I would consider my forte being modern-French cuisine; however having Jamaican and Trinidadian parents, I find myself gravitating towards trying to modernize West Indian Cuisine due to my heritage.

Carneros Resort and Spa
Executive Sous Chef



Sean Streete became the Executive Sous Chef of Carneros Resort & Spa in 2017. A longtime resident of the Bay Area, Sean had extensive experience in California’s wine country before coming to Carneros. Upon completion of his Associates Degree in the Culinary Arts from Le Cordon Bleu in Miami, Florida, Sean was given the opportunity to work for Chef DeJuan Roy of the illustrious '95 Cordova' in St. Augustine, Florida. After returning to the Napa wine country Sean spent time in some of the West Coast’s finest kitchens, including as Chef de Partie at Chef Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bistro in Yountville; as Sous Chef at Iron Chef's Morimoto in Napa; as Sous Chef at Michelin-Starred Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford; and then as a Sous Chef at one of the world's most prestigious destinations, Michelin-Starred Meadowood Napa Valley. Having worked for multiple Michelin-Starred restaurants, Sean has cultivated relationships with local farmers and established regionally inspired menus all whilst honing his craft. Besides numerous awards and accolades, Sean has yearned for the modernizing of the cuisines that represent those of his West Indian heritage. He uses a blend of both classic French and modern molecular gastronomical cooking techniques while continuing to place primary emphasis on sourcing the best ingredients. He describes his food as “modern-French” due to his organic approach to preparing food which reflects his respect for the growing seasons, ensuring that every herb, fruit and vegetable is consumed at its peak. This attention to detail results in a complex combination of flavors and textures that enliven the character of each dish. Working at Carneros has solidified Sean’s foundation of sustainability and respect for local products. All of which has been further enhanced with having the Carneros garden readily available. Sean has continued his dedication to social responsibility by “employing, feeding and supporting” his local community. He believes that mentoring the young cooks of the future should be the primary goal of the established Chefs of today.
