About the Chef
“I am happiest when I am in the kitchen”
Chef Abby Randall has over 17 years of professional cooking experience, from catering to fine dining. She found her passion for cooking at a young age working in her mother’s farm-to-table restaurant, Rebekah’s, in southeastern Minnesota. There she learned the importance of using quality, local ingredients and cooking from scratch. After attending the Culinary Institute of America in New York and attaining her ProChef Level One certification, Abby started a personal chef service in 2012 with a mission to promote healthy eating at home.
“Cooking for different families gave me valuable insight on what people like to eat, their dietary needs, and what their kids enjoyed as well. It has helped me put together menus I know families can appreciate.”
In 2014, Abby transitioned into a commercial kitchen in Eden Prairie, where she now offers a weekly changing menu from which clients can order their meals online for pick-up or delivery. She has surrounded herself with a talented team of chefs and staff to support a lunch cafe and catering operation.
Abby’s mother, Diane Lutzke, cooks and preserves food for the Schwen family at Heartbeet Farms. Pictured: Diane, Farmer Rebecca Schwen and her daughter Hazel.
Throughout the growth of her business, Abby has kept the same core values and connections from local farms as her mother had in her restaurant, and is proud to be able to incorporate local sustainability into her business.
“It’s a good feeling to be able to give business to the hard-working families and farmers who put their life into their work. The quality and flavor of these ingredients is something that is impossible to find anywhere else.”
The Quickest Way to Anyone’s Heart is Through Their Stomach…
At The Tomato Vine, we want you to feel like a welcome guest. You will always be greeted with a warm smile, enticing aromas from the stove, and a plate full of goodness. Stop in for lunch, grab dinner to go, or give us a call if you need help feeding a larger group. We look forward to serving you!
