LaRue’s Beginnings

Before LaRue Culinary’s inception, the company’s executive chef, Andrew LaRue, earned his bachelor’s degree from the esteemed culinary school, Johnson & Wales University. What followed was a culinary journey from the East Coast cities of Boston and Providence to the West Coast, including San Francisco, Napa Valley and Marin County.

Andrew has experience with various styles of food service, including fine dining restaurants, catering and private clubs. In addition to running LaRue Culinary, Andrew is also the co-owner of Custom Culinary Events and the Director of Culinary Operations for Cisco’s Salsa Company and Nonnie’s Cafe & Creamery. The culinary expert’s array of experience ensures your catered meal will be both unique and delicious.
