A true Los Angeles native. He's cooked for thousands all over California -- from The Portofino Hotel and Yacht Club in Redondo Beach to the US Grant Hotel and The Ivy Hotel in San Diego. He's been featured on the Food Network as a finalist on Guy's Grocery Games and has been both a competitor and guest judge on Chef's Roll. He loves playing with ingredients, textures, and flavors...creating dishes that seem elaborate, but are really simple and delicious. He is the owner of Scratch Test Kitchen, a Private/Personal Chef, Custom Catering, Pop-Ups, Concept Development and Consulting service all rolled into one.
The goal of Scratch Test Kitchen is to change the culinary landscape for individuals and bring fun back into cooking -- something Chef Dorian believes has been missing for some time. Although all ingredients in Chef Dorian's dishes can be identified by guests, they still possess a WOW factor -- something that has been recognized by Food & Beverage Magazine and Great Taste Magazine. Chef Dorian's no-nonsense approach focuses on products that are both of high quality and in season, allowing the natural flavors to come through in his cooking.
