Chef Greg Frey
Greg Frey’s culinary career began at the Charleston Grill in Charleston, SC where, under the tutelage of Executive Chef Bob Wagner and Executive Sous Chef Michelle Weaver, he quickly rose through the ranks, eventually earning a trip to stage at Le Bougainvillier in St Galmier, in France. Frey moved to Bernardus Lodge in Carmel Valley where he learned how to “cook from the farm”. Next came San Diego when he landed at Pamplemousse Grille as Executive Sous Chef in 2010; the position of Chef de Cuisine at La Costa resort for Bluefire Grill followed a year later.
Today, Frey is the Executive Chef at the Golden Door in Escondido, CA. He works to achieve the ultimate in spa cuisine: food that is nutritious and delicious. Greg’s culinary background has been focused on providing a healthy mindful presentation and building a strong food sourcing base with relationships with local farmers, fisherman and ranches. The focus is on sustenance rather than deprivation.
