"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!

He is always so passionate, positive, and would do anything to help anyone in need!"

Chef Barret Beyer epitomizes new beginnings and change, inspiring millions with his cooking and actions.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. Chef Barret’s 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.  While working in New York City’s financial industry and boom era during the aughts, Beyer was arrested ten times for charges that ranged from selling drugs, Conspiracy to forgery, even overdosing and waking up on life support after 2 days in 2006. For ten years, from 1998 until 2008, he was in and out of jails. However coinciding with the birth his daughter in 2008, the reality TV star finally got sober. Beyer said, “I couldn’t do it anymore. I wanted to be a father she could look up to.” He did. Leaving the world of finance and clanging cells bars behind, the love of cooking become the inspiration for his life’s next course. Always a home cook, Beyer attended culinary school in his native Long Island. Before even graduating the ambitious New Yorker already had a job as a sous chef.                                                Beyer then made it to “Hell’s Kitchen” with the legendary kitchen screamer Gordon Ramsey. His favorite television experience. Although, he didn’t win the show, Beyer realized that working in the kitchen is the work he loves. It’s that drive to succeed and healthy ambition which drove him to participate in “Cutthroat Kitchen”, another on-camera cooking competition. “I was the first one cut. It was for not putting the chicken on a Chicken Caesar Salad,” the chef says while chuckling at his folly.                           
From his experience on reality TV, the cheffing professional has become a consultant opening a multitude of East Coast restaurants, receiving many accolades along the way. Food & Beverage Magazine and Chef Works have both named him “Chef of The Month”, in 2013 and 2014, respectively. With his new found celebrity status, Beyer volunteers or works non-profits events around the country including Reality Rally which raises money for Michelle’s Place a Breast Cancer Resource Center in Temecula, Bullying We’re Kickin’ It which he is a Spokesperson for.  has organized and raised money to cook warm meals to feed the people & first responders of Long Beach after Super storm Sandy hit. He went out to Oklahoma & teamed up with Johnsonville Sausage Company to help cook  raise money & items for the victims of the F5 Tornado that ripped through Moore County. With eight years of sobriety and five years of cooking, it’s clear Chef Beyer has changed his life.                   
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.
