Logan Stephenson Named Executive Chef at Sedona’s Kimpton Amara Resort and Spa

There’s a new executive chef leading the charge at SaltRock Southwest Kitchen in Sedona at Kimpton Amara Resort and Spa, and he’s looking to draw inspiration from his upbringing to bring more local fare to the menu.

Born and raised in a small town in Louisiana, Logan Stephenson grew up hunting and fishing for his food, but slowly got away from that as his career advanced in more metropolitan areas. Now in Sedona, Logan is ready to reembrace the slower pace of life and take a foraged approach by partnering with local wineries, fisheries and farmers to bring more indigenous ingredients to the SaltRock cuisine (new menu coming this spring!).

Logan’s dedication and natural talent for his craft has led him to a number of opportunities on the West Coast. From making his way to the San Francisco Bay Area to explore ingredient-driven inspiration at Osteria Locanda to developing the pasta program at FiAMMA Trattoria in Phoenix, Logan most recently served as the Chef de Cuisine at Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails at Kimpton Hotel Palomar Phoenix.

Chef Logan took over the SaltRock kitchen in November and has already started making incremental changes and he expects to roll out a new spring menu come March.
