Bill Lynch was born in Montville, New Jersey but managed to overcome this handicap when his family moved to Louisville. Bill’s passion for cooking began when his family instituted a policy of whomever cooked dinner was excused from doing the dishes. From that day forward Bill knew that as long as he was cooking he would never have to eat Hamburger Helper again. He attended Trinity High school and spent the majority of his youth waiting for his latent mutant powers to activate. When it became clear to Bill that superpowers were not part of his future he decided to concentrate on cooking as he had already squandered several years working as a short order cook at the Twig and Leaf. Bill attended Sullivan University, and while there began working at legendary Louisville eatery Jack Fry’s. Mentored by Shawn Ward, Bill steadily moved through Jack Fry’s kitchen honing all phases of his cooking until he was tapped by Anthony Dike to take over the kitchen of Le Relais.
Bill is currently the Bristol Bar & Grille – Hurstbourne Chef. Bill has appeared on Secrets of Louisville Chefs and Secrets of Louisville Chefs: Live! And his recipes have appeared in numerous publications throughout the region. Bill is an active member of the Louisville Originals and a member of the Louisville Water Company’s Community Advisory Committee. While he loves cooking, Bill is still holding out hope he might get bitten by some sort of radioactive animal or drafted into an interstellar police force.
