Chef Darryl Dela Cruz received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Administration from the University of Hawaii. After working in sales and marketing for several years, he returned to school to pursue his love of cooking. In 1987, he received a Certificate of Achievement in Culinary Arts from Maui Community College (MCC) and began his cooking career at the Intercontinental Hotel, Maui. In 1992, MCC offered him a lecturer position; he subsequently was offered a permanent teaching position where he advanced to Associate Professor.

The Maui Chefs and Cooks Association (ACF) named him the 2000 Chef of the Year. In 2002, he received the University of Hawaii Board of Regents Excellence in Teaching award and in 2004, was a scholarship recipient of the National Restaurant Association Education Foundation. Chef Dela Cruz has also been recognized in Who's Who of America's Teachers in 2002 and 2005.

Chef Dela Cruz was Chef de Cuisine and part of the opening team for the Blue Sage Café in Portland, Ore., prior to accepting his current Instructor position at Le Cordon Bleu- Seattle. With his many professional relationships, he regularly invites culinary professionals into the classroom to serve as judges, adding to the critiques his students receive as part of their education.
