Andrew MenardAndrew Menard
Chef Andrew was born to teach cooking. Influenced by his mother - a TV show Chef since Andrew was young - he learned at a very early age that food is what brings people together. After earning his BA in Culinary Arts & Sustainability in Montpelier, Vermont, Chef Andrew moved to San Francisco to pursue his passion further. In San Francisco, he worked at critically acclaimed and award-winning restaurants, large catering companies, and eventually became a private chef for Apple Executives in Silicon Valley. In addition, he successfully founded and ran The Saucery, bringing hand-crafted ethnic sauces to the local market. Menard currently teaches how to build confidence in home cooking through online classes. When Chef Andrew is not cooking, he enjoys hiking with his puppy Cocoa along with a really good sandwich cut on a bias.
