Chef Todd and the vision for Apple Tree Cafe and Catering


I’m chef Todd, owner of Apple Tree cafe and catering, my passion is being in the kitchen.


Since the 3rd grade, I've had love affair with the kitchen, working hard to perfect my grilled cheese technique. In high school, I worked at a couple of our legendary Green Bay supper clubs and never left the kitchen for long.


My path has been an exciting one. It's taken me from Green Bay to the twin cities, and back again. I have trained under nationally recognized chefs and worked with some fantastic teams. It has taken me from fine dining, to healthy, locally driven college cafe menus, to brats and burgers etc., for some 30,000 people. This experience has brought me to where I am today.


I am active in the local food movement, explore fusion and international cooking styles, plus work with some great folks producing YouTube videos focused on sharing recipes and house and garden projects. I teach classes at Lakeshore Culinary Institute and decided to take the opportunity to follow my dream. Apple Tree is an opportunity for me to share with folks, my passion for good food and to demonstrate my belief that food can be a cornerstone of strong communities. So, join me in the kitchen and let's share some stories!
