Stephanie Hedrick, better known simply as Chef Steph, has been working in kitchens in the Twin Cities for 25 years. Starting as a dishwasher, she worked her way through fry cook jobs and late night after-bar shifts to award winning restaurants with barrier-breaking chefs. She was a part of the haute cuisine scene of the late 90's and early 2000's working in institutions such as Table of Contents (both sides of the river), Dish, Tejas, and the Sample Room until landing her first Executive Chef position at the trendy Independent in Calhoun Square. Since then, she has worked in corporate dining, higher education dining, and most recently honed the food offered at LUSH food bar, which was a labor of love and with the intention to give back to her community.
In July she began her role as Executive Chef at The Woman's Club of Minneapolis. She describes her food as being approachable and farm raised with delightful presentations. Walking in the door, she made history by being the first female chef The Club has ever employed to lead the kitchen. She will do so with ingredients and integrity grown from Minnesota soil and the work ethic inspired by the farmers that work the land and she will continue to give back to the communities as the women of this Club have before her.
