Additionally, he is a Certified Hospitality Educator. Chef Kahlenberg began his cooking career in his hometown of Wollongong, Australia, where he learned the trade of hospitality and restaurant and hotel management. After moving to the United States and graduating from the CIA, he worked at the famed Café des Artistes in New York City, the Commander’s Palace in Las Vegas, the Michelin-starred restaurants of Bradley Ogden and Daniel Boulud, and then became the chef de cuisine of Society Café at Wynn Resorts. After several years at Society Café, Chef Kahlenberg took the position of senior restaurant consultant and corporate chef for Blau + Associates, where he worked on projects for the Edgewater Casino, River Cree Resort and Casino, Turning Stone Resort Casino, and more.
