About The Chef

Reino Cruz, a native to the San Francisco Bay Area, has been following his culinary journey for nearly 20 years. After feeding tens of thousands in both restaurants & special events in Northern California, the last decade has been primarily focused on cooking in the music industry for touring artists. 

Raised in a household of multiple ethnicities, cuisines from both his mother’s Filipino heritage, and his father’s Mexican upbringing, can be found influencing his creations.

In addition to cooking on tours for artists such as SIA, Linkin Park, & Motley Crue, he has also cooked abroad as yacht chef of the luxury M/Y Triple Net, during its time in the Turks & Caicos and Bahamas. His ability to adapt & embrace local ingredients with his upbringing & training came to fruition when he was called upon to appear and compete multiple times on Guy Fieri’s “Guys Grocery Games” on television’s Food Network.
