About Chef Andrew Dilda
A native of Northern California, Andrew Dilda’s passion for food was born during weekend trips with his family to Napa and continued when he moved to Texas at the age of 13. Dilda started working in kitchens at the age of 16, at Fort Worth’s Reata under chefs Brian Olenjack and Grady Spears. After graduating high school, Dilda continued to work in restaurants, honing his skills as he ascended through the kitchen ranks. His experience includes tenures at some of Texas’ best restaurants including Angeluna and Woodshed Smokehouse, where he met acclaimed chef Tim Love. Chef Love’s tendency towards bold flavors and local Texas ingredients resonated with Dilda, who credits Love for a profound influence on his culinary style. In 2013, Dilda and Chef Love teamed up again to open Barter in Uptown Dallas. Dilda, who stepped into the role of executive chef for the first time, collaborated with consulting chef Love to create a menu inspired by Dallas' culinary history and traditions.
