Chef Bio

Chef Kyle Peterson discovered an interest in food while spending time in the kitchen with his grandmother. As a chef, he loves creating elevated versions of dishes that remind him of those experiences cooking with her. After participating in a part time culinary education program during high school, he further honed his skills while attending the Culinary Arts program at the Art Institute of Seattle.

Kyle began his career with Tom Douglas Restaurants as a cook at Seatown before moving over to become sous-chef with Adrienne Chamberlain and then Sam Burkhart at Etta’s. In February of 2017, Kyle was able to move up to Palace Kitchen as sous-chef under Chef Nate Crave. Kyle credits Nate with affording him the space and tutelage to help develop his own unique style of cooking, which he employs now as Chef of Palace Kitchen.

Kyle lives in Edmonds, WA, with his wife, two kids, two dogs, two cats and a back yard full of chickens. An avid horror film collector, he puts on annual scary movie marathons for his family and friends. When he isn’t cooking, Kyle loves spending time outdoors with his family, hunting and fishing.
