He attended culinary school at the Pennsylvania Institute of Culinary Arts and after graduation went on to work at the Boca Raton Resort, Harbor Court Hotel, and Linwoods in Owings Mills. Working under Linwood Dame was the most influential experience of his career. Linwood pushed Dutch to reach great heights and to pay attention to all aspects of the kitchen.
