I grew up loving to eat, and learned from my grandfather and Mother the fundamentals of cooking. I knew from a young age I wanted to become a Chef, I loved and still love to this day making people happy through my cooking. I went to culinary school at The International Art Institute of Colorado, and graduated at the top of my class. I have worked in a wide array of professional kitchens ranging from fast pace restaurants, to The Denver Country Club, to most recently a Skilled Nursing facility where I was the Executive Chef. Along the way I have picked up numerous skills, knowledge, and techniques that make me the Chef I am today. My goal is to create delicious and healthy meals for you, your family, and guests. I use local ingredients when ever possible, and the great state of Colorado has a lot to offer. So please contact me today, and we can get started on creating a unique menu you will love time and time again.

When the country girl went to New York to visit her newly acquired sister-in-law, it was an eye opener! As the two of us shopped the specialty markets including the bakery, the meat shops, the Italian market and the seafood market I was taken aback, I’d never seen anything like it. I was immediately captivated by the exotic nature of it all.

Returning home to the countryside, I watched PBS and all the cooking shows available but especially Julia Child. All my husband could say was, “Wow, this is a change and don’t stop now!”

That was almost 30 years ago and since then I have acquired a life’s worth of cooking lessons. I’ve taken cooking classes, read cookbooks like novels, and subscribe to several cooking magazines. It is a never ending quest. I constantly try new food types, track food trends, and follow new cooking concepts. Cooking is my passion, my talent, my purpose.

I am a Midwestern boy born and raised in the Twin Cities (St.Paul and Minneapolis) of Minnesota. I am the youngest of nine children and my passion for cooking began when I was around nine years old and one of my older sisters gave me my first cookbook for my birthday. When I was 14 Mom broke her leg and I began cooking the family dinners! Though I have attended some cooking classes and seminars my culinary training continued to be mostly self taught by experimentation on family and friends. It’s amazing how many friends you will find you have when you volunteer to have a dinner party featuring Chilean Sea Bass with a bourbon glaze, White Cheddar mashed potatoes and Steamed Asparagus with sautéed criminis and shallots. I started out cooking based on my Midwestern upbringing but after traveling all over the US and a bit in France I have developed a true passion for sauces of all kinds. From complex wine reductions and bourbon glazes to simple gravies, béchamel and hollandaise sauces. I have yet to meet a sauce I don’t like!

My wife now compares me to the star of the movie Ratatouille. I don’t just enjoy cooking. I truly love and get excited about putting different flavors together to make not only the perfect dish, but the most extraordinary complete meal I can think of! Whether I am relying on my Midwestern influences and creating a hearty beef and potato meal or following my passion for sauces of all kinds I get pure joy from my cooking!

I have spent the past 12 years in the corporate world of purchasing and at the encouragement of my wonderful wife I finally broke out of the corporate mold to follow my true passion. After investing in some training by the USPCA (Unites States Personal Chef Association) and the CBA (Culinary Business Academy)I have taken my cooking from being just a hobby I share with family and friends to making it my life as Chef Sam’s Saucy Suppers! I continue to update my skills and better serve you by attending more training classes and seminars and I am pursuing being a Certified Personal Chef.

I have been cooking for over 30 years for the enjoyment of it. Back in 2003 My wife Lisa & I came to Denver to visit some friends. Since I loved to cook I fixed John & Jana a meal why we were in town & they loved it. They were the ones who suggested I open up a Personal Chef's business.

I started working for my father in 1988 in the Insurance Business. Our original company Franklin Life merged with American General / AIG. The rest is history. I started working for the City of Clovis in 2008, and I hated it. I had spent 23 years in Insurance & Financial Planning. I decided it was time for a change.

Lisa and I moved to Denver just to open up my Personal Chef's Business in July 2010 & to follow our dreams. I graduated from the Culinary Business Academy in October 2010. To further my education I attended Cook Street 180 program in March 2011. I graduated in June 2011. I am a member in good standing with the USPCA. I am also a member of the ACF in good standing.

My passion is food and I believe I have a gift of putting different foods together that just work. I use recipes as a guide but I rarely use a set recipe.Let us help you save time & money to get some of your life back. I would love to have the opportunity to become your Personal Chef.
