Chef Sean was classically trained at the California Culinary Academy. Sean always knew he wanted to be a chef ever since the age of 10. Sean was the Chef d'cuisine for Chef Maurice Couturier, former Chef to King Hussein of Jordan, for 6 years in Aspen, Colorado.
He went on to be the executive Chef of multiple restaurants in Aspen, before opening his own restaurant in Aspen. After owning his own restaurant in Aspen, Sean decided to move to New Glarus, WI where he met his beautiful wife, Nancy.
They moved to Stoughton, WI and Nancy convinced Sean to open a restaurant, so he could showcase his talents and provide a fine dining experience. This was the start of Big Sky Restaurant in May 2013.
Before meeting Sean and opening their own restaurant, Nancy had never worked in a restaurant. Prior to living in Wisconsin, she lived in Missoula, MT for 15 years. She moved to New Glarus, WI and took a position with Summit Credit Union as a Compliance Officer- a job she still works at and loves! Nancy says "the restaurant is Sean's dream and I feel lucky to be part of it. Working at the restaurant and meeting our guests is the best part of my day!"
Big Sky History
Montana, The Big Sky State, holds part of Nancy's heart. Big Sky is a reflection of the U.S. which encompasses many different cultures, and so does our food!
