Meet College Chefs' Heather Thomas

Meet College Chefs' Heather Thomas

In the same way that a good stage crew is necessary for a theater production to run smoothly, Heather Thomas plays a vital role in day to day flow of College Chefs.  In her role as an Event Planner, Heather has a number of responsibilities that many times, she will handle on the fly.  In her own words, “I basically handle anything that’s a change to the normal meal plan.  That could be having 10 guests for a dinner, planning a huge philanthropy event, mom’s weekend, or a homecoming event.  If the houses want to skip a meal the Friday before Thanksgiving, I handle that and make sure they get credit for those meals which they can use to pay for events down the road.”.

Nutrition: Yes, it’s personal.  From Intern Luke

Nutrition: Yes, it’s personal. From Intern Luke

Carbs are bad and should be avoided, right? And fat definitely makes you fat, right? And protein makes you look like Arnold Schwarzenegger, right? Okay, I’ll fess up, the last one I made up. The first two, however, are questions I commonly encounter, as a current nutrition student and dietetic intern. 

I sympathize with the people who ask the aforementioned questions....

Meet Chef Ian McKinstry

Meet Chef Ian McKinstry

A California native, McKinstry was raised in the kitchen.  From staying up all night making pastries with his classically-trained-chef father, to driving through the valley smelling the variety of sweet aromas the orchards had to offer, food has always been a part of his life.

McKinstry has been with College Chefs for over 3 years now; furthermore, he was promoted to the College Chefs Management Team last March, starting out as a Trainer.


Director of Operations, Chef Jared Bost, says, “Ian has been a rock for us since he started with College Chefs.  His skill as a Chef, his creativity, passion, & consistency are all through the roof.  We are looking forward to his continued ascension as a Chef and as part of our Management Team.”

Meet Chef Lisa Morgan

Meet Chef Lisa Morgan

Chef Lisa Morgan is a self-proclaimed Army brat.  She was born in California, lives in Lexington, Kentucky, and has resided all across the country.  She started school in Missouri, but bounced around from state to state throughout her childhood.  Becoming a chef was not Morgan’s vision from the beginning.  Her dad had always told her that she was going to be a brain surgeon, so that was planted in her head.  While living with her dad, she took on the role of going to the grocery store and cooking for the both of them when she was 12.  Her love for cooking grew immensely from this and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.

Summer Camp Chefs

Summer Camp Chefs

Schooool’s out for summer! - meaning our Chefs are off for the summer too! So what do they do?! College Chefs employees can use the summer as a time to relax and rejuvenate, or they have the option to  take on an exciting opportunity for a couple of months.  We love when our chefs choose to stay busy during the summer - they learn new skills, have new experiences, and stay up-to-date on their culinary chops, which all benefit their position as a chef with College Chefs. We created the website, Summer Camp Chefs (SCC), so that our Chefs have an additional avenue to find summer gigs should they choose to do so.
