Why Chris Burch Prefers Chef Morataya‘s Back to Basics

When it’s time to host a party in the East End (Hamptons), you put all your enthusiasm: the cocktails, the tablescape, and obviously the food. When Burch Creative Capital founder and CEO, Chris Burch was looking for the best person who could cater to his summer party, he knew that the beach-friendly grill approach of Andrés Morataya, a Panamanian chef, would fit perfectly.

Chef Morataya, who has a farm-to-fork restaurant, situated in Panama known as the Panga, is specializing in creating unparalleled dining experiences that are beyond the plate. When Chef Morataya and his spouse initially started their restaurant, financial restrictions hindered them from buying the equipment they required. Those constraints lead to chef Morataya exploring a unique way of cooking, what he named “back to basics.” Check tastingtable.com

At the house of Burch in the Hamptons and his restaurant, Morataya built his grill from the very beginning using driftwood and bricks. This October, Morataya, is going to take his unique idea to Nihi Sumba Island, at the resort of Burch in Indonesia.  Read additional article about the resort on here.  Morataya said that even if he’s having access to advanced equipment, he likes to limit himself to allow himself to be creative.

Based on bjtoneline.com, the entrepreneurial success of Burch started in 1976; at that time, he was still at attending Ithaca College as an undergraduate student. Together with Bob, his brother, Burch invested $2,000 for starting Eagle’s Eye apparel. They grew that business to $165 million and sold it to Swire Group. After Eagle’s Eye sale, Burch became one of the earliest Internet Capital Group (ICG) investors, a popular story of IPO in Internet space. Burch relied more on his capability of finding the nexus between implementation and innovation and continued realizing extraordinary success, based to some extent on his instinctual understanding of consumer habits plus his experience in using superior sourcing infrastructure as well as direct-to-consumer channels.
