First Coast magazine dedicates our July Fresh Local Flavor section in memory of Chef Thomas Tolxdorf, Executive Chef of the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island. “Alles Gute” was Chef Thomas’s term of endearment, and the way he embraced life striving to be the best chef, father, and friend. His legacy as a staunch supporter of small farms, a mentor to aspiring chefs, and a strong advocate of school lunch reform will never be forgotten.
