CHEF TASTE – THE MOST INTERESTING CHEF IN THE WORLD

Even though he is a man of few words, Chef Taste is known by many around the globe as the most interesting chef in the world.

No one knows his exact age, his middle name (which begins with a Q), or his geographical agenda at any given moment… yet his reputation precedes him.

Chef Louis Q. Taste was born of humble beginnings, just a stone’s throw from what would become the world-famous St. Louis Arch. Though most of his early life is a mystery, the tales and legends surrounding his worldly travels and accomplishments only increase the shroud of secrecy of this great culinary master.

What we do know, or think we know :

  • Chef Louis Q. Taste began his career as personal chef to Eero Saarinen – who was later inspired to design the Gateway Arch, after Chef decided to grow an iconic mustache.

  • Chef Taste has been known to be seen early in the morning, as the sun rises, doing sun-salutations beneath the Arch.

  • To the amazement and delight of the organizers of the Budweiser Taste of St. Louis, Chef Taste joined the Taste Team in November of 2011 – promising to accept the challenge of making it the best, most well-known event in the Midwest. (So far so good!)

  • Chef Taste’s favorite beer is Stella Artois. His favorite event is (you guessed it) The Budweiser Taste of St. Louis, and his favorite color is beet red.
