Glenn Weddell

Alexandra Kicenik Devarenne

After a culinary degree, Glenn has served as Executive Chef for 30 years at many of Sacramento California’s finest dining establishments and even the personal chef to the Maloofs, former Sacramento Kings owners. Glenn’s services have been requested by many visiting celebrities from the Rolling Stones, Neil Diamond, and even President Bill Clinton. In 2007 Glenn took the Corporate Chef position with Mani Imports, the second largest Greek olive oil and olive importer in the USA. His work in developing and locating new food products has provided extensive travel through Europe. The UC Davis Olive center focused his palate through sensory training on extra virgin olive oil followed by apprenticeship training with the Califonia Olive Oil Council. He now sits on the Applied Sensory panel, the only IOC accredited taste panel in the USA, as well as a fresh produce sensory panel. In addition to the Central Coast Olive Oil Contest, Glenn is a judge for the LA International olive oil competition, the California State Fair olive oil & wine competition and the Yolo County Fair. Just for the love of cooking, in his spare time Glenn and his wife Maria run “Delicioso Epicurean Adventures”, curating exclusive custom one-of-a-kind dining experiences.
