Chef Christopher Carriker

A seasoned expert in a variety of cuisines and sustainable modern dining practices, Christopher Carriker is responsible for all culinary operations and development at AVANT. After receiving high regard and notoriety in a number of acclaimed Portland restaurants over the last two decades, the Puget Sound native relocated to California, bringing with him a wealth of knowledge in fine dining and promotional events. Inspired by the large-scale family dinners prepared by his mother during his childhood, Christopher found his passion for the kitchen at an early age and displays his unique style in the vibrant, innovative dishes he brings to the table everyday.
