SEASONAL. LOCAL. CREATIVE. These words fully define the passion and characteristics that guide Executive Chef Santana Diaz at UC Davis Health. Chef Diaz’ vision has always been to bring a true Farm-to-Fork, restaurant-style culinary experience to all facets of every food venue that he has had the privilege to lead. Chef Diaz has recently joined the UC Davis Health team after setting up and executing the new Golden 1 Center food program with the most successful farm-to-fork production in sports. His drive to create an impactful program via healthcare intrigued him and offered him more opportunity to impact the local farming and rancher community. His experience with fine dining restaurants, hotel management in the California Bay Area coupled with large volume sports and entertainment have yielded Diaz the opportunity to bring the high-volume “eats” to a healthier platform while not losing most important aspect of the meals: TASTE.
