Ken Barnes – Carver’s Café Room Chef
Ken Barnes has always loved food. He loves the way it brings people together and the lasting memories created around meals. Though food has been a lifelong passion, his professional culinary journey began in 2015. After burning out in other lines of work, Ken decided to follow his childhood dream of becoming a chef. His career in the Food & Beverage industry started at South Seattle College, where he received his culinary education. Over the years, Ken has sampled several roles in the world of food: he owned a Filipino pop-up restaurant, worked at Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano at Walt Disney World, created the menu for a brewery, and spent time at Navos, a café that provided job opportunities to adults with mental health issues. His breadth of experience and passion for learning new cuisines are two key ingredients in the recipe for the perfect Carver’s Café Room Chef, the position that brought him to Swinomish Casino & Lodge in 2022. Ken loves the beautiful location and fantastic team members here, and he’s finding new things to love every day!
