About Chef Andre Averseng
 
Chef Holding Entre - Executive Chef Andre Averseng of Paso Terra Restaurant in Paso Robles, CA
 
Andre Averseng, the true "chef" was born on the kitchen table in a village in Southern France. He worked as a teen prepping food in the kitchen with his mother at a summer camp and later worked on his mom's culinary team for the local Catholic Archdiocese. The priest suggested he become a chef.
He later graduated with honors at Avignon (Andre's hometown) culinary school in 1972. Andre later went on to be named Best Apprentice in France while working for a well-known catering company, and also worked as a pastry chef for six years before coming to the U.S. Once in the U.S., he worked with his brother in the wine industry, then began working as a sous chef at Le Restaurant in West Hollywood.
Andre began his career in culinary education in 1994 and has taught at all the leading culinary schools in Los Angeles. He also worked as Chef Garde Manger at the prestigious Jonathan Club in Downtown Los Angeles.
Andre met his wife Cristina at the Southern California School of Culinary Arts in 1996. They worked together for a short three months as Andre left the school to join another culinary school. In late 1997 they rediscovered each other. Joining their talents of 30 years of cooking and 20 years of sales and marketing, they started Dining with Andre Catering in January 1998.

While both Andre and Cristina had full-time jobs as professional chefs, their customers encouraged them to open a food related retail business. In the fall of 1999, they found a location in South Pasadena and began to build their store Dining with Andre, a gourmet take out and catering company in December 1999.
