Carl Schroeder grew up in La Jolla, CA and has San Diego in his soul. After completing his business degree he attended the esteemed Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. Upon graduating in 1996 he worked at a number of notable restaurants across the USA. He learned in top kitchens from legendary chefs including Michael Mina at Aqua (San Francisco, CA), and Bradley Ogden at Lark Creek Inn (Larkspur, CA).
In 2002, Schroeder returned to his native San Diego when he teamed with Ogden as Executive Chef opening Arterra Restaurant in Del Mar, CA to rave reviews. Here he won numerous awards including: Best Hotel Chef Series - James Beard Foundation; California Chef of the Year 2004 - California Travel Industry Association.
Schroeder ventured out on his own in 2006 to open Market Restaurant + Bar in Del Mar, CA as Chef/Owner.
