Castle Hill Inn
A student of different cultures, Chef Hart enjoys an international view of cooking and readily embraces different approaches and flavors. Inspired at an early age by his mother's cooking, Karsten grew up in Louisiana in a melting pot of cultural influences, with German and Italian parents who loved to cook. Karsten's first cooking jobs were in small, Cajun-style and Italian restaurants, but he learned the most working in a Chinese eatery on the wok station. He is a strong proponent of cooking with ingredients unique to the area and combining classic technique with original ideas.
