Andrew Barnes

  Executive Chef

 

Andrew's love of cooking began at an early age. At six years old, he started cooking and baking with his grandmother in her small apartment. That is when he knew what he wanted to do with his life. He wanted to be a chef and make people happy through food.

In 1996, Andrew enrolled in culinary courses at The Restaurant School. By 1998, he graduated with an associate’s degree in Chef Training. Upon graduation, he honed his skills by working in a variety of hospitality settings and soaking in a wealth of knowledge from the chefs that he worked with. Andrew
expanded his experience, working in various atmospheres from hotels and fine dining to assisted living and corporate executive dining. He found his niche when he was offered a position at Talamore Country Club. Andrew grew to love the members and knew the private club setting was where he wanted to be. He built a resume of private club experience through his time at Talamore as well as Chester Valley Country club and finally, Whitemarsh Valley Country Club, where Andrew worked for over ten years and won a  Master Chef competition between local Philadelphia clubs.

Andrew has been given a great opportunity to serve the members and guests at The ACE Club and  plans to use his experience and passion to make  members happy through food with every dish that he serves at the club.
