Ricardo is a self-taught cook. In 2016, he came on to the Recovery Unplugged team under our prior Executive Chef. During this apprenticeship, Ricardo richly expanded his skills in all areas of the culinary arts as well as vegan and vegetarian meals, bread making, and preparing meals for clients with specific dietary needs. We are pleased to say Ricardo is now our Executive Chef and provides all our clients well-balanced, highly nutritional meals during their stay with us. Ricardo has been in recovery since November of 2015 and uses his experience to relate to and help our clients. Ricardo’s three biggest passions in life are music, cooking, and helping others. He is privileged to combine those passions here and is a valuable member of our team.
