He comes full circle back to Reno and Silver Legacy after being on staff at Sterling’s Seafood Steakhouse from 2001 to 2004. 

Peter comes to Silver Legacy by way of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts as an instructor of various pastry and baking classes. Prior to that, he served as Executive Pastry Chef for various casinos in and around the western United States spanning the previous decade, including John Ascuaga’s Nugget, Grand Sierra Resort, Mandalay Bay Resort and Thunder Valley.   
With Thomas’ and Peter’s vast experience in the culinary arts, they are an excellent fit and welcome addition! Congratulations and welcome aboard to Thomas Hanson and Peter Paulos, Silver Legacy’s new Assistant Executive Chef and Executive Pastry Chef.
