About Wil Crutchley
Wil Crutchley grew up in the coastal North Carolina town of Elizabeth City, and began working in restaurants at the age of 15. After graduating high school, he moved to Greensboro, N.C. working for the next two years in an upscale restaurant/bistro. He went on to attend the Art Institute of Atlanta, where he excelled in the AIA’s international culinary arts program.
During his tenure at the AIA, he was asked by Swissotel to be their head garde manger chef at their Atlanta property. Two and one-half years later, Wil was solicited by a French auberge to cook for a summer in their one star restaurant. This was an eye-opening experience. He spent an additional six weeks in Europe working as a personal chef and as a chef in a gastropub in Bournemouth, England.(917) 318-3184 Get in touch
