Custom Catering Chef

My name is Andrew Kuse.  I have been cooking for 19 years.  I guess you could say, it is a passion of mine, haha.  In fact, years ago, I once told my best friend, who is now my wife, that cooking was like oxygen to me.  If someone told me I would never be able cook again, I would be lost. A huge part of me would die inside, and I would feel as though my life had lost its purpose.

Food is my passion - my art is creating a delicious and surprising menu that will overwhelm your every sense. Coming up with new menu ideas and new recipes is my creative outlet.  I love experimenting in the kitchen.  But what I love even more is seeing people's faces and getting their reactions after they've tasted something I made.  Food is the fastest way to the heart.

Another of my passions and hobbies are creating gourmet hot sauces and blended spices and rubs. I also enjoy pickling and canning. My pickled carrots are to die for!

Over the years, I have worked in 8 different restaurant kitchens and 3 different camp kitchens. I've learned so much over the years from each kitchen I've worked in about how things are prepared, cooked, plated and served.  I'm also great with pairing, I know just what foods and wines to pair together to make your taste buds sing and dance. Over the past 12 years, I have also done some Catering for Private Dinner Parties and Small Buffet Events. I am currently working on attaining my culinary red seal, and consider myself to be the best up-and-coming Chef on the Island.
