Andres Moncada has made cooking for others his life’s passion. In his teens, he washed dishes at a Chicago steakhouse, but watched and learned all the other stations in his off-hours, and eventually was promoted to a cook. A native of Mexico, he came west to be nearer to family and ran the kitchen at Denny’s, earning awards for cleanliness and sales. On a tip from a friend, he got in at Thunder Valley as a cook’s helper, and once again worked his way up - to Assistant Executive Chef in the Buffet.
