Gourmet, Every Day…
At Oakmont of El Dorado Hills, it is easy to become a little spoiled when it comes to fine dining. Our executive chef and staff of culinary professionals make every meal an experience. Not only has our culinary staff been hand-selected from some of the finest culinary schools and fine dining facilities, but they have also undergone the extensive training Oakmont Senior Living has become known for.
It is this training that takes professionals who specialize in quality of service and ensures that they can accommodate any special needs that may come up due to dietary restrictions or health concerns. Since our fine dining must be experienced firsthand we would like to invite you to have a meal with us, on us.

Meet Executive Chef David Fujimura…
Chef David Fujimura comes to Oakmont of El Dorado Hills with 15 years of experience in the culinary field. With a lifelong passion for cooking, he began work in the industry at the age of 16. While studying culinary arts, baking and pastry at San Joaquin Delta College, he worked for Mark Berkner at his reputable fine dining restaurant, Taste, in Plymouth, California.
Following these formative years, he worked for renowned chef Alan Wong, where he honed his craft and broadened his knowledge of Asian cuisine. Chef David served notable high-profile clients including Elton John, Sean Combs (P. Diddy), George Takei, the cast of Hawaii Five-0 and even President Obama.
Eventually he returned to Taste, this time as Chef de Cuisine. During this time, he built the restaurant’s rapport, making it Amador County’s most sought-after culinary destination.
With Oakmont’s VP of Culinary Services Rina Younan as his inspiration, Chef David joined Oakmont’s award-winning culinary team with the vision of providing a culinary experience that will both delight and nurture residents’ mental and physical health. “Making the people you are feeding happy is the most important thing about cooking,” he says.
We would like to invite you to share a meal with us here at our world-class retirement community in El Dorado Hills, so that you can experience firsthand how Chef David and his team make every meal a gourmet experience for our residents and guests.
