Born in Ukraine, Vladimir Zenkin began his culinary career as a chef in the navy. Through this experience, his aspiration to become a prominent chef developed at a young age. His passion for creating a memorable culinary experience comes from a desire to combine high-quality ingredients with personal and unique recipes. Since moving to Los Angeles in 1993, he has held an Executive Chef role at top restaurants, where he continues to innovate recipes and bring his passion for food for each individual to experience on their plate. As the Culinary Directory of the Los Angeles Athletic Club, he is continuously inspired to bring members a meal that incorporates a new essence with a traditional aspect, which corresponds accordingly with LAAC as an establishment. Vladimir’s philosophy of creating an authentic, fresh and elegant meal continuously fuels his culinary passion.--   

Chef Miro's culinary journey started out in his early childhood in his grandmother's kitchen, where he would spend his free time helping his grandparents cultivate their garden and tend to the livestock. He could often be found next to his grandma cooking family favorites, preparing preservatives, and curing meats. While Miro loved the tranquility afforded by rural life in Armenia, he soon realized that it would also be the roadblock preventing him from realizing his full potential as a chef. This led him to immigrate to Los Angeles, where he could learn and hone his craft by working alongside some of the most talented chefs in the world. In the last decade, his drive, exuberance, and passion for gastronomy has been a tremendous asset that has propelled him from working as a kitchen porter for a small family restaurant to his current position as the Sous Chef for the L.A. Athletic Club.
