Dane Blom – Executive Chef
A Sacramento native, Blom’s earliest days in the restaurant industry date back to high school, where he discovered a passion for cooking that ultimately lead him to attend the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. From there, he joined the team at fine dining, Michelin-starred restaurant Terra in the Napa Valley before returning to his hometown. In 2007, Blom became Mike and Molly’s first hire at Hawks Restaurant in Granite Bay before the restaurant opened, establishing his appreciation for high standards in the kitchen. After leaving Hawks, Blom became the Chef De Cuisine of the esteemed Grange Restaurant & Bar from 2014 to 2017, before returning to the Hawks family as Executive Chef at Hawks Public House.
In March 2018, Chef Dane Blom accepted the position of Executive Chef at Grange Restaurant & Bar located in Sacramento’s The Citizen Hotel. As Chef at Grange, Blom is focused on creating a seasonal, approachable menu that is continuously evolving to delight local palettes. Blom echoes the farm-to-fork culture long embraced at Grange and nurtures his team to learn and grow.
Currently living in Roseville, when not in the kitchen, Blom can be found spending quality family time with his wife and young daughter.
