Chef Scott Drewno of The Source shares his favorite bites in the Capital City!
Scott Drewno was raised in the heart of New York’s Finger Lakes wine region, a rural area known for its vineyards and its family owned farms. Watching his mother turn fresh, seasonal produce from local farm stands into bubbling pies and cobblers first piqued his interest in cooking and planted the seed for Drewno’s culinary ambition.
Drewno joined the Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group in 1998. He started as a line cook at Chinois in Las Vegas, where he melded French cooking practices with Asian flavors and ingredients. After a series of rapid promotions, Drewno was named Executive Sous Chef at Spago, Wolfgang Puck’s celebrated Las Vegas restaurant known for its seasonal American cuisine and celebrity clientele.
In January 2007, Drewno returned to the Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group to serve as Executive Chef of The Source, the company’s first restaurant in the nation’s capital.
Most recently, Drewno was invited to be a guest chef at The White House, preparing a special lunch for 150 dignitaries and employees.
