A four-time James Beard semi-finalist, Andy began his career 20 years ago cooking at a small family restaurant in his hometown of Toledo. Previously, he served as Executive Chef of Michael Symon’s Roast where he was named best chef, 2012, in Hour Detroit. He has also cooked at L’Essentiel (Chambery, France), Tribute (Farmington), and Oliveto (Oakland, CA), among others. He is a 2003 graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. Andy spends his free time in his garden, at the Detroit Film Theater, or at Comerica Park – and remains, despite his better judgment, a die-hard Lions fan.
