about chef amber
When an opening at the restaurant came available in late 2010 for head chef at 23Hoyt, Amber grew up from Southern California with her knives, some special ingredients and a chef coat to try out …and blew us away. She moved to Portland and took the helm at 23Hoyt in December 2010. Amber Webster earned an Associate of Science in Culinary Arts degree from the California Culinary Academy Le Cordon Bleu in San Francisco. After graduating, Amber moved to San Diego to study and work in some of the cities finest restaurants. Her approach to food is to apply skill and restraint, use locally grown, seasonal ingredients to create unpretentious yet elegant dishes that are deeply satisfying and always delicious.
