Get to know me better

Máster of international and regional American Cuisine.

Please note that by end of May I will have certifications as being virus free. All my events will be conducted with the utmost practice of sanitation and care. My food products will come washed and sanitized before coming to your property and I will be dressed with protective gear.

As a professional Chef I was brought in kitchens of my parents in Norway where I did my culinary apprenticeship. My skills were then honed under the guidance of such Chefs as Alice Waters, Jeremiah Tower, Bruce Adelles, Ken Hom and Leone Giavonni. After cooking and pairing wines on Robert Mondavi's vineyards I developed several restaurants and hotels with prominent National brands and then owned several of my own. I've had the pleasure to be a Guest Chef at the prestigious James Beard House in New York. I helped develop a Culinary school by writing their curriculums and teaching over 3200 Students. My passion over the years has been to study and become proficient in the flavor profiles of many regions of the world including American Cuisines.

This was our first experience with using Take a Chef, and we couldn’t be happier. We had an absolutely amazing time. The food was out of this world, and we enjoyed getting to talk with Chef Stephen and hearing about his life stories.
