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.

From Intern Luke: Going “Glue-Tan” Free

From Intern Luke: Going “Glue-Tan” Free

Ever wonder how gluten-free came to be a thing, before it became the thing? It is for people who have celiac disease, which- in short- is an autoimmune response to gluten. Now for the real question, what in the hell even is gluten? It is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. For celiac’s, gluten ransacks their small intestine and damages microvilli. In the short term, the consequences of consuming gluten are both vicious and debilitating. Think somewhere along the lines of a nasty stomach bug or food poisoning… now imagine trying to go about your normal, daily routine.

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.
