Marcus Guiliano owns Aroma Tyme Bistro

Chef Marcus Guiliano has accumulated an impressive culinary resume on his path to opening Aroma Thyme Bistro. Marcus and his wife Jamie opened New Years Eve, 2003.

Guiliano began his career in 1990 as a cook in up-state New York at various hotels and restaurants like the Depuy Canal House. With an objective of cooking great food Guiliano set out and worked for Mobil Five Star properties like the Greenbrier and the Broadmoor. He had the honor to work for Pierre Koffman at La Tante Claire in Europe, which at the time was on the top 25 French restaurants in the world. Guiliano has since been the Executive Chef of prestigious Country Clubs and now his latest venture, Aroma Thyme Bistro.

"All this experience taught me how to cook great tasting food which was slowly killing me", says Guiliano. "About four years ago the discovery of holistic cuisine changed my life." Now the quest came to marry gourmet five star cuisine with holistic cuisine.

Essential Oils and cooking: Aroma Thyme Bistro is 100% committed to using only Young Living Oils for everything from cleaning, diffusing and of course cooking/seasoning.

Guiliano has received many culinary awards including presenting at The James Beard Foundation. His latest accomplishments are formulating published recipes for Gary Null in such books at "Power Aging", "Seven Step Series", and others.

Marcus lives in Ellenville, New York with his wife Jamie and two children Justin and Courtney.

Marcus has his own channel on You Tube, and has done several videos on Hudson Valley wine. Here's his take on Bashakill Vineyards.
