Chef Sockrider has had an impressive career; he began his career mentoring under a chef formally trained, and a master in his own right, in the art of Haute Cuisine. Upon discovering his passion for the culinary arts at such an early age, Guy Sockrider began perfecting his technique toward this style of culinary philosophy. He decided to be taught by other culinary masters that revered this philosophy as well. On his path of education he also was trained in the arts of Nouvelle Cuisine and regional American Cuisine as well as Creole Cuisine. Chef Sockrider has over 30 years of experience. Before accepting the appointment at The Bourbon Orleans, he has held a position of Executive Chef for the second largest hotel in Orange County, California, which accommodated guests to maximum capacity with 402 rooms. Chef Sockrider supervised approximately 4400 meals per day from an Haute French Restaurant, a classical Japanese Restaurant, a 24-hour cafe, large-scale banquets, and room service. Guy has also held the position of Executive Chef in San Diego, in one of California's most revered restaurants, generating  8.4 M in annual sales revenue. This venture was a formal, contemporary French restaurant with a second outlet serving contemporary California cuisine.
