About Chef Lyon

Chef Nathan Lyon got a fresh outlook on cooking while backpacking through Europe; after stockpiling a massive amount of produce at a local market, an old woman asked

“Why are you buying so much food? Why not just buy fresh every day?”

These words of wisdom inspired Nathan not only in his cooking, but in his outlook on life.

In addition to using only the freshest and most natural ingredients in his signature dishes, his fresh perspective has earned him a Culinary Arts Degree from Le Cordon Bleu in Los Angeles, a wealth of time in (and out of) the kitchens of famous restaurants, and opportunities to work alongside local growers in California farmers markets for over a decade.

Chef Nathan Lyon is known to television audiences for his time as Chef and co-host of PBS’ Growing a Greener World and his top-four placement on the second season of Food Network’s The Next Food Network Star. He was also the creator and host of A Lyon in the Kitchen on Discovery Health and Fit TV. Chef Nathan has penned two books, a collection of his critically-acclaimed recipes, Great Food Starts Fresh, and a children’s book made in conjunction with his brother Craig, Sam the Clam.

Nathan has cooked for the Inspector General, cooked and spoken at numerous charity functions, and is one of the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s 2011 Sustainable Seafood Ambassadors.
