VICE PRESIDENT OF CULINARY DEVELOPMENT
Chef Paul Basciano stems from a long line of butchers and restauranteurs who instilled in him a passion for food and excellence. He was born and raised in New York City, where his first introduction to the craft began at the early age of 12 when he would sweep floors at the neighborhood deli.
After attaining a degree in Strategic Sales and Marketing from New York’s Baruch School of Business, Paul opened three food-related businesses in New York: a catering and events business, a retail outlet and a full-service restaurant. He also enrolled in the prestigious French Culinary Institute to hone his craft and formalize his culinary education.
The Elior North America family of companies is fortunate to have talented Chefs across our brands that are committed to creating unique culinary experiences for the people they serve. They are passionate about food and how it impacts someone’s life.
