Chef Biography

Cory Schreiber was born 1961 into a Portland seafood family, who for generations ran a Portland institution, Dan & Louis Oyster Bar.  By age 11 he had started his career at the restaurant.  After school, he worked under Great Chefs Lydia Shire and Bradley Ogden before opening his own restaurant, Wildwood, in 1994.

Great Chefs caught up with Chef Cory later that year and taped several dishes for its Great Chefs – Great Cities series for the Discovery Channel.  In 1995 the restaurant was named Oregonian’s Restaurant of the Year and in 1998, Chef Cory Schreiber won the James Beard Award for Best Chef: Pacific Northwest

In 2007, he sold out his interest in the restaurant and ran the Farm to School program for the Oregon Department of Agriculture.  In 2010 he joined the faculty at the Art Institute of Portland where he ran their culinary school.  In 2014, the restaurant Wildwood closed its doors.
