INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT: Chad Luephje, executive chef, Red Mountain Spa, St. George, UT

Our philosophy is pretty simple: We want to have food that is healthful and as enjoyable as it can be. That leaves a lot more room than most people think when they think about food that is good for you. My background is mainstream destination resorts and hotels, making it taste good and look good … you don’t think about the health ramifications.
