Alex, Executive Chef

Hello,

My name is Alex Long. I am very proud to become a part of The Learning Gardens family. I am a graduate of Johnson & Wales University’s culinary program and am Servsafe certified. I have been in the culinary industry for over twenty years, most of which in New York City. Through the course of my professional travels, I have had the pleasure of cooking for the most high-end clientele. It is now my pleasure to be able to offer your child and mine delicious and nutritious meals at The Learning Gardens. Growing up as a picky eater and now having one of my own, I know firsthand the challenge of getting little ones to eat a diverse diet. It is my hope that I will be able to provide life adventures through food for your child by offering a myriad of different cuisines. Please know that I will take great care in any restrictions or allergies that your child has. Feel free to contact me to discuss your child’s particular needs or modifications.

“Investing in early childhood nutrition is a surefire strategy. The returns are incredibly high.”  Anne M. Mulcahy (C.E.O. of Xerox)
