Mar-a-Lago, Palm Beach

Bogdan Boerean grew up in Cluj Napoca, the second largest city in Romania. His early years were spent working in the farm with his father, a Zoo-Technical Engineer, and playing soccer. At the age of 20, Bogdan became a professional soccer player and later graduated with a Masters Degree in Physical Education. After suffering a major knee injury, he decided to move to America and pursue his other passion, cooking. During Bogdan’s first months in the United States, he became even more fascinated with food and decided to become a Chef.

Bogdan joined the Mar-a-Lago team in Palm Beach as a banquet cook before being promoted to Sous Chef soon after. He was then given the opportunity to work at The Versace mansion in South Beach where he furthered his experience in fine dining. In 2012, he returned to The Mar-a-Lago Club as Chef de Cuisine. Chef Bogdan’s passion, hard work, and dedication led him to his current title of Executive Banquet Chef.
