Restaurant Team


Umit Kaygusuz
Executive Chef

With more than 10 years of culinary experience, Chef Umit’s passion for the culinary arts has taken him from his homeland of Turkey to many Michelin-rated kitchens around the world, including the likes of The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai, Castle on the Hudson in New York City, and La Colombe Restaurant in Cape Town, South Africa. As Executive Chef, Chef Umit oversees all functions of the main kitchen of Cast & Plow.

Fostering the belief that “life is simple, keep it simple,” Chef Umit created Cast & Plow’s menu as a foundation to continuously build on. “I am inspired by Mediterranean and French cuisine since they have played a strong role in my background. I love to experiment and combine this cuisine with elements of North African, Indian and Asian cooking styles,” said Chef Kaygusuz.

Having a Grand Diploma from Cordons Bleus and a degree in architecture, Chef Umit is a proven artist in constructing dishes to delight any palate. He creates every dish with love, respect, and knowledge, a trait attributed to his grandmother, who was also a chef. He enjoys traveling to the Far East and African countries, tasting wines, cheeses, and different types of pâtés and cured meats.
