Appointed Executive Chef
At Tanque Verde Ranch in Tucson - AZ, USA
Tanque Verde Ranch, a historic guest ranch located on 60,000 scenic desert acres alongside Tucson’s Saguaro National Park, announced today that Justin Macy has joined the resort’s culinary team as executive chef. In his new role, Chef Macy will use his expertise in spa cuisine to put healthier spins on the classic comfort food that completes the dude ranch experience, while also overseeing the three daily meals guests enjoy as part of all-inclusive rates, and the resort’s active group and banquet catering services.
An Arizona native, Chef Macy began his culinary career at the young age of 17 at the renowned destination spa and resort Miraval, which is also located in Tucson. Throughout his 15 years spent in the Miraval kitchen, Chef Macy started with minimal culinary experience and worked his way up the ranks to Executive Chef of the resort. Here, he experimented with eclectic ingredients to create fusion dishes that were equally as unexpected and delicious as they were light and healthy. He also had the opportunity to co- author three cookbooks and appear on both the Cooking Channel and The Food Network, while also earning recognition for award-winning spa cuisine along the way.
