Spa Cuisine with a Fresh Twist

Spa-influenced, farm-to-table cuisine has arrived at Atlantic Shores with the recent addition of our new Executive Chef Kyle Pafford.

Known for his distinctive, healthy dishes that push the envelope of flavor using fresh, organic ingredients, Kyle’s career includes positions at top spas and wellness retreats across the country, and culinary experiences from around the world.

He has also produced his own yogurts and fermented vegetables, and shared his expertise in organic cooking classes and “Pop Up Farm to Fork dinners” featuring farm produce and meats. He even had a stint as Cheese maker where he created a series of seasonal cheeses!

Through his training and travels, Kyle learned to prepare food with a healthy ‘less, is more’ style — letting the food speak for itself instead of covering it up with multiple ingredients. He enjoys using fresh, in-season products that also help support local farmers.

Chef Pafford continues to experiment with a variety of different cooking styles, using fresh, local ingredients to create simple, upscale offerings. Residents and guests at Atlantic Shores are treated daily to his creative innovative seasonal menus and daily specials including fine-dining vegan and vegetarian entrees.
