James Boyd Signature Chef

As a part-time grill cook in high school, Chef James Boyd noticed how food made people happy. “I enjoyed the comments from customers who loved my food, and that’s when I knew I found my calling,” he says. In his medical center café, Chef James spends time in the serving area so he can continue his practice of listening; with a diverse population of guests, he strives to feature a great selection of regional and international foods. When crafting new recipes, he chooses fresh and local ingredients and uses colors, tastes and textures to create delicious, nutritious dishes.

"I like using different grains for texture and nutrition. "
