Co-Chefs/Owners, Dutch & Company, Richmond, VA
Phillip Perrow is a born and bred Richmond, Virginia native. With more of “unique” food memories at the dinner table, Phillip quickly learned the importance of his way around the kitchen. And, after a truly monumental culinary dining experience as a teenager, he was hooked. Achieving a culinary degree from Johnson & Wales, he knew Richmond was where he wanted to make his culinary mark. With longtime mentor Dale Reitzer of Acacia Restaurant, Phillip for more than a decade, worked from intern, to cook, and finally to Sous Chef, and learned the ins and outs of any and all seafood.
For Chef Caleb Shriver, food has always been a means of gathering, a way to bring family and friends together. An Oklahoma native, with fond memories of his mother's southwest cooking, comprised of family that caught and hunted fish and game, it wasn't long before a fascination with food began to form. Completing a unique culinary apprentice program with Chef Kurt Flieschfresser at the late The Coach House, and with a hunger for more knowledge, he made his foray into the culinary field, by way of Chicago, Naperville, and finally Richmond, Virginia.
Today, as co-chefs/owners of Dutch & Company, they have set their sights and focus to not only better feed Richmond, but to pass on their culinary knowledge to those who work with them. Always, remembering the power and importance of a shared meal.
