Meet the Chef
Chef Alberto Sierra
Years in the kitchen: 10+
Background: I’m a native Columbian and came to the United States in 1993. I couldn't find a job because of the language barrier, so I started working in restaurants as a dishwasher. I began learning from the chefs and eventually worked my way up the ladder as a sous chef then executive chef.
Education: Business Administration at the Universidad del Norte
Family: Married with 5 children
Favorite Dish at River Rocks: 8oz. Filet or the Seafood Mediterranean
Cooking Philosophy: Love and passion should go into every dish, and always use fresh ingredients. I want to impress everyone I cook for!
Creative Inspiration: I get inspiration from the different seasons. I’m always researching and looking for new ingredients to bring to life in a dish.
Passions outside the kitchen: First is my family, but I love running. I am currently training for a marathon. I also enjoy cycling and most outdoor activities.
