West Shore's Culinary Team

Manuel Baez - Chef De Cuisine

West Shore Café & Inn would like to introduce Chef Manuel “Manny” Baez as our new Chef De Cuisine. Chef Manny comes to us from the east coast by way of Williamsport Pa. Prior to joining the West Shore culinary team, Chef Manny gained much of his culinary inspiration from his father by spending many nights creating memorable meals for the whole family. As a result, Manny passed up a future in collegiate soccer to attend the Pennsylvania College of Technology for Culinary Arts. Chef Manny honed his culinary skills with Local Chef Kevin Nash Chef/Owner of 33 East. He also had the chance to work with Chef Gavin Kaysen, renowned New York City Chef that oversaw Café Boulud, one of many restaurants owned by Chef Daniel Boulud. This experience eventually led him to begin a 3 year working relationship with our very own Executive Chef, Kristi Ritchey. Under Chef Kristi’s tutelage, Chef De Cuisine Manny Baez will bring a modern, contemporary, East coast style to Old Tahoe comfort food.
