Two words sum up Exec. Pastry Chef Stephen Smith’s philosophy on pastries: Fresh Baked. Before coming to Thunder, Stephen dazzled palates at Alexis Park in Las Vegas & the Embassy Suites Maui. Today, he makes sure that every dinner roll, Danish & wedding cake is as enjoyable to look at as it is to eat.

Andres Moncada has made cooking for others his life’s passion. In his teens, he washed dishes at a Chicago steakhouse, but watched and learned all the other stations in his off-hours, and eventually was promoted to a cook. A native of Mexico, he came west to be nearer to family and ran the kitchen at Denny’s, earning awards for cleanliness and sales. On a tip from a friend, he got in at Thunder Valley as a cook’s helper, and once again worked his way up - to Assistant Executive Chef in the Buffet.
Room Chef Greg Schneider specializes in International comfort food with a high-end twist. With more than a decade of service for Thunder Valley's culinary team, Greg delivers on guest satisfaction, creative flavor profiles, and unsurpassed service.
