Chef Eugene Santiago has spent most of his culinary career cooking under the guidance of Chef Kerry Simon, who gave him his first break out of culinary school at Simon Kitchen & Bar inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. He then followed Kerry Simon back to Los Angeles to open Simon L.A. and eventually Carson Kitchen in Las Vegas and Simon Kitchen + Bar in Palm Springs. In between this time of his life, he also had the opportunity of working at Mar’sel, the fine dining restaurant inside the Terranea Resort, where he mentored under Chef Michael Fiorelli. With experience under his belt, Eugene took on the role of helping his friend open up 3 concepts at the Westfield Santa Anita and helming the kitchen at one of them, Monkey Bar, as the Executive Chef. After his departure from Westfield, he reignited his true passion project called Baryo, which is a monthly pop-up showcasing his talent for cooking dishes with Filipino, Lao and Cambodian influences. Currently, Eugene also sells his popular coconut jam and made-from-scratch pan de sal bread under the Baryo brand and he has hopes to turn Baryo into a brick and mortar soon.

"I'm influenced by my surroundings," he says. "When I cook I work with the freshest, local, in-season ingredients. I change my menus regularly based on item availability and inspiration. You can never be the greatest chef in the world. You can only try to be better then you were the day before."
WholeSam began as a way to show people that home cooked food can be so much more fun, personal, enjoyable, connected, healthy, and sensational than eating out. There are certain rules at restaurants and establishments like, "you can't put this with that.." or you have to dress a certain way. But at home there are no boundaries. No rules. We all know how it feels to eat at home and I want to bring these special moments back with a touch of elegance.
My love for food made me pursue a career in cooking. I found myself cooking for friends, parties, family dinners, and anything that anyone would let me cater. It lead me on an incredible path to becoming a private chef for Ludacris and many A list celebrities.
The best part about cooking is that the more time I spend in the kitchen, the happier I am. I am a certified health coach as well so my nutrition brain is always thinking about making food nourishing. I strongly believe that you can be healthy and be a foodie at the same time. I prepare all my food with heart. And a lot of soul. Seeing people feel amazing in their bodies is the most rewarding part! I want all my clients to look and feel their best!
