Kelley Schmidt

Executive Chef
Executive Chef Kelley Schmidt has a 17-year pedigree with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, first joining Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale as a cook while still in culinary school, where gaining hands-on knowledge both ignited his passion for the industry and sparked his adventurous spirit. Growing up on the rolling plains of North Dakota, Chef Schmidt was inspired as a child by the lavish feasts his grandmother would cook for family celebrations and holidays.

“The way I relate to a new place or city is through food and regional influence, when I look back I remember the meals and the good times, this feeling is what I hope to bring to guests of Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis.”

Tiffany Gilmore

Assistant Executive Pastry Chef
Pastry is as creative as you are willing to make it and Tiffany Gilmore loves introducing guests to new flavours and desserts, beautiful enough to first eat with their eyes and equally as pleasing at first bite. With an early background rooted in the art of ceramics and floral design, Gilmore is always pushing creativity in the kitchen.

“It’s all about the wow factor, from striking patterns to repetition of design elements, to sizes and shapes scaled to impress, there are a myriad of elements that we can use in pastry.”

India Stevens

Cinder Bar Supervisor
India Stevens is the spark is the spark behind the well-crafted seasonal cocktail menus that greet guests, and draws inspiration from many sources, including international cuisines, cocktail history and her own grandmother’s kitchen. What Stephens calls her “forward-thinking culinary approach” to mixology has resulted in originals such as the Maracuya, a variation on the Hemingway Daiquiri with passion fruit, lemon and grapefruit in the mix; and the Maestro, similar to a classic Old Fashioned but with Venezuelan rum.

“We have so many high-quality products at our fingertips: a kitchen full of fresh fruits and vegetables, and an array of spirits from around the world. I like to play with ingredients to see where they take me – from trying unlikely spirit combinations to playing with the acidity levels of fresh citrus.”
