Chef Alexx Guevara's Remarkable Journey

A first-class culinary creator makes Utah his new home

Alexx Guevara, chef extraordinaire, claims more than 30 years in the culinary, hospitality and nutrition industry—and his resume reads like a who’s who among culinary artists: California School of Culinary Arts; private performance chef; concierge estate chef for high net worth clients; resident chef and culinary manager for Sur La Table, Los Angeles; executive chef, Malibu; executive chef for Le Cordon Bleu, Hollywood; Food & Wine magazine representative; appearances on The Food Network, Oxygen, Dr. Phil—the list of his involvement in all things culinary is endless!

“I have been blessed with the opportunity to work in all aspects of the culinary arts,” says Chef Alexx.

This engaging, personable chef also owns Mechanixx of Health, Inc., a company specializing in customized nutritional counseling and menu planning. His culinary specialties involve sports medicine, women’s health, chemotherapy, autoimmune protocol, gluten-free, kosher and food allergies—just a few of the health issues for which he recommends special dietary considerations.

“I prepare delicious meals that concentrate on nutritional value and healing properties without sacrificing flavor,” he says. “I leverage human individuality to drive nutrition strategies that help prevent, manage and treat disease and optimize health.”

So why does such an accomplished, talented, successful chef choose to leave his native California and a thriving career to live in southern Utah?

Says Chef Alexx: “I have been looking to expand my private chef and catering client base in southern Utah since my family and I moved here about a year ago. I believe it is my obligation to pass along my experience and education to others, and this drives me in my career.”

Chef Alexx says his choice of moving to Utah has also been to provide a new environment for his family. His wife and daughters are paramount in his life, and he has chosen a change of pace to enhance his family’s quality of living.

Recently, Chef Alexx catered an open house at the 20-acre Starry Nites Ranch in New Harmony, a wedding and event venue, owned by Mary Ronnow and managed by Paula Christie. Nestled among groomed juniper trees and soft green sagebrush, and the incredible view of the Kolob fingers as the backdrop, it is easy to see why he and his family love this area.

“I am looking to expand my opportunities for creative culinary experiences, and I’m enthusiastic about what the future may bring.”
