Originally from Milwaukee, Chef Patrick McCormick was busy earning his degree at UW-Madison when he stumbled upon his ultimate career in a kitchen. In his own words, "I was planning on being a hydrogeologist, but I lost myself in the kitchen and I haven't found my way out." Since then, he has had the opportunity to work with and learn from a diverse group of Madison chefs at establishments including Tornado, Nostrano, Muramoto, and most recently the Heritage Tavern.

Over the past decade, Patrick has refined his culinary skills through practicing varied techniques and cuisines, however, he is always drawn to fresh, seasonal Wisconsin flavors. Even when he is not in his kitchen whites, Patrick can often be found grinding up his own batch of homemade brats, shaping loaves of sourdough bread, or foraging for morels in the springtime.
