MEET THE CHEF
Brightwater Instructor Chef Vince Pianalto is originally from Springdale, Ark., and credits his parents and grandmother for being instrumental in his enthusiasm for cooking. As a curious child, he enjoyed working alongside them to learn how to cook.
Vince’s work experience includes being owner and chef of La Maison des Tartes in Fayetteville, owner and chef of Bouchee Bistro in Fayetteville, and owner and chef of Vicenza's Italian Restaurant, as well as the culinary coordinator for William Sonoma in Rogers and a culinary instructor for Springdale High School and Springdale public schools. Vince joined Brightwater in 2016.
“I love teaching my craft to other interested people. Brightwater allows me to do that for a wide variety of students, and I love the team I work with at Brightwater,” says Vince. “Also, working in such a fantastic environment and facility makes teaching so enjoyable.”
“I feel that Brightwater has opened up a new arena of instruction that is available to a large segment of NWA that wouldn't otherwise be possible,” adds Vince.
In his free time, Vince enjoys spending time with his dogs, gardening, traveling and cooking.
