From there Trueblood moved to Chicago, cooking first at Tru, and later working with master chef Arun Sampanthavivat at Arun's, one of the most acclaimed Thai restaurants in the country.

Now living in Kentucky, Trueblood has most recently been Chef de Cuisine at Holly Hill Inn. With his original menus in place, the restaurant received exceptional reviews and many accolades that helped solidify its reputation as a destination for fine dining in Kentucky.

His cuisine is recognized for expert knowledge of many traditional techniques and ingredients, combined with a passion for exploring and enjoying food.
