  • Barry Korte
    Executive Chef

    I am a native of Idaho, born and raised in the west central mountains. I have had many different jobs in the food and beverage industry. Owning or managing different restaurants, night clubs and cocktail lounges along the west coast. I came to Bon Appétit in 2012, here at The College of Idaho. I’ve been given a great opportunity to use my knowledge and love of food and I really enjoy all that working here on campus entails.

  • Jackie Beavers
    Sous Chef

    While I’ve only been in the food service industry for seven years, my experience is varied, from working at a country club, to bakeries, and even cruise ships. Bon Appetit stands above them all because they share my personal values when it comes to food: fresh, local and sustainable. Since 2010, I’ve worked for Bon Appetit in creating both nourishing and flavorful food, and I’m excited to be able to use my passion to provide others with a dining experience that goes beyond ordinary.

    I have been in the food service industry for nearly 20 years and have been with Bon Appetit for over 5 years. My passion for exceptional quality and outstanding flavor plays a key role in my everyday life. Good food comes from the heart and that is what I strive to bring to our cafés. I believe in a positive café environment where everybody, guests and employees alike feel a sense of belonging and overall well-being. Great food can be and is a catalyst for this to occur.
