Food Service Director
Vinny Tellini is the Food Service Director at the Winston School. Vinny has had a passion for cooking ever since he was a child helping his mom in the kitchen for Sunday brunch. Born and raised in Dallas, he is the youngest of seven with five sisters and one brother. Coming from an Italian family, food was second nature to him which helped shape him into the chef he is today.
Vinny attended culinary school at El Centro College, and began his career with Sage Dining in November, 2012 as head chef at Ursuline Academy. He is excited to share his passion for food and culinary expertise with the Winston Community.
"On days I am not working, I enjoy taking my daughter Presley to the park and spending time with family and friends," says Vinny.
His favorite meal to cook is Pesto Alfredo bowtie pasta with bacon and shrimp. Always a crowd pleaser!
