Christian FischerDaniel Barash
Vice President of Culinary, Chartwells Higher Education Dining Services

As Vice President of Culinary for Chartwells Higher Education Dining Services, I am proud to lead the team responsible for satisfying adventurous palates on campuses across the country by delivering fresh, innovative, flavorful dining experiences every day. With more than twenty years of culinary experience, I'm fueled by my belief that every meal matters. That's why my team thrives on combining high quality ingredients and expert culinary techniques to create delicious meals our guests enjoy each and every time.

Chartwells' seasoned culinarians are passionate about what they do. From interacting with students by preparing global cuisine before their eyes at concept stations, to chef demonstrations, culinary competitions and interactive cooking classes, our culinary teams are masters at understanding the use of seasonal ingredients and creating delicious cuisine for diverse appetites.

Chartwells is proud to play an exemplary role in advancing and promoting sustainability in collegiate dining as a model in the industry. From purchasing local, sustainably sourced products, to converting cooking oil to bio fuel, the visionary work of our culinary teams support efforts that go beyond the kitchen and bring positive change for a greater campus community.

As Chartwells campus dining operations focus on providing the highest quality, great tasting nutritious food to students, its teams also understand the special needs of guests with food ingredient allergies, religious meal requirements or other dietary restrictions and meet those special needs.
