Hi, my name is John Tritone and I have been employed with Sysco for just over 10 years. I started my career with Sysco as a Marketing Associate in April 2005 and became a Corporate Chef in October 2008. In 2012, I was awarded Marketing Specialist of the Year by my peers at Sysco Boston. I have since become the Kalat Kitchen Manager.

 

I have been in the foodservice industry since I was thirteen working my way through this great industry from a bus boy, dishwasher, line cook and sous chef up to executive chef. I like to think that I have a well-rounded culinary background which includes mostly private country clubs, family owned restaurants and catering.

 

We welcome you to visit the Kalat Kitchen and to be ready for a fun, relaxing and fulfilling day. I leave you with two of my favorite food quotes…

 

”You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients”

 — Julia Child

 

“The greatest dishes are very simple.” — Auguste Escoffier

Favorite Food

Where do I begin? Anything my late Grandma Tritone and my father create. Italian, Pizza, BBQ , or anything coming from the grill. I love food...

 

Favorite Food to Cook

I like to create; I don’t feel like I have one favorite item to prepare, but I love to grill. Even in the New England winters, the first thing I shovel out is the grill. From salads to main courses and even a fried dessert, I have many favorites...

 

Favorite Dessert

You can’t beat a great Creme Brulee or my Mom’s Whoopee Pies!!!

 

What do you like most about the food service industry?

I like that this is the largest industry in the world, but yet seems so small. I like that it is ever changing, no two days are ever the same. You can never stop learning in this field, every day is a learning experience, and it is what you do with those experiences that will shape your career.

Hi, my name is Anthony McCauley I have been employed with Sysco for just under 5 years. I started as a Marketing Associate in February of 2011 and became a Corporate Chef in June of 2014. My career at Sysco is exciting and challenging in a fun way, every day!

 

I started in the food industry at the age of fourteen as a dishwasher and worked my way through various venues in the culinary field. From fast service to corporate dining, restaurants and catering as well. In-between my culinary ventures, I attended Johnson & Wales University in Providence for my culinary training and graduated in 1999. I enjoy food and the endless road that the culinary world brings.

 

Family and friends are a great part of my life and I am lucky to have a beautiful wife and three healthy boys to help in the kitchen! I look forward to seeing you visit with me in the Kalat Kitchen in the near future.

Bon Appétit!

Favorite Food

My favorite food would not be one particular thing. I love all food in general and the happy feeling that it brings to everyone. My favorite food experience would be cooking outside on the grill! There is nothing like cooking fresh products on a grill during a warm summer evening.

 

Favorite Food to Cook

This is the most popular question to ask a chef, I think like most chefs, we do not have one favorite food to cook. However, my favorite meal to cook is Thanksgiving for sure! I love the fall and all that goes with it, from the slow cooked meats to the vegetables that are available. I love the experience and company that goes along with the food!!!

 

Favorite Dessert

Anything chocolate! Enough said!

 

What do you like most about the food service industry?I love that it is an end less industry and there is never a dull moment. There is always something new to learn, new trends to see and FOOD!!

I first got into food when I was just about two years old when I would fall asleep reading cookbooks and wake up from my naps  to watch Julia Child. I graduated from Johnson & Wales University in Providence with a degree in Culinary Arts and Nutrition in 2008.

 

For fifteen years I have worked with the best chefs in the country to hone my skills and learn as much as possible; from Southern barbecue pits to high end seafood spots on the Cape, from elite steak houses in casinos to molecular gastronomy restaurants in Boston. I am the most passionate about seafood especially oysters.

 

I spend my free time reading about oysters and meeting the fishermen and visiting their farms. When I am not over indulging in oysters and dim sum I am usually running marathons or relaxing on the Cape. My favorite industry quote is by Julia Child who said,

“…and if you are afraid of butter, use cream.”

Favorite Food

My favorite foods are oysters, sashimi, live sea urchin and dim sum - specifically dumplings, and Kraft mac and cheese.

 

Favorite Food to Cook

I love using fresh fish and produce in the warmer months and keeping it as close to its original state as possible. In the winter, I love braising lamb shanks and oxtail and serving with homemade gnocchi.

 

Favorite Dessert

I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but the best dessert I have ever had was when I went to an oyster bar and for dessert I ordered one of each of the 15 varieties of oysters they had!

 

What do you like most about the food service industry?

I like how everyone is connected and everyone knows someone else in the industry. The shared stress that is built over the 7:30 rush on a Friday night form long lasting relationships.
