Chef Tony Torres

After fourteen years in the information technology industry, I took a risk...decided to change careers and finally follow my passion to cook!  I did what most cooks do.  I went to culinary school, got my first job cooking and never looked back. 

I have cooked in a high volume kitchen at Japonais, worked as a Sous Chef for the Chicago Golf Club, and managed the kitchen at Whole Foods.  These experiences have helped me prepare for the next chapter in my culinary career as a personal chef.  Elevate Food was born with the idea of helping people understand the joy of cooking and the idea of using simple high quality ingredients to create amazing dishes.  

As a personal chef, I'm able to offer services that are highly personalized.  I'm so excited to have the opportunity to cook for you!
