During the course of his 20-year culinary career, Chef Copley has satisfied some of the most discriminating taste buds at five-star locations all over the world. Upon earning a degree at Westminster Culinary College in London, he gained experience at the world-renowned Savoy and Park Lane hotels, and proceeded to tour the globe as he acquired prestigious culinary positions and numerous “best of” honors at a number of top establishments.
Following his time in London, Chef Copley was recruited by the Grand Hyatt on the Sunshine Coast in Australia, which received the Petrees Award for #1 restaurant in the state for the three consecutive years he was commissioned there.
He then jetted to the U.S. to join the Ritz Carlton in Maui followed by the Ritz Carlton in San Francisco, which won the honor of #1 formal dining room during his tenure. Chef Copley made his way back to Hawaii as Executive Chef of the Lodge at Koele where his refined creations helped earn them the title of #1 restaurant in Hawaii for three straight years.
Chef Copley ultimately settled in the desert hotspot Palm Springs, where he realized his dream of opening Copley’s On Palm Canyon in 2004. Chef Andrew Copley has been called an “emerging chef” by the New York Times and is a contributor to media such as Restaurant & Hospitality, Rachael Ray Magazine and NBC.
