Meet the Chef
As a native to the South Bay, Executive Chef Kha Lu embodies the modern Californian spirit in his approach to food and hospitality. He brings high-technique and turns it into an approachable and rustic style of cooking that is refined, yet comforting. He is a strong believer in sustainable practices as a way of life and business, not just a tool for marketing. Lu graduated from the Professional Culinary Institute of Campbell and landed at the Plumed Horse in Saratoga. He considers Chef Peter Armellino a huge mentor and starting point for his career as he gained the techniques and knowledge necessary to gain the coveted Michelin Star.
Following his passion further, Lu moved to Chicago and worked for the famed Chef Charlie Trotter at his eponymous restaurant which has garnered national recognition—and two Michelin stars—for over a decade. After Charlie Trotter’s, Lu credits his time with Chef Chris Pandel with truly helping him discover the style of cuisine he loves most—by trading in white tablecloths and tasting menus for a more soulful style of cooking. Kha has now made his home at Prime in Santa Clara, where his creative and soulful take on “farm to table” elevates the genre to new levels.
