Meet The Chef
Rob Mason has always been passionate about food. From the beginning he has prided himself on providing guests with an extraordinary experience they would always remember.
Classically trained at The Art Institute of Philadelphia, Rob has worked almost every position in the kitchen. With extensive experience as a personal chef, as well as a lead banquet chef in such prestigious hotels as The Grand Wailea and Montage, Kapalua, Rob’s latest endeavor is as a private chef for hire on Maui. He specializes in pasta, seafood and local Pacific Rim cuisine. Rob is eager to provide you with an unforgettable culinary event in your home or condo.
With his strong commitment to providing guests with an authentically local and sustainable dining experience, Chef Rob is consistently building strong relationships with regional farmers, artisans and purveyors and making lasting contributions to the Maui community.
What I love most about my job is creating an experience for my guests. I love watching their reaction to flavor combinations. Food brings back memories and creates them. And I’m lucky enough to be a part of that!
Recently, Chef Rob partnered with the American Heart Association in their culinary mentorship program called Kids Cook with Heart. The program is designed to teach local students from Lahaina Intermediate School and Lahainaluna High School the basic cooking skills so they can prepare food for themselves and their families. Junior high and high school students get to participate in this mentorship program at their schools as Chef Rob helps to inspire dozens of future chefs to hone their skills and harness their creative talents in the culinary arts.
Chef Rob currently resides in Lahaina with his wife, Ami and their French Bulldog, Riley.
