Sous Chef de Cuisine Cody Stone
Since day one, Cody Stone has fostered an infectious drive for passion and excellence that has been an integral part of shaping the Decca kitchen. Cody, a Louisville native and a culinary school misfit, has worked in many of Louisville’s finest restaurants such as 21C’s Proof on Main and the late 732 Social. Among these he cites that it wasn’t until he became Sous Chef of Proof on Main under renowned Chef Michael Paley that he was transformed from a “turn and burn cook” into a cook with a deep respect for details and technique. At Decca he cultivates this respect while he works closely with Chef Annie, collaborating on menus, sourcing the best products, and maintaining kitchen operations.

Highlights include working as floor manager for the El Tovar Hotel in Arizona and the Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans.
