Gamble Creek Farms is at the heart of many of Chiles Hospitality’s environmental initiatives. Compost from the restaurants is taken to the farm to be converted to nutrient rich soil, which then helps grow the delicious produce that’s then returned to the restaurant kitchens. Closing the food loop through our sustainable farming methods, promoting other like-minded local farms in our market, and nurturing our bond with the surrounding community are all crucial to our mission.
Will Manson has been Executive Chef of the Beach House since 1999, moving over to General Manager of Gamble Creek Farms in 2022.
He received his first classical training from Chef Jean Pierre Knaggs, owner of the popular Bijou Cafe in downtown Sarasota. Will was given the opportunity to attend the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY.
His experience in boutique restaurants combined with the discipline of large restaurant companies like the Outback Steakhouse Corporation and Darden along with the immense responsibility of serving thousands of guests at a time through the Orange County Convention Center makes Will in a word - "seasoned".
