Chef Stephen Thompson

For Chef Stephen Thompson, the art of preparing food is more than just a job or even a passion—it’s a way of life. Thompson has spent almost his entire life in the kitchen, and this is where he feels the most at home. “I don’t have any worries there,” he says. “I just focus on what needs to be done.”

With a culinary degree from the Art Institute of Charleston and years of hands-on experience in a variety of different kitchens and atmospheres, he is excited to be the Executive Chef at Dashi, where he has been able to really let his creativity shine.
