RAVE REVIEWS
"I had the pleasure of seeing Chef Barret doing a cooking demo at the Sachem Library for about 40 people. His "stage presence", quality of food, and cooking this all with library hot plates made for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Can't wait until the next time I have the opportunity to see him cook again. Yum!!"
- Ellen S.

"Chef Barret is very personable and shows so much passion when he cooks. He came to my house to give me a cooking lesson for my birthday. One of the best gifts ever. He was patient, fun, exciting as he showed me what to do. I def recommend having him cook for you or going to see him. His passion comes out in his food. I still make some of the recipes he showed me."
- Karri-Lynn D.

"Barret made me dinner last year for my birthday. It was the best food I had ever eaten! Even the mushrooms (which I usually hate) tasted unbelievable! Everything was presented beautifully and had great attention to detail. Barret is not only an excellent Chef, but a very loyal loving friend. He is always so passionate, positive, and would do anything to help anyone in need!"
- Katie G.

I would Definitely recommend him to anyone."

Chef Barret Beyer is a Long Island native whose passion and dedication has allowed him to excel and succeed in every aspect of his professional and personal development.  Born in 1976, he quickly displayed an affinity to creative culinary expression. His desire to help others and improve the lives of those who surrounded him led to the enlistment with the United States Coast Guard.  It was during this time of military service where he first realized his life dream when taking on the responsibility of kitchen management while serving his counterparts.                                                                      

Upon completion of military service Chef Barret proceeded to further his education at Long Island's Prestigious Culinary Academy where he graduated at the top of his class. Chef Barret successfully completed SERVSAFE certification and also passed the Nassau County Board Of Health Manager Certification course. Immediately after graduation Chef Barret was selected to participate in a unique opportunity with Bella Skye Catering to work on the set of Food Network's Series "CHOPPED." Although he did not compete on the show the experience of preparing dishes for the film staff and renowned Judges; Geoffrey Zakarian (Iron Chef), Marc Murphy and Chef Aaron Sanchez only increased his desire to become a leader in the culinary industry. Shortly thereafter, He was also chosen to take part in a cook off challenge against Food Networks Chef Robert Irvine live on stage at the Westbury Theater. Chef Barret was then fortunate enough to make it onto the biggest cooking competition in the US, Hell's Kitchen Season 11 and just a year after the season ended he was at it again only this time on Food Network's Kitchen Casino.                                                                 

Chef Barret has organized and raised money and cooked warm meals to feed the people of Long Beach after Super storm Sandy hit. He went out to Oklahoma and teamed up with Johnsonville Sausage Company to help cook and raise money and items for the victims of the F5 Tornado that ripped through Moore County, Oklahoma. Chef Barret is also a Spokesperson for "Bullyin' We're Kickin it" a Rocky Marciano Jr. organization, And also does a yearly fundraiser for Michelle's Place Breast Cancer Resource Center in Temecula California,  Now you can even tune in and listen to Chef Barret as he is the Host of his new internet radio show "Triple F with The Chef" on ITunes. Chef Barret was named Chef of the Month for November 2013 via Chef Works, one of the leading and largest culinary manufacturers in the industry.                                                                                             
Chef Barret will continue to pursue consistent growth, creativity, and culinary development through the positive interaction of culinary leaders. For now, rest assured his strong desire to share his culinary knowledge with others, and to provide personal chef services/classes for the inexperienced cooks/chefs will rapidly establish Chef Barret's brand and associated added value.
