JohnPaul VerHage

Tabor Hill Restaurant & Winery

185 Mount Tabor Rd

Buchanan, Mich.


Chef JohnPaul VerHage at Tabor Hill Winery & Restaurant quietly works his culinary magic simply by keeping things fun and fresh in his kitchen. "That's not to say it doesn't get hectic and fast paced," he says, "but my team is always up for a challenge, no matter what the front of the house hands us."

JohnPaul VerHage's skill in fine cuisine evolved naturally from learning the foundation of cooking at his grandmother's side - and then honing his skills at The Culinary Institute of America.

Manager Paul Landeck notes, "JP knows the basics of superb tastes as well as the razzmatazz of great food presentation."
