Marcus Guiliano began cooking in the Borscht Belt in the Catskills. Growing up in upstate New York, he was around traditional kosher hotels. Marcus’ first steps were as a busboy and then waiter at fourteen years old. Working at a small chalet resort gave him his first kitchen experience in which he switched sides to become a chef and learned quickly and took over the kitchen within a year. After a year gaining experience, Chef Marcus went to work at the Nevele Resort in Ellenville, NY. Excelling in culinary school, the head of the department pulled him aside and introduced him to the famed Greenbrier Resort. It took two years of applying to be accepted by the chef there. Chef Marcus finally discovered his calling in 1999 after eight years culinary experience. He was a seasoned veteran chef with stints at famous resorts such as The Greenbrier Resort and the Broadmoor Resort, plus a stint working at Pierre Koffman’s La Tante Claire in London, a coveted Michelin Three Star restaurant. Knowing something was just not quite right “All this experience taught me how to cook great tasting food which was slowly killing me,” he explains. “I was overweight. I had high cholesterol, high blood pressure, asthma and I was facing an operation for acid reflux.” Then Chef Marcus happened to watch Gary Null promoting his book, Get Healthy Now: A Complete Guide to Prevention, Treatment, and Healthy Living on public television. Marcus rushed to a health food store for a copy and read it immediately. (He subsequently contributed numerous recipes to Null’s recently released book, The Power of Aging.) “The principles I discovered from Null and others changed everything. I learned about detoxifying the body, the need for exercise and, most important of all, whole foods and a diet based on whole foods alone. It’s no exaggeration to say that it changed my life.”Having saved himself, Chef Marcus, together with his wife Jamie, turned to helping everyone else. The first step was opening Aroma Thyme Bistro on new year’s eve 2003. Aroma Thyme Bistro offers an innovative menu of focused, natural cuisine that reflects balance and well-being.
