Vladimir Alvarez

Sous Chef

I was born in El Salvador and grew up there. I studied Chemistry and Pharmacy, but when I moved to this country in 2005 my life changed and I started my culinary career. It has not been easy. I started from the bottom and I have been growing every day in this beautiful profession. I have worked in many establishments in the Monterey Peninsula area for over 17 years.

The art of cooking implies time, passion, creativity, discipline, consistency and much more, but most importantly love. Every day of these 17 years that have passed I have learned different cooking techniques from different people from different backgrounds. I am always willing to learn something new. Now, I have the opportunity to be a part of this great team at Foray. My main goal is to make meals so that when each person who tastes them, they enjoy every single bite that they take and come back again. I crave to grow and gain knowledge from everyone around me.
