Craig Stoll has been the chef/owner of the Delfina Restaurant group since 1998. He combines his love for Italian cuisine, fostered in the early years of his career, with the best that the Bay Area has to offer, creating restaurants that offer not only exceptional food but a true sense of place.
Craig was named Best Chef: Pacific and Rising Star Chef by the James Beard Foundation, as well as Best New Chef by Food & Wine. Never one to rest on his laurels, Craig is consistently focused on ensuring that the next generation of cooks is being trained to really understand the ways of the kitchen. In his regular appearances in the SFCS kitchens he tells students that while the kitchen is “hot and hard”, there are things to learn everywhere you look. Craig is a stellar example of a chef who never stops learning.
