fell in love with the unique way of life.

Five years after his stage at La Ciau Del Tornavento, Cameron moved back to Treiso, Italy to open his own restaurant, moving with his wife and golden Labrador. As an enthusiastic Scottish-American chef, he sparked the interest of many by opening a fine dining Osteria in the heart of wine country. Surrounded by Michelin-starred chefs, he fought to give the locals something they had never seen, while incorporating local ingredients into his culturally diverse menu. Ultimately selling his share of the restaurant to his partner, Cameron moved back to the U.S. to be closer to his family while seeking a new adventure. In 2012, Cameron was recruited by the Intercontinental Hotel in Rosemont to open their signature Mediterranean restaurant, Fresco 21. After 2 years of running the operation, Cameron found an opportunity to open Osteria Langhe with new-found friend Aldo Zanninoto, in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago.
