Chef Cory Morris is bringing his love for Latin American cuisine to Chicago’s west loop. As Executive Chef and Partner of Ronero Chicago you can expect Chef Morris to create a menu that is inspired from his travels through Latin America and also draw inspiration from his years of experience running kitchens for Iron Chef Jose Garces.
Born in Salt Lake City, Utah, Chef Morris moved to Chicago in 2008 to open Mercat a la Planxa as Sous Chef and was later promoted to Chef de Cuisine of the restaurant. Following his success he later opened Rural Society Argentine Restaurant where he focused on wood fire cooking and classic argentine cuisine. His passion for food was sparked at a young age, and he draws on both childhood memories and global travels to bring a unique and inspired approach to his cooking. When not in the kitchen, he can be found on social media sharing his Chicago culinary experiences from his Twitter handle, @ChefCoryMorris.
Chef Morris has appeared on Windy City Live, WGN, WCIU the U and Check, Please! He has also been featured in publications such as Serious Eats, Zagat, The Chicago Tribune, Chicago Reader and more.
