Henry Walch : Sous Chef Lutsen Resort
Lutsen Resort Sous Chef Henry Walch developed a passion for food well into his career as a chef.  "It started out as a job, but transformed slowly into a passion."  Influenced by his wide travels throughout Latin America and his experiences at Marx Fusion Bistro in Stillwater, Henry's love for international cuisine has paralleled his devotion to the art.  Henry lives on the shore and spends his free time in the area's lakes and on it's trails.  "The natural beauty of Lutsen is enough to inspire any young chef".


Kristin Tyborski - Dakota, Minneapolis
Chef Kristin got her start cooking as the eldest daughter of her family.  A backpacking trip across Western Europe opened her eyes to her true love for food.  Realizing that cooking was not only a part of her daily life but a passion, she set off on a 10 year journey to understand the flavor and the heritage of food.  Staring in her home town of Fargo, where she landed her first sous chef position, she moved on to a variety of well-known restaurants.  Kirstin spent a season surrounded by mountains and the finest ingredients at The Ranch in Dillon, Colorado, voted by the Zagat Guide three times for 'Best Restaurant'.  Since her return to Minneapolis, she has worked and added to her skills at Solera, Porter & Frye, Sea Change and consulted at Mill City Cafe. She is now co-executive chef of the Dakota in downtown Minneapolis.
