Meet some of the local Chefs who will be cooking up some fun at the WCF’s annual fundraiser and community event on Sunday Nov 19. 

Chef Andrea Sutliff’s culinary career is a true Cinderella story.  Andrea began as a server when Crave Woodbury opened.  Her exceptional skills as a server lead to the opportunity for her to expo on a busy Saturday night.  When her shift was over she was hooked on the kitchen side of the business.

Crave prides itself on the highest quality of food and perfect execution, and as  a company, seeks to promote from within especially when they find raw untouched talent that is waiting to be groomed.

Chef Heather VanHorn took Andrea under her wing and she began learning every station behind the line.  It was clear that she had a natural culinary skill, as she quickly mastered each station, including Sushi.   She worked long and hard over the next 18 months and her dedication to culinary perfection paid off as she was offered a position as Sous Chef at Crave Woodbury For the past year she has worked side by side with Executive Chef Christian Erickson and she has consistently excelled in all areas of management.

She is working diligently to become an Executive Chef and Crave expects Andrea will be a great Executive Chef with the company one day.  Chef Andrea’s pride and passion is evident with every dish she creates and it is reflected not only in the taste but also the exquisite presentation.


The Woodbury Community Foundation, in partnership with the American Culinary Federation (ACF), present the premier culinary event of the season, CHEF FEST 2017 which will bring together the Twin Cities finest ACF Chefs to dazzle your tastebuds and challenge your palate.
