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.
