To have a regular day on the job would be boring for Chef Jose Fernandez.
As the culinary mastermind behind Terra, the fine-dining restaurant located at the Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado Santa Fe, there are always daily challenges.
Despite many of them, Fernandez navigates them with precision and communication.
“Building a great team is important,” he says. “But it’s the communication that remains the foundation. This is what makes everything successful.”
Fernandez is also the type of chef who immerses himself not only into his creations, but in finding incredible value in local ingredients.
It’s not uncommon to find him at the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market twice a week to find the local flavors that will give his culinary creations an edge.
