Pastry Chef Rebecca McManus and Exec Chef Richard Langston of Richard’s

Rebecca McManus – PASTRY CHEF

A fan of “Cake Boss” from a young age, Becky knew she had to become a pastry chef after she baked her first cake from scratch. At 19 she went to the Oregon Coast Culinary Institute and received her Associate’s Degree in Baking & Pastry Arts. After graduation she interned at the Grove Hotel in downtown Boise, which reinforced her love of baking, and where she also discovered working with foods on the savory side. What she enjoys most about her job is creating something new and different every day. Her goal is to bring you something you’ve never tasted and can’t live without!

Richard Langston – EXECUTIVE CHEF

After graduating with high honors from the California Culinary Academy, Chef Langston discovered Idaho and has been a cornerstone of the food scene here in Boise since 1992. Some of his past projects in Boise have been : Amore, Richard’s Bakery & Cafe, Richard’s Across the Street, and Cafe Vicino. For ten years Cafe Vicino was recognized as one of Boise’s best restaurants, and Chef Langston was honored as a James Beard Nominee for Best Chef Northwest in 2014.

In 2016 Chef Langston decided to take the leap from a 42-seat restaurant serving lunch and dinner, to 100 seats serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a full bar, room service and banquets. Richard’s opened on New Years’ Eve 2016. His wife, Melinda, is his business partner in this venture, and their daughter Molly is a pastry chef in Portland.
