About Executive Chef Chef Christopher Gallo
Chef Gallo has spent the last 10 years working on his own style of cooking and has brought that passion and joy to Master’s Kitchen and Cocktail in Oceanside, cooking up California casual comfort food with an artisan’s twist. Gallo has always had a love of food that started with his upbringing in a very New York Italian family that always gathered in the kitchen at the end of its day to spend time with one another. Moving to West Coast at the age of 11 brought Gallo to experience all that is California agriculture in its abundance of amazing food from the land and sea. “It is a true joy to be part of such a wonderful food community and to be surrounded by so many passionate people on a daily basis.”
Gallo has worked for some of the finest Chefs that San Diego has to offer. In 2006 he started as chef garde manger for Chef Stephane Voitzwinker at Bertrand at Mister A’s in downtown. He worked his way through countless stations over the next 3 1⁄2 years to become a lead line chef. He feels truly blessed to have had and continue to have a mentor and friend in Chef Voitzwinker. Gallo then went to learn from Chef Jeff Jackson at the Lodge at Torrey Pines in La Jolla. He spent over 3-1⁄2 years working many different positions for Chef Jackson including lead line chef for A.R Valentien, hotel butcher, and hotel saucier. Chef Jackson and Chef Voitzwinker truly helped Gallo find his own professional style and refinement in the kitchen.
