Nancy Maurer

Corporate Chef

When food has style, it’s likely Chef Nancy Maurer had a hand in it. As a former winner of the American Dairy Association’s “Say Cheese as Edible Art” Contest, Chef Nancy has both the skills to carve a 40-pound block of cheddar into a basket filled with flowers and the passion to play with food.


“It is a pleasure to partner with our customers and assist them in finding solutions using the products they know and love.”

Since joining the Chefs of the Mills in 2013, Chef Nancy has provided custom solutions for General Mills Foodservice’s customers and has served as the culinary lead for convenience stores. In addition to food styling, her expertise includes recipe development, foodservice operations, retail operations, training, and events.

Starting out at age 15 “working the line” at Ponderosa Steak House, Chef Nancy has built experience working in catering, high-volume banquet service, fine and casual dining, retail operations, and professional cheese carving. She has worked with the Food Network as a chef consultant and food stylist, and at an upscale Minnesota grocery.

A Certified Executive Chef, Nancy has an associate degree in culinary arts from St. Paul College, a bachelor’s degree in communication studies from Northwestern University, and a master’s degree in business administration with a concentration in global business management from Bethel University
