Kevin Oppici is the Kevin of Kevin's Thyme. Chef Oppici got his start in the food world by chance. A pot washer at the local restaurant where his brother worked quit, and so began Chef Oppici’s culinary career at age 12.
Chef Oppici worked his way up to prep cook. As an adolescent he worked at several local hotels, caterers and restaurants including Arthur’s Landing, the Marriott Hotel, NY World Yacht, the Treadway and Above the Salt. Instead of public high school, his culinary passion lead him to Bergen County Technical School’s Academy for Culinary Arts and Hotel Administration.
