About Your Chef
Born into a big, loud, food-loving Italian family from the southside of Chicago, Dom Ruane grew up around the dinner table, so cooking professionally was a natural choice for him. After eight years of working in fine dining, and then restaurant management, private event catering, wedding cake design, and bread baking, he found a true culinary passion -- teaching others.
While Dom loves nothing more than to simply talk about food, he's found a passion for helping others learn the tools of the trade and how to create incredible meals in their own kitchens. Dom honed his teaching skills at The Social Table in Chicago, but recently relocated to Seattle to work as the Executive Chef at Table for 12 and as a recipe developer and on-camera chef for 12 Tomatoes.
