Chef Tyler Stone, who graduated from culinary school at the age of 13, will be among the participants in the Wine Rendezvous Grand Tasting & Chef Showcase as part of Wine & Food Week. Stone is such an expert with wine, he demonstrates, with help from FOX 26 News anchor Melissa Wilson, how to prepare liquid nitrogen wine ice cream using a method known as molecular gastronomy.
At the age of eighteen, Chef Stone published his first cookbook, “The Kids Cooking,” which shares his love of food. His book can be viewed and purchased from his website along with his knife and gourmet food line.
Chef Stone served as the food writer for the Sacramento Union newspaper and is currently the culinary writer for House2Home magazine. One of his future goals is to have his own syndicated television cooking show.
Many of the notable individuals and celebrities Chef Stone has cooked for included the Maloof family of the Palms Casino & Resort, musician John Tesh, and the band The Doobie Brothers. He also prepared a special dinner for Vice President and Mrs. Cheney at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C. His expertise allows him to prepare a variety of dishes from appetizers to desserts, though he really enjoys multi-course meals best because of the attention to detail and his ability to be extremely creative.
Chef Stone’s inspiration comes from great chefs as well from his family, friends, and his local surroundings.
Asked why he enjoys cooking, Chef Stone compares it to preparing a multi-course meal. “Even though each course is unique, added together, the whole meal provides a feeling of wholeness, satisfaction, and fulfillment.”
