Hero Profile » About Andy Husbands
Andy Husbands is the award-winning chef/owner of two of Boston's hottest restaurants, Tremont 647 and Sister Sorel. He started his culinary career with an after-school baking job when he was 14, and never looked back. Born and raised in Seattle, Husbands worked as a sous chef and, later, executive chef at the nationally renowned East Coast Grill in Cambridge, under James Beard Award winner Chris Schlesinger. Before opening Tremont 647 with high school friend Chris Hart in 1996, he traveled to the West Coast on his motorcycle, living on a farm in New Mexico and apprenticing at several San Francisco Bay-area restaurants. His cross-country influences have taught him to be bold and adventurous in his life and his cooking.
Husbands has made several TV appearances, including his run as a contestant in Season 6 of "Hell's Kitchen," which premiered on FOX Television Network, July 21, 2009. CBS featured him in a segment on "The Early Show" called "Chef on a Shoestring," in which he demonstrated how to cook a 3-course dinner for 4 people for less than $20. In the Boston area, he has appeared on "TV Diner," "Phantom Gourmet," and "WB in the Morning." He has also appeared on local TV stations across the country to promote his first book, "The Fearless Chef."
