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.

To hear Seamus Collins tell it, food preparation is as much about its sensory appeal as it is the inspiration that went into its preparation. Seamus serves as Room Chef for The Buffet, after a tour of duty in the U.S. Navy, a BA in Culinary Arts from Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute, and working his way up the kitchen ladder through various restaurants and resorts. A Farm to Table disciple, he works daily to instill the vision of “food as art” in all dishes.
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.
Sous Chef Kyle Sloan brings more than a decade of food prep experience to The Buffet at Thunder Valley, having worked for celebrity chef Todd English as well as food truck legend Roy Choi.

Schooled in the culinary arts at the original Le Cordon Bleu in Portland, OR, Kyle specializes in mixology, charcuterie, offal, and blending traditions from other cultures into Western dining standards.
