Executive Chef Justin Dallinger has been a member of the Kingsmill family for over 15 years, coming to us as an extern from the Pennsylvania Institute of Culinary Arts Pittsburgh and evolving into the leader of our entire culinary brigade. His expansive knowledge of all areas of service in the resort gives him an unparalleled foundation, and the unique ability to develop the internal structure of our dining operations and food programs. His initial focus will be building up and redefining the standard of culinary excellence around the property.
Chef Justin has been passionate about food since childhood and has spent his entire career in the kitchen, starting out as a dishwasher in the small tourist town of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He believes in fundamental cuisine; knowing where your food comes from, respecting your ingredients, and doing simple things well. His education over the years here at Kingsmill have provided him with not only a furthered love of cooking, but also a great appreciation for the industry’s tradition of mentorship, community involvement, and environmental awareness, which he looks forward to sharing with his brigade and his guests.
