Head Chef, Old Salt Supperhouse
Chef Schade has been with us since day one, and remains the backbone of our Supperhouse. After studying culinary art at Oregon Culinary Institute he worked in some of Portland's finest kitchens. He worked at the famed Castagna, under then chef Elias Cairo (Olympia Provisions), and served as Sous Chef at Belly restaurant, under Cameron Addy (Ava Gene's, King Leroy), before working his way through the kitchen at Jenn Louis' Lincoln Restaurant. During his time at Lincoln he spent two years as Chef de Cuisine, managing menu and staff, helping build the James Beard recognized restaurants' reputation. He left Lincoln to join us in opening Old Salt.
His beautiful menu highlights the freshest ingredients with an unyielding commitment to the farmers who are growing the absolute best vegetables, alongside hearth-grilled steaks and chops from our butchershop. He also happens to be the nicest guy on the planet. We couldn't do it without him.
