Justin Cogley was appointed chef de cuisine of Aubergine restaurant in January 2011, where he oversees Aubergine and all of LAuberge Carmels culinary programs.
Cogley comes to Carmel by way of Chicago, Illinois, where he was instrumental in opening the Elysian Hotels new kitchen as executive sous chef. He previously worked at Charlie Trotters critically acclaimed restaurant for four years, claiming the position of chef de cuisine for the last two. As such, he was responsible for menu creation, special events, and extensive instruction and management of the culinary staff.
With delicate interplay between creativity, tradition, and respect for his ingredients, Cogleys food is deeply unique. His style is a sophisticated balance between innovation and unwavering deference for the finest ingredients he procures. If I had to describe my food, Cogley says, I would say each plate has a purpose. Cogleys goal is to inspire guests to enjoy a broad combination of flavors and textures. He may present a diner with a vegetable prepared three ways on his plate but, Cogley says, each of the flavors will be unique and pure.
Prior to his career as a chef, Cogley was a professional international figure skater performing with Disney on Ice. Traveling and touring with the show for four years in Asia, Australia and Europe, Cogley was exposed to new flavors and cuisines, as well as a myriad of food markets and international techniques. These culinary experiences confirmed his passion for food, travel, and good wine, and when he returned to the United States, he enrolled at the Western Culinary Institute and began working in select restaurants in Portland, Oregon. After graduating with top honors in 2005, he launched his culinary career on the team at Charlie Trotters.
