About Storm Addison
Storm started at Cava as a dish washer five years ago and has been a valued member of our kitchen team ever since. He quickly moved from washing dishes and secured a place as a full time cook. His natural talents and his artistic eye give Storm an unusual ability to plate some of the most beautiful food I have ever seen. Over the years Storm has created many of our cold plate designs here at Cava and probably holds an unofficial record for the most photographed plate our Valhrona chocolate dish.  He is dedicated hard working young man with a bright future. His Art is his passion and it shows through to his daily work.  Storm’s influences in food have come from his Hawaiian and Filipino back ground.  I look forward to experiencing his creations and seeing artistry this young chef is capable of.
