New Sonoma State Chef Alexandre Purroy

Chef Alexandre Purroy, formerly of Doce Lunas Restaurant in Kenwood, has taken over the kitchens of Sonoma State.

Students, faculty and Green Music Center attendees have come to expect serious Wine Country cuisine from the educational institution since the arrival of Food Network personality Eric Lee upped the school’s culinary ante in 2013.

Lee left last August, but Purroy seems well suited to handle the big shoes, having spent most of his career in large hotel kitchens throughout the world. We’re looking forward to seeing how he’ll change up the menus.
