Troy Chandler at Honeysuckle Senior Living in Hayden, Idaho

Troy Chandler: Dining Services Director

Troy has cooked professionally for 27 years. He grew up in San Francisco idolizing the great chefs of public television. As a kid he would take the bus to Chinatown and Fisherman's Market to buy ingredients that he would then take and practice creating meals for his family. This opened the doors to his culinary path. After serving four years in the Army, he landed in Portland where he cooked with great chefs for more than a decade. This led him to opening and running restaurants from Portland to Las Vegas.

His love of the outdoors, hunting and the desire to start a family brought him to North Idaho where he created and ran a resort restaurant as well as being a personal chef for golfing and vacationing celebrities.

Now retired from the busy restaurant industry, Troy has found a new culinary passion: creating great meals and memories for amazing residents. Plus, he now has the time to enjoy all that North Idaho has to offer with his family!
