General Mills Chefs of the mills spotlight Chef Ted Osorio

Chef Ted Osorio’s extensive foodservice career spans more than 30 years of working in hotels, fine dining restaurants, catering and non-commercial operations. Over that time, he’s developed a special appreciation for biscuits and how they deliver versatile, all-day appeal. He says, “As a chef it’s fun to be creative and make something out of nothing with a biscuit. I like to bring awareness to operators about how truly versatile they are.”

When reflecting on the creative process, Chef Ted likes to deliver solutions operators can really use. “We strive to create ideas that will be useful to an operation, not something that will take a lot of time, labor, budget or equipment — not an 8-step recipe.”

Chef Ted recommends these recipes for inspiration, noting, “You don’t have to be a professional chef to execute these ideas, but they may be ones you haven’t thought about.”
